Comments  (2)

Oct 9, 2012 —  For oenophiles, there’s no better place to sample the world’s vineyards than at a good wine bar. With access to a wide range of regions and varieties, a great wine bar will have you reveling like Bacchus by the end of the bottle. From classic Tuscan Chiantis to the boldest experimental blends out of Napa, a seat at a wine bar can be a ticket to the world’s best wineries.

Whether you’re looking for a glass of vintage from Italian vineyards with ancient Roman roots or want to explore the flavors of an emerging biodynamic and organic winery, a wine bar is your key to revisiting old favorites or discovering something new. And with wine bars specializing in everything from budget-conscious local varieties to exclusive global flavors, there’s sure to be a right fit for both your tastes and your wallet.

So if you’re ready to sniff like a seasoned sommelier or chug the grape like Hemingway, check out this list of our favorite wine bars from around the world. With so many tasting options, it’s just a shame you can only drink one glass at a time.

What are your favorite wine bars?

Samantha L. Oct 9, 2012
One of the best things in the world is having a glass of wine in a relaxed, dimly lit bar where the bartender has great recommendations. Terroir in NYC is the perfect spot for a wine lover - not only will they let you sample wines until you like one but their recommendations are always on point. Would absolutely love to visit Gordon's but Covell is more realistically next up on the list.

I've always wanted to go to Gordon's. Love that it's built out of an old cave. Favorite in LA is definitely Covell.
