Drinks, Know Your NOLA

Wine Down! Here are 12 local spots to get your favorite bottles of wine during the quarantine

Yes, some of them even deliver!

Welp, I’m sure you heard the news. The stay-at-home mandate continues as is until May 15 (and probably in some other form after that).

Whether that makes you happy, sad, angry or anxious, this seems like a good time for a glass of wine.

Last week we shared the best places in New Orleans for to-go craft beers and cocktails. Today we’re taking a look at which of the city’s wine shops are still operating for curbside take-out or delivery.

Here’s a list of a dozen of our favorite local spots to pick up a bottle of red (or a bottle of white…depending on what kind of mood you’re in tonight).

Did we miss one? Leave us a note on social media so we can spread the word on who else is #NOLAopen.
