Above: Housemade pastas at Olive & June, one of the top Italian restaurants in Austin where the food scene has been booming in recent years.
Since its opening in 2012, not only has Olive & June stood out from the crowded field of new Italian restaurants in Austin, Texas, but it has also set a new benchmark for Italian wine in the state’s capital: Its all-Italian wine list offers what is by far the city’s largest and most comprehensive selection of wines from Italy (see the wine list here, updated this week).
Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, rivaled only by Houston. And it’s also one of the country’s hottest restaurant markets. It seems that a new Italian restaurant opens there nearly every week.
Even with so many new Italian dining destinations popping up across the city, Olive & June remains a local favorite in a city with some of the best food in America. And the owners have never strayed from their devotion to an all-Italian wine program.
We couldn’t be more proud that Villa Sandi is poured there by-the-glass.
Thank you Olive & June for making us part of your thoughtful, soulful wine list. Evviva il vino italiano!
