Wine Institute of New Orleans
Wine Institute of New Orleans Review
This hybrid institute known by the acronym w.i.n.o. is part wine school, part wine store, and part high-tech wine-tasting experience. A state-of-the-art Italian wine-serving system dispenses wine by the ounce so patrons can design their own flights and taste many more wines than at traditional tastings. Educate your palette with their selection of 120 wines, or sip a beer or cocktail—both pair just as well with charcuterie, artisanal cheese, and other small plates. w.i.n.o. also offers a weekly wine-tasting class on Tuesday evenings. Classes fill up quickly, so plan ahead.
