This fabulous little location called Farpointe Cellar Wine Bistro is difficult for me to blog about. In a way I don’t want anyone else to discover it because I want it to be all mine! But I have to. It is such a rare find in our area. It is the neatest, little spot in Southlake Texas!
I met some co-workers there last night to wish a dear friend goodbye and good luck on her next endeavor. I walked up under the arbor that covered adorable bistro tables and immediately knew it was going to offer a little something different, lagniappe, a little something extra. I literally stopped in my tracks and inhaled with surprise as I looked around the tiny, quaint place! If I could own anything in the world besides a dive restaurant or B&B in the mountains, would be a little wine place like this one. An ample bar for the size of the place was nestled in the corner while every other corner was full of cozy furniture set up in conversation style pods. There was even a wine box of blankets to snuggle up with. I fell in love immediately and insisted it would be a regular place to visit from now on.
We instantly flopped down into one of the groups of fat, cozy chairs and ordered flights of wine. Each flight is 3 heavy pours of varieties of related wines. I got the white wine flight. This flight consisted of Giocato Pinot Grigio 2009 (Primorska, Slovenia), Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc 2009 (Napa Valley, California) and Ferraton Pere & Fils La Matiniere 2009 (Northern Rhone, France). All were very good.
They serve a smorgasbord of pairings to go with your wine to include cheeses, meats, olives, breads, crackers and even chocolate! We were able to pick something for everyone since the let you create your own platters. The goat cheese selection is magnificent! The fig and honey flavor was fought over.
Overall, this was the perfect place to enjoy our time with each other as we reminisced over good times that we wouldn’t forget. The Bistro is next door to the Farpointe Cellar Wine Store that offers a wonderful selection of wines for any taste or budget. Located on Southlake Boulevard just west of Southlake Town Square, it is right in the heart of the hustle and bustle but nestled back from the road in the trees. Stop by! You will be really glad you did.
