2014 Top 10 Wine Bars in the US
Where to Sip in Style
America's Best Wine Bars
Gone are the days of stuffy wine bars with thick catalogues showcasing staunch French and Italian varietals. Today's wine bar is as likely to serve Spanish tapas fare as it is to host a weekend DJ or singles mixer. The wines are equally as exciting, with little-known grapes from obscure regions being poured across the country. In Charleston, wine fans can guess at the vintage of their glass of Grüner Veltliner, while New Yorkers share some fino sherry and business-minded San Franciscans enjoy bocce ball with their bottles. At any of GAYOT's Top 10 Wine Bars in the U.S., wines are the star — though they don't always need to be center stage.
