Delight in a bold and unique wine list focused on low-production, high-quality wines at 13 Celsius.
Located in the heart of Midtown, this circa-1927 Mediterranean-style building creates an atmosphere reminiscent of the wine bars and Enotecas of Europe with its open-air courtyard, luxurious seating, and a nearly 40-foot white marble bar.
Inspired by life experiences in small European towns, owners Ian Rosenberg and Michael Sammons opened 13 Celsius in 2006 to create a similar atmosphere in Houston and combine it with their passion for architectural preservation and fine wine.
Featuring wines from all around the world, notably, the bar stores these wines in a climate-controlled cellar at 13 degrees celsius and serves them to patrons with the choice of by the bottle, glass, half-glass, and taste.
Looking for food to pair with your glass? The bar complements their wines with a dynamic cheese and charcuterie program, paninis, handmade truffles and also partner with local chefs to create wine-centric dinners and special events throughout the year.
And if wine just isn’t your thing, they’ve got you covered with over 30 bottled beers and a continually rotating draught selection highlighting seasonal and miniscule production brews.
Why 13 Celsius?
13 celsius is thought to be the optimal temperature to store and maintain the integrity of great wine.
With an aim toward providing Houston with the best wine possible, notably, 13 celsius is the only wine bar in town to keep its wine in a temperature-controlled cellar.
Valuing that the wines from their cellar enter the patron’s glass in the purest fashion possible, the bar takes care to ensure their bottles remain untouched, unmoved, and unaltered by any agent.
