Specializing in hard-to-find wines, the Lake Travis Wine Trader has been giving LT residents a better wine experience since 2005. This family owned and operated wine bar and wine shop prides itself on an extensive wine selection featuring over 30 wines by the glass and more than 1,000 premium selections by the bottle.
Located in the Lakeway Commons shopping center (look for LT Wine), the Lake Travis Wine Trader is a great spot to leisurely sip a glass of vino and relax. Even though the owners are serious wine collectors, the vibe at Lake Travis Wine Trader is laid back and fun, so everyone feels welcome. They also have a tasty menu of appetizers including artisan cheese trays.
If you stop by for a tasting you won’t be disappointed because the owners at Lake Travis Wine Trader like to share specialty wines while they last. Right now you can stop by for a glass of Caymus “40th Anniversary” Napa Cabernet Sauvignon for only $20 per glass. Wine connoisseurs know this is a terrific value, not to mention an incredibly tasty selection that’s abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. After all, Caymus Vineyards is the oldest vineyard in Napa Valley for Cabernet, so they’ve perfected the art of “hang time.”
The prices at Lake Travis Wine Trader are competitive, if not better than large retailers and they give back to the community. As they cleverly say, “Keep Austin Wined! Support your local winos.” The dollars spent locally enables them to give back to the Lake Travis community by sponsoring organizations like public and private school functions, youth sports associations, community fundraisers and more.
The Lake Travis Wine Trader is open every day (including Sunday) and hosts a variety of special events like a “Blue Plate Lunch” special on Fridays, weekend appetizer specials and premium tastings on Saturdays. They host dinners, seminars and their “Big Winos” events serve up a special selection of luxury wines that sell out fast.
The Lake Travis Wine Trader is a great spot to gather with friends and a cool place to throw a party. If you’re a new customer, you can stop and sign up for their e-newsletter and receive 20% off your first retail purchase or buy a glass of wine and get one for free. Who’s ready for a sip?
