Wine Café Offers Fun, Budget-Friendly Options for Late Summer Sips and Bites

IT’S SUMMER AND the living might be easy, but not so much on the pocketbook. Phoenix-born Postino Wine Café, which is popping up all over H-Town, is offering creative ways to keep you well fed — and watered — without breaking the bank during this historically high inflation, through Sept. 5. They’ve hit the easy button on summer wining and dining, and we’re fans.


Free Delivery 

The café offers free delivery Monday through Friday. Orders should be placed directly online via postinowinecafe.com. It’s a no-brainer for a last-minute dinner party, binge movie night, or when it’s too hot to cook. From meatballs and goat cheese in pomodoro sauce to smoked salmon on lavash bread and Brussels sprouts salad, there’s something for every palate.

Thursday Bruschetta Board and Bottle of Wine 

If you just want to get out of the house on a Thursday, Postino’s noted board and bottle deal now runs all day long. Pick your favorite bruschetta and a bottle of wine for $25. Follow @postinowinecafe on social media, where the weekly secret password will be announced to unlock this deal.

Cult Wine Club

If you sign up for Postino’s new wine club, there are perks galore. Cult Wine members receive a complimentary glass of wine each week, in addition to discounts, and special invitations. The best part is the seasonal wine bundle you pick up each quarter. Read up on it here.

Arrive Early

Its daily $6 until 5 deal offers $6 glasses of wine and pitchers of beer until 5pm. The early bird gets the worm!

Chill Out

All Postino patios sport high-tech cooling misters that specifically target humidity. When the sun goes down and that 7pm wind finally picks up, the patio misters kick on. You’ll have it made in the shade for the rest of the evening. Come hungry for the many great summery eats on the menu. Try the little gem Caesar salad and add a grilled chicken skewer for a delish value meal.
