With these magnificent places, often come wine bars that are quickly becoming hits. Here is a list of special spots to help you ‘wine’ down.
Outdoor seating with romantic strings of light swinging across from above–a perfect recipe for a casual and romantic night out. Located in the heart of the intersection between Midtown, Design District, and Wynwood, this destination links the three booming neighborhoods of our city. Lagniappe has won several impressive accolades, and even earned a spot on “The 21 Best Wine Bars in the Country.”
Atrio Restaurant & Wine Room
Atrio Restaurant & Wine Room is the epitome of sophistication with a view. Miami’s skyline can be seen from anywhere in the restaurant; having a glass of wine by the bay never seemed more romantic. With over 200 vintage wines in the wine attic, wine tasting can be all the more exciting with eight to ten guests joining you for the evening.
The 2010 winner of the Miami New Times “Best Wine Selection in a Restaurant” offers a unique experience Miamians can’t resist. The Enomatic segment is made up of 80 wines by the glass, where you can “be your own sommelier” and sample an international collection of your choice. By choosing Type I, The Forge’s executive sommelier will do the work for you–all you have to do is sip away. Type II requires your own expertise by free will.
Uvaggio Wine Bar
Crowned as one of the “Top 50 Places to Eat in Miami” by Yelp, Uvaggio Wine Bar guarantees good food and fine wine to its guests. While their menu categories are humorous, they offer a mean wine selection with various red and white wines to choose from. They also host events such as the Somm Slam, in which two top sommeliers go head-to-head to win a unique trophy. Guests will wine and dine on three dishes accompanied with wine pairings chosen by each sommelier. In addition, wine tastings are held every Saturday with special wine themes.
