38 & Vine, a new wine bar boasting dozens of self-serve varietals from across the globe, has officially opened its doors in Fort Worth.
The bar arrived on January 9 at 212 Carroll Street, Suite 130, in the Foundry District, according to a press release. It’s a little bit different than the typical wine bar, where bartenders help patrons select a wine and then pour them a glass — here, drinkers will buy a card that they can swipe at any of the self-serve wine stations to order a “sip,” or one-ounce pour, or “taste,” a three-ounce pour. Typical 6-ounce glasses will also be available.
As far as the grapes are concerned, expect 42 different reds, whites, and roses from the world’s biggest wine-producing regions. Fancier wines, known here as “cellar selections,” will be sold by the bottle, ranging in price from about $50 to $200. A menu of snacks like crostini toasts, salads, and lushly arranged cheeseboards will be on offer to help soak up all the booze, along with towering cakes.
38 and Vine is now open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
