Hi //FirstName//,


Starting this week, we are offering Tastings To Go for curbside pickup. With the holidays fast approaching, there are endless possibilities! Host your own COVID-safe wine tasting with your Bubble...Give a Thanksgiving gift to your employees along with a gift certificate to Bent Oak for them to buy their favorite wine from the tasting...Give as a hostess gift,  etc.  Start planning your event today and order your Tasting To Go under the Gifts & Wine Packages on our website.

As a reminder the tasting room is open by reservation only at 50% occupancy - we cannot accept walk-ups - and curbside pickup continues. We are operating under the TABC "51% Rule" which classifies us as a restaurant requiring non-wine purchases to be higher than the cost of the glass or bottle of wine.  While the Governor authorized restaurants to increase to 75% occupancy, we decided to stay at 50% to ensure your safety and ours, instead we are introducing new expanded hours starting on October 1st and 1st Friday Wine-downs!!!

New Expanded Hours

  • Thursday, Friday, Saturdays:  2pm to 7pm
  • Sundays: 1pm to 5pm
  • 1st Friday Wine Down: 1st Friday of the Month (October 2nd): 2pm to 8:30pm

Are you ready for some football? 

We had 49 people participate in week #2 which ended in a five-person tie and required use of the tiebreaker score to determine the winner.  Congratulations to Dan and Joyce Fitzgerald for getting 14 correct and having the closest total score to the tiebreaker game total score for the win.  They won a bottle of Dolcetto.


Join us for Week 3 of the NFL You Pick 'Em game.  You select the winners of each game and enter the total score of the Monday Night Football game.  A bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to this weekend's winner!  Below is the link to the pick 'em entry form.  Get your entry in before the Thursday night game and good luck! (Note: You can enter after Thursday night, but will have to take that game as a loss).


By the way if you have never played, anyone can do it.  If you do not know much about football, just pick your favorite cities, colors, or mascot.  Or all home or all away (this wins at least once a year per my historical tests).   If picking all home or away, the 2nd team listed is the home team such as Cincinnati Bengals (Away) vs Cleveland Browns (Home).  Join in the fun for a chance to win a bottle of wine!  The more the merrier!
