Wine List Description
The wine list at Husk is organized by soil type. There are five main sections: Limestone, Volcanic, Primary Rock, Slate and Alluvial. Wines are selected for the list by their ability to taste like the soil from which they are born. It’s very terroir-driven, with an emphasis on smaller producers.

Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"Crispy “Buffalo” pig-ear lettuce wraps with seasonal preparations like sweet vinegar-marinated cucumbers and red onion."

Perfect Pairing
Chilled English pea soup with Alabama blue crab, Meyer lemon yogurt, Tennessee bacon crumble and preserved egg yolk with Domaine de Belliviere’s 2010 L’Effraie from the Coteaux du Loir. The pretty, sweet stone fruit and midpalate weight, along with fresh and lively acidity, perfectly accentuate the sweet English pea and blue crab.

Wine Events
We are willing to open up any wine on the list, every night, to pour by the glass.

Video

Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
