Sugar Land will soon be getting its spin on as forthcoming Vino & Vinyl sets its sights on an early summer opening. The space, just over 1000 square feet, from owner Paul Killingsworth aims to meet the needs of three audiences: those who appreciate fine wine, those who appreciate great music, and those who have a hard time enjoying one without the other.
Look for 300+ select bottles ranging from West Coast Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to those representing countries worldwide. Over 200 records will grace the shelves including new, used, and bargain selections with a focus on indie pop, soul, roots rock, and indie electronic. High-end glassware and quality turntables will also be for sale.
Inspiration for the business stems from wanting people to have fun while "feeling at home, appreciated, and inspired." Says Killingsworth, "The wine and music business has an air of snobbery that is (more often than not) associated with it. We want to go beyond just the wine and music, and really love on people."
While the wine will not be served on the premises in the traditional sense, look for wine tasting events and daily samples — or buy a bottle to enjoy at BYOB neighbor Brandani's. As a bonus, each month Vino will showcase the work of eight local artists gallery-style complete with a kickoff event and silent auction throughout the month. 3340 FM 1092 RD, Suite 150, Missouri City, TX 77479
