Sometimes nothing satisfies quite like a glass of wine. Whether it’s a bottle of red, white or rosé, there are plenty of fantastic wine bars and restaurants across Miami Beach. Take your pick from glittering luxury hotel lobby bars to hidden gem neighborhood restaurants. You’ll be sure to find your favorite pour or perhaps discover something new. Read on for our guide to the best wine bars in Miami Beach.

The Forge

A classic fine dining restaurant, The Forge has been a mainstay in Miami Beach for over 50 years. Passed down over two generations of the Malnik family, the steakhouse and wine bar is a go-to amongst Miami tastemakers and international travelers, alike. Home to an Enomatic wine machine serving up to 80 bottles by the glass, allow their executive sommelier Gini Santangelo to guide you on a tasting experience or select the perfect bottle to compliment your meal. You can also design your own tasting experience by purchasing a wine card and dispensing the wine yourself. Happy hour on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6 p.m. to midnight means $50 bottles of Veuve Clicquot, a live DJ and complimentary hors d’oeuvres at the bar, making it one of the most popular and longest running hotspots on the beach.

La Cave d’Azur

A wine shop and bar next door to its haute cuisine French-Mediterranean sister restaurant Villa Azur, La Cave d’Azur is the perfect place to pair an afternoon glass of wine with a cheese and charcuterie plate. This casual, yet chic destination opens at 11 a.m. for lunch and offers wine tastings on Wednesday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Pair that with Kumamoto oysters, tomato crostini with aged parmigiano and tuna tartare and you’ve got a lovely happy hour.

Cibo Wine Bar

A sprawling wine bar in South Beach’s South of Fifth (SoFi) neighborhood, Cibo Wine Bar is an oenophile’s dream. With a wraparound bar, open kitchen and café table seating inside a warm, yet modern industrial space, it’s the perfect place for date night. Boasting more than 3,500 bottles of wine in a two-story wine room equipped with a harnessed wine angel to retrieve bottles, you’ll find exquisite, rare wines from every corner of the world. With a full menu, pair your wine with everything from pizza to pasta and light bites, like Italian cheeses and beef carpaccio.

Macchialina

A beloved neighborhood Italian restaurant on Alton Road in South Beach, Macchialina is helmed by James Beard Award semifinalist Chef Michael Pirolo who excels in creative takes on classic dishes. They also boast one of the most unique wine menus in town, serving a wide selection of sustainable, organic, biodynamic and natural wines. They’re also known for their selection of Lambruscos and orange wines by the glass, as well as an extensive menu of Italian wines from a wide range of regions. Best of all, their succulent handmade pasta is only $10 on Thursdays, so make your reservation for a delicious night of Italian wine and food.

The St. Regis Bar & Wine Vault at The St. Regis Bal Harbour

Set in the glittering jewel box of The St. Regis Bal Harbour lobby designed by Yabu Pushelberg, The St. Regis Bar & Wine Vault boasts black Chinese God flower marble floors, an antique-mirrored bar and endless ocean views. Their nightly Champagne sabering ritual is a highlight, as well as the Wine Vault boasting 2,500 bottles of wine from 450 vineyards and 14 countries, highlighting both Old and New World Wines, as well as high-end and small growers. It’s perhaps the most chic destination in Miami Beach to sip a glass of wine by the sea at sunset.

Via Emilia 9

A true hidden gem in South Beach, Via Emilia 9 is a locally-owned neighborhood restaurant helmed by a husband and wife duo from Tuscany. With homemade pasta, charcuterie and cheeses imported from Italy, they also boast a fantastic Italian wine list. Choose from Lambruscos, Chiantis, Pinot Nero, Pinot Grigios, Barolos and Barberas. They also have a small market selling homemade sauces and imported olive oils to take home.
