For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we meet with Ron and Kristina Tucker, the owners and winemakers at Decant Urban Winery. The Winery opened back in February of 2019 in a spot in the Garden Oaks neighborhood near the Houston Heights. It was an ideal spot for Ron and Kristina to open a winery in as several breweries had either opened or had plans to open in the area, making it a one stop area for a lot of customers and visitors looking to enjoy a drink.
When visiting Decant, it’s hard to believe that they building they’re in used to be an old run down auto body shop. They bought the property back in July of 2017 and although they were able to start making their wines, at the time it was hard to get the correct permits to open a tasting room. They sold their wines locally for a while and then eventually decided to make a small tasting lounge in a converted part of office space. They do have plans on continuing construction to make a larger tasting space for the public to enjoy.
