20 Best Wine Happy Hours in Austin

Wine Happy Hours

Austin may pride itself on being a beer town – I’ve seen fights break out over what’s better, Austin Beerworks or Hops & Grain. (The answer is BOTH). Plus, there seems to be a new brewery opening every other week. But sometimes, Austinites need to take a break from the hops and go for the grapes. We’ve searched (and sampled?) to find the 20 best wine happy hours Austin has to offer, from every corner of the capital city proper. Don’t worry — they aren’t all from 5-6pm and there are also plenty of other deals to be found. If your color is red, white, blush or bubbly, there’s a a social hour calling your name.
