America’s Best Wine Bars – 24/7 Wall St.

There’s a time and a place for dive bars and sports bars, with their loud music or deafening football matches, cheap beer and fried food. But once in a while, you might want a quieter evening to spend time alone with a book and a good cabernet, or to chat with a date without yelling over a ruckus. (For a well-balanced cocktail, go to one of the the best bars in America right now.)

If a quiet evening and quality groceries are what you crave, a wine bar may be an appropriate destination. With their expert sommeliers, tantalizing vintages by the glass and bottle, and delicious cheese and charcuterie platters (and often more serious entrees), these service-oriented establishments can deliver a top-notch tasting experience.

In determining the best wine bars in America, 24/7 Tempo exercised its discretion after reviewing information from a variety of sources, including Carafe, Passionate about wine, Gayot, Tasting table, Eater, Free timeand the Sommeliers Choice Award, as well as many local and regional sites and user reviews from Google and Yelp. Bars are listed alphabetically and unranked.

While a few of these wine bars only serve drinks, most also serve at least small plates of various kinds, and some are full-service restaurants that are known for their elegant dining. Many offer flights and/or tasting classes and overall these bars aim to educate and help their patrons find a wine they will like.

Some also double as wine and specialty food shops, and many offer weekly tasting sessions, wine classes, or monthly wine clubs. A few wineries are on the list, offering their own vintages. Most serve a wide selection of wines from around the world, while some specialize in organic or natural wines (made without preservatives), and a few in California aim to showcase wines made in their region. (Find out which California wine was named one of the the 50 best wines in the world this year.)
