There’s no pretension at Uncorked Tasting Room & Wine Bar. And yet, this comfy, redone old house cum lounge abounds with culture. And while 127 different wines are served from 13 countries, the beer is strictly from Texas. Down-to-earth people come here to confabulate, try new wines — sometimes by the flight — nibble local cheese and truffle pate, and take in the soaring skyline of downtown. Most fun is the card that comes with your wine, so you can check off everything you try and write your own review.
