She’s a philantropher. A health care executive. And the owner of The Art of Wine, a neighborhood wine bar in Preston Hollow. Ariane Garcia found herself with a business plan to write for her graduate studies at Southern Methodist University and The Art of Wine was born.
I had a chance to visit ArtofWine and chat with Ariane about her vision for the business. It’s a retail boutique, by-the-glass bar, and local artist display with a goal of providing off the beaten path as well as better known labels. I found Billecart-Salmon to Hoopes Vineyards to Guidobono to Long Meadow Ranch as well as the better-known labels.
The wine bar also offers a mix of wine and painting classes as well as wine education. It’s a great neighborhood gathering place to grab a glass of wine and toast to the week’s victories.
