Where to Find Natural Wine: Texas and Oklahoma

Posted by Holly Berrigan on

With Holly growing up in Oklahoma and Texas, it's about time we made some recommendations for all our friends hanging out in Houston, Austin, Dallas, and OKC! If you'd asked us about natural wine in these locations only a few months ago we would have said it was pretty slim pickings, but that's changing fast! There's been some stellar bars opening in Houston, Texas wine country, and even some can't-miss wine bars in Oklahoma City.

Also, we're throwing a twist in this one because Texas is home to several natural winemakers! Not only can you find bars and restaurants serving natural wine, but you can even get out there and visit in person.

COVID NOTE:
We have worked to put notes on all these establishments for their COVID regulations so you can know what kind of experience to expect. These regulations change often so please let us know if you find any changes and we will keep this map as updated as possible!

Where to Find Natural Wine: Houston

Houston is quickly embracing natural wine in a big way! With Light Years opening earlier this year and Penny Quarter just opening in August the speed with which natural wine is taking over Houston is very impressive.

Where to Find Natural Wine: Austin

No one should be surprised to find Austin listed as a location with a poppin' natural wine scene. Known for being "weird" and at the helm of the natural and organic movement, the options both in Austin and in the Texas Hill Country, or Wine Country are excellent! This was also the first time we've put a brewery on our list of places to find natural wine, so bravo to Jester King! We didn't know what section to put you in :-)

Natural Winemakers: Texas 

Robert Clay Natural Wine Vineyard in Texas

Lucky Texans also have some natural winemakers all over the state between Marfa and Houston! While Alta Marfa is only at the beginning of its project, they are definitely worth following! Robert Clay has an amazing partnership with Krista Scruggs from Vermont and is doing very exciting things, and Southold farm + cellar is opening a natural wine bar this fall in their town so natural wine is about to have a boom from all sides in oil country!

Alta Marfa- 740 Blue Mountain Trail, Fort Davis, TX 79734
