Great wines and decent food. Â Was a little let down with one of their "Signature" dishes based on the portion (got a full, which was 5 crostinis with a grab mixture if I recall correctly) and the flavor. Â Being from the north east, it was definitely something I could have made, and unfortunately, probably could have made it a bit better.
Back to the wines- great wines, they sell by the glass and bottle, and have boxes to pack bottles for purchase which I thought was a great feature!
All in all I give it a 4/5 based on the atmosphere (while in the middle of the terminal, literally, it doesn't feel like it at all) and the wine was great.
After stumbling around the airport after my flight had been cancelled I stumbled into this wine bar
I sat down and was given the run through of how things work. At first I felt that they didn't really care for my custom as I am younger than their usual clientele but after I lied and said I was a professional golf and returning back to play the US open they quickly changed and became very helpful and welcoming.
The wines that the serve are from all over the world. I chose the world reds flights in which all of my three tasting was very good so I decided to have a glad of the Spanish red that I tasted (I forget the name)
In all it was a very nice experience mingling with business class types and pretending I was one
Just wish the staff were a little more friendly to us economy class types.
I'm a total fan, and regularly plan to get to the airport early to enjoy a glass of fine wine! None of the KJ/Alamos plonk but a wide spectrum of nice wines from around the world. I like to go here to sample wines not always available by the glass at other establishments and find the staff knowledgeable and eager to assist. Everything from Amon Ra (high end Aussie) to obscure WA to other interesting geos.
Food is okay too, but it serves only as an accompaniment to the wine!
I was in Dulles Airport for about a 3 hour layover and I originally thought I was going to die of boredom. Â As if the "America!" (yes with a big exclamation mark!) wasn't sad enough, the terminal is gigantic, so I decided to go a-wandering.
Amazingly I found this oasis in the middle of the terminal. Â They had a nice patio seating area and a small lounge-like area where you could sit down, order some food and more importantly... wine. Â They serve their food in tapas style and have a pretty wide assortment of wines for you to order from. Â
A cool thing about their wine selection is that they also pour 1/3 glasses so you can try several of a "themed" flight. Â I thought this was kinda cool cause you really never know what to order at places like these... so why not order a bunch! Â I ordered a flight and also the pulled pork tacos.
The wine was quite pleasant, especially cause all three was only 8 dollars. Â The tacos were pretty average, nothing mind blowing, but it was pretty good for airport food. Â I was pretty impressed.
If I ever come back to DC and have any time at all, I'd come back to Vino Volo to "waste" some time...
This place is great! You may have to wait a bit for a seat/table but it's at the airport so people come and go pretty quickly. They offer great wine options at various price points and excellent quality food from simple nibbles to more elaborate fare. It sure beats the other options right around it! I loved the concept and the quality of the product. I will definitely be back the next time I'm in that part of Dulles.Review Source:
After a tiring work trip to DC, I was ready to just chill. Vino Volo was perfect for that. Right when you get off the new subway and reach terminal B, there it is... a wine oasis. The wine and small tapas style dishes beckoned me into the fenced off "terrace" area... in the middle of the concourse. Â
I ordered the sample flight of reds from around the world - $7 gets you a 1/3 glass of 3 different wines. Â I also got the herb seasoned olives ($3) and the small dish of tacos ($5). Â Service was friendly and fast. The snacks were tasty and were complimented nicely by the reds. Â I liked the shiraz the best, but all 3 were really great.
Then I hopped on my plane and knocked out in a nice slumber for my flight home.
