Plant It Forward Farm Shares
On March 8th 2022 we will start having weekly Plant It Forward Farm Share drops at the Bodega. A wonderful organization that we are happy to work with, I relied heavily on them when I was a chef. Incredible restaurant quality local produce, delivered weekly to Bodega Bellaire! Scan QR below or swing by to get more info and sign up!
Stay Loyal To Local
Staying local is crucial for many different reasons...not only does it stimulate the local economy, it is also support for local entrepreneurs and their families. What's great about Bellaire is that we have a good number of locally owned businesses to support! Plus we have things like the Braeswood Farmers Market where folks from all over Houston bring their wares to Bellaire. It's easy to go the cheap corporate chain route for many things but try to look past the convenience/cheapness and work with your local retailers. Often you will find that not only is the quality much higher for what you're getting, but the retailers are willing to make it convenient for you to patronize them, instead of the big guys.
It pays to live locally...better service, better quality and close connections to the community.
Local Businesses We Love:
Blood Brothers BBQ
Viet Nom Noms
Yoga 2 Gather
New York Eatery
Tacos El Jaibo
Braeswood Farmers Market
...we find new favorites all the time!
Wine Tasting/Art Show on the 26th
Here we go again! Come by on Saturday February 26th from 1-4pm for our next wine tasting with Serendipity Wines. We will also be joined by Cochinita Co. sampling her incredible Mexican Foods. Plus...we are hosting Mike McCorkle for his art opening in our shop, a Bellaire native, his works are fun and mischievous.
As always, no reservations or any payment required to attend...
Come by, enjoy some wine, food and view the latest art at the Bodega!
Sunday Funday Tastings
We have so many requests for wine tastings! We are going to start having tastings on Sundays from 3-5pm... we will have 4-5 bottles available to taste that are themed...we are thinking Oregon or Italy for the first session. For all of our funk lovers out there, there will definitely be a funky Sunday coming up! Stay tuned to our insta for more details!!
Marissa Ross makes us laugh!
She goes against the grain of the male dominated wine industry norms (which can be antiquated and fuddy-duddy). She is funny, well spoken but cusses a lot and is down to earth when describing wines. Formerly the wine editor for Bon Appetit, she has a way of writing about wines that sometimes make us laugh our asses off but is always spot on in her descriptions! She recently published a great book on all things wine called "Wine. All the time." it is a must read for people that want to learn more about wine but is also an engaging read for those well versed in the wine world!

We've got the beers!
Bodega Bellaire has started carrying a selection of hard to find beers from Houston, Texas and beyond! We are working with an importer out of Austin that really has some incredible, hard to find offerings for the Texas market. In addition, we now carry True Anomaly Brewing at the shop! One of our favorite breweries in Houston, they have an incredible line up of modern brewhouse offerings. Be on the lookout for funky farmhouse ales, modern IPA's and hyperlocal traditional European brews...all at the Bodega. We bring the best to you!
