Wine Bar
Wanderlust Wine Co. is currently the largest wine on tap winery in Texas that also allows patrons to serve themselves at their own pace, charging them only for the ounces they pour! Some refer to us as the Froyo or Dave & Busters of wine. Our selection of wines also includes Ciders, Meads, Sakes, and Wine-Based Cocktails. Our Wine Wednesday specials are fan favorites, as all of our wines on tap are 50% off throughout the day, and our daily Tappy Hours (3 PM - 6 PM) is the next best thing with 30% off all wines on tap, including food specials from The Heel of the Boot. Live Music and Entertainment is also something that can be found throughout most days of the week, and monthly events include Yoga, Health & Wellness, Art Shows & Workshops, and Comedy Specials. Paid parking is available all around the winery, starting at $5, and our patio is pet-friendly. Come and enjoy over 56 wines on tap, exquisite Italian food (The Heel of the Boot), and a chill atmosphere! Cheers y'all!

Love Wanderlust! Wednesday’s can be a little crazy, but the deal can’t be beat. The Heel of the Boot is super convenient and the outdoor space is nice and distanced.

Great experience! My boyfriend and I came here during our weekend trip to Austin. Fun to try out all the different wines and having a spending card made it so much easier and convenient. Will be back again!

Dope! Loved it. So many wines on tap and you can try as little or as much of any kind you want. The food truck was amazing, authentic Itialian!

Loved my first visit here! Everyone had masks on when at the pouring wall, seating areas inside were plenty spaced apart and super comfortable. Happy hour pricing was a great deal when you think about how much a glass of wine is at a typical bar anyway. Liked being able to try a taste to decide on a full glass. The truffle fries from The Heel of the Boots truck were to die for. We’ll definitely be going back!!

We came to The Heel of the Boot with high expectations after reading all the reviews. I gave them a 4 star because the flavor was on point but the noodles were kind of hard. We ended up not staying to dine in the outdoor seating area available due to too many people. The decor was really nice and gave off a cool vibe. Would recommend but might be best to taste your food before you leave.

Really fun concept with a lot of different wine options. East to try new wines and experiment. Food truck was Italian. Decent but not amazing. Definitely would go back - just wish they allowed you stay at your table for longer than 90 mins! Hopefully that ends when covid restrictions do.

Hi Margaret! Thank you for coming to visit us recently! Yes, we are moving away from reservations, so that guests may enjoy as much as they'd like, but now sections/tables will be first come first served. We appreciate your understanding of our previous 1.5-hour reservations and we hope to see you again soon for some more great wines and times! Cheers!

It was closed!!!!! We paid to uber there and showed up in the cold weather to a closed restaurant. This is on OpenTable and Wanderlust. Please update the hours!

I bet the experience would have been amazing if it had been open.

Hi! We apologize for the inconvenience you and your friends had when you realized we were closed, but we strongly believe this is an UNJUST REVIEW which we hope you reconsider. Given the extreme cold weather and severe circumstances our city faced last week, many people lost power, heat, water, service, and lack of food sources, our team included. We hope you reconsider your review, making it one based on your experience at Wanderlust Wine Co., and not based on uncontrolled circumstances. Cheers
