The Wine “Cellars” of Houmas House
A collection of Fine Boutique Wines has been selected to accompany our Nouvelle Louisiane Menus. The Wine Cellars at Houmas House are as unique as the Plantation itself. We have converted the historic water cisterns at the rear of the main house 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. We are able to house over 1000 cases and 500 varietals of wines. These wonderfully creative spaces are not on the tour, but we would be happy to show them upon request.
Sunday Brunch with a Southern Twist
Brunch is offered every Sunday in Cafe Burnside from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. The menu includes breakfast specialties like Eggs Creole and Crawfish and Brie Omelettes. We also offer a buffet with a large selection of Louisiana favorites. Brunch is a little more casual, with a larger, more varied menu that the whole family can enjoy. Come try our “Sunday Brunch with a Southern Twist.”
Reservations are not required, but recommended for tables of 6 or more.
