We had walked past W.I.N.O. several times, since they opened, and it was always too early – they were always closed. So, on a rainy June afternoon, I made my way from the Hilton Riverside to W.I.N.O., just before 2:00pm. Fortunately, there was an awning,...More

This place has become a go-to for us when we want wine in New Orleans (and who doesn't!). Tons of wine on tap to try and sample. They also have some good small plates to snack on while you sip.

A bit outside the super crowded areas of Nola, you can enjoy a cozy wine bar with good selection of red and whites. Some more champagne would be appreciated. Can't miss the cheese and salami cutting table. A nice spot.

Helpful staff explained how the tasting works, and it looks like you are tasting it from a tap. Good choices and price ranges vary. It's was a fun and new way to decide what to purchase, a must stop for wine lovers.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
