Part of Verve Wine

Argot in partnership with Verve Wine is on a mission to spread the love and discovery of good wine, inspire passion, and build community. Argot is a bistro inspired restaurant with classic French influence on it's cuisine and a wine list that spans the globe to meet every palette.

We believe the most memorable bottles of wine in our lives have less to do with what’s inside the bottle and more to do with who you share it with and why you're gathered. Our hospitality and excitement around wine is what sets us apart in pulling back the curtain to good wine enhancing any night out, celebration, or gathering.
