For the past several months, Steve Buechner and John Glanzman have been working on building a new bottle shop and wine bar called Light Years. Located next to Good Dog Houston’s Montrose location at 1304 West Alabama St., Light Years Natural Wine Shop + Bar provides a dedicated home for a specific style of wine making that’s becoming more popular around the world. As its name implies, Light Years represents a break from that world. The shop’s approximately 200 different bottles follow the natural wine ethos of being made from grapes that are grown without pesticides and that use natural yeast fermentation. Originally started in France’s Loire Valley, the movement has spread across the winemaking world. When it opens later this month, Light Years will stock wines from France, Italy, Australia, Chile — even Texas.
