Wine + Italy = perfection. What else would you expect from the oldest wine-growing region on the planet? So don’t be surprised to have such a wide variety of wine bars in Florence to indulge in the world’s finest varietals.
Now before we get to the bars themselves, it would be impossible to talk about wine in Florence without mentioning the Chianti Region right next door. Just twenty miles south of the city are some of the finest vineyards in all of Italy and of course the wine shops to go along with them where sampling the aged grapes are a necessity.
Once fully sauced from a trip down south, it’s time to indulge in more Italian wines at bars all over Florence. Probably the most well known wine bar in the city is Dolce Vita. Here, a super-trendy crowd eats, drinks, and flirts in the various seating areas, bars, and nooks. In the summer, patrons can take their glasses out onto the terrace or explore the rest of the venue which includes an art gallery with rotating exhibits.
There are many more Florence wine bars to choose from, but considering that wine is just sitting at every table in practically every restaurant and bar in the city, you hardly need to venture into one in order to experience what the Italians have been growing for thousands of years.
