The Wine “Cellars” of Houmas HouseA Collection of Fine Boutique Wines
A collection of boutique wines have been selected to accompany our Nouvelle Louisiane Menus. The Wine Cellars at Houmas House are as unique as the Plantation itself. The historic water cisterns at the rear of the main house have been converted into handsome “wine cellars.” Inside, the large water tanks have been replaced with cast iron balconies and circular staircases that are used to fetch that specific vintage of champagne or wine. Unique bottle holders are attached to the masonry walls, allowing each label to be read without having to touch the bottle. The white wine cellar is also home to our selection of fine champagnes, it is kept at exactly 56 degrees F. The red wine cellar is kept at 70 degrees F. Over 1000 cases and 500 varietals of wines are housed in these “cellars”. These wonderfully creative spaces are not on the tour, but we would be happy to show them upon request.
Houmas House is a beautiful plantation located near New Orleans in Darrow, Louisiana. We’re open 7 days a week from 9am to 7pm. At Houmas House, you can tour the grounds, stay in the inn, enjoy Louisiana cuisine, and host one-of-a-kind weddings and events.
