"For your first stop, pop into House Wine. This quaint establishment offers an array of wine, some small pastries and delightful cheeseboards. Do not be surprised to find live music playing on the front porch. Our recommended first course is the Mediterranean-inspired roasted mozzarella, served with an olive tapenade, sundried tomatoes and toasted baguette. The plate comes with its own mini Sterno fire, so the two of you can roast mozzarella balls over the open flame together. This is a fun activity best shared, and the ooey, gooey cheese mixed with the garnishes atop the baguette makes a beautiful meld of flavors. Pair this with any of the wines you are in the mood for to create a first course that you’ll remember for many Valentine’s Days to come. (Note: House Wine offers half off all open bottles of wine by the glass on Sunday evenings. This is a great deal, but get there early to get your pick. They run out fast.) "

"The aptly named House Wine, located in a cozy residential home just off South Lamar, serves wine, artisanal small plates and homemade desserts. Regulars love the “happy hour every hour” selections, including $5 glasses of wine and $18 bottles, as well as the weekly specials, like free appetizers every Thursday. Take a wine-tasting class or just relax on the patio with house specialties, such as the Porch Fizz, a mix of sparkling wine, Izze, raspberries and a lemon twist."

"House Wine, on the other, very different hand, is like home, were your home tidy, streamlined, cozy, and posh, all at the same time. No wonder so many folks flock to it: Here, one may sip the yield of the grape whilst escaping his/her own disgusting domicile."
