Those of you who know me from the wine group know that I like to have at least one Meetup during football season at WINO to watch the Saints game smoke-free surrounded by great wines.
For anyone who hasn't been to WINO AKA Wine Institute of New Orleans, it's a great place in the Warehouse District where you can sample a wide variety of wines via an enomatic dispenser system. What does that mean? It's a self-serve wine bar!
Street parking is available in the area, though you may have to scout around a bit (in other words, be sure to leave early enough to be able to park nearby). There's also a paid parking lot in the next block at Poydras next to the Piazza D'Italia.
WINO has a great selection of wines that you can choose to taste a sample of or enjoy a full glass of. Also, when you're done sampling and sipping, you can get a printout of everything you've tried to help you remember what you liked.
WINO also offers a light menu of food items: http://www.winoschool.com/menu/
See you there!
