Two readers have contacted me about the bad service they’ve experienced at Twisted Vine. One writes:
I would take the opportunity … to ask if I’m the only person have problems with the Twisted Vine / Tony’s Wine Warehouse. Went to a tasting at the Twisted Vine (wine bar owned by Tony’s in a converted Chili’s on Greenville – a “work in progress” at the time) won at an auction by a friend, and let the wine guys talk me into some wine. Anyway, because they “don’t keep stock on hand” at the Twisted Vine, they were to deliver it the next week. It never showed, never showed, never showed. Two weeks later I call, and they told me it had to be ordered, was delayed and would be there the next week. Now, over a month later, no wine, no working phones at either location, Tony’s website down, and according to Pegasus News, Tony’s is gutted and closed. I haven’t done a drive by, but I would venture a guess The Twisted Vine might be in the same condition. Anyone else?
Oh, this is a familiar story. One, I believe, Mark Stuertz, then of the Dallas Observer, told well.
