Please note that this was an arranged tasting.

House of Wine (also known as HOW) is a rustic and cozy French wine bar located on the 7th floor of Three on the Bund (along with Jean Georges, Nougatine, New Heights, etc.) It’s a casual and intimate gathering place where you can share a few bottles of wine among friends while nibbling off a classic French snack menu. Charcuterie? Seafood platter? Beef ribs? Croque Monsieur et Madam? They’ve got ’em all.

HOW directly imports wines from French organic vineyards, ranging from Loire Valley, Bordeaux region, South West , Languedoc-Roussillon, Rhone Valley, Provence, Beaujolais, Burgundy, Alsace and Champagne. The cellar houses an extensive selection with a wide price range – starting from 55 rmb for a glass, and from 250rmb to a few thousands for a bottle.

We started with a plate of assorted cold cuts and antipasti (138 RMB).

Then, a refreshing seafood platter (388 RMB) of 6 oysters, 8 Souther Ocean shrimps, 4 Alaska King Crab legs, and 1 whole bread crab. FYI, the seafood platter gets discounted to 300 RMB every Friday.

A glass of white to go with the seafood.

Then arrived the 1 kg beef rib served with fries and bearnaise sauce (490 RMB). What a spectacle! We stared in awe at the sheer size of this plate, enough to be shared among 4 people. Better yet, the ribs get discounted to 400 RMB every Saturday.

A glass of red to go with the beef.

The convivial vibe here is delightfully contagious. Come hungry, leave happy.
