Hg2 : The Hedonist


The décor at the Wine Institute of New Orleans, or W.I.N.O., is Spartan, but the Warehouse District bar is a paradise for oenophiles. The narrow room is lined with rows of gleaming Enomatic machines attached to 80 bottles of wine ranging from California cabernet to precious Château d’Yquem. After buying a debit card, you can purchase a one-ounce taste, or a full glass, from any bottle and debate for hours the merits and faults of the juice. If you find something outstanding, this wine bar can also sell you a bottle. Add a plate of cheese or olives, and you have the perfect pre-dinner stop for the serious wine drinker.
