From intimate wine bars to a live jazz venue and even a wine vault found inside a gas station on US-1, Miami is home to a wide array of options for enjoying fine wine. You’ll even find wines made from tropical fruits grown locally. Read on for our guide to the very best of Miami’s wine bars.


Lagniappe is a New Orleans-inspired wine bar and live music venue in Midtown where you can purchase your bottle of wine and build your own cheese and charcuterie plate from the indoor shop and then grab a table in the sprawling outdoor patio. It also boasts a barbecue grilling up everything from vegetables to steak and shrimp. It’s the perfect place to break bread and drink with friends in a convivial atmosphere. It’s also one of the best spots in Miami to enjoy jazz music nightly.

Schnebly Redland's Winery & Brewery

Schnebly Redland's Winery & Brewery is famed for its vintages and beers made from Florida’s wealth of exotic fruits – like lychee, guava, carambola, avocado and passion fruit to name a few. On the weekends, grab a seat at one of their wooden tables, listen to live music and take in the gorgeous scenery. It's located in the heart of a lush tropical garden with coral waterfalls and large tiki huts in South Dade’s heartland.

El Carajo

One of the most surprising destinations for wine in Miami is actually found inside a Mobil gas station off US-1 near Coconut Grove. El Carajo specializes in international wines and Spanish tapas, garnering a cult following for its quirky location and authentic cuisine. Opened by the Fonesca family in 2011, El Carajo carries over 600 bottles of wine from around the world that pair with classic Spanish dishes like Galician octopus, fried sardines and potato omelet with chorizo. It’s worth a visit for the novelty alone – and you’ll be glad you did once you have a sip of their fine wine.

Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante

Nestled in South Beach’s charming Sunset Harbour area, Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante is a longstanding neighborhood favorite. The wine list, with more than 300 labels, complements the hearty, rustic cuisine. Enjoy a full meal paired with fine wines, or sample a salumeria board while enjoying the sun set over Biscayne Bay right across the street from the restaurant.

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant

Located in the CityPlace Doral dining and entertainment complex in the heart of the Doral area, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant is the place to go to find fine cuisine along with an enticing wine list. The contemporary American menu offers wine pairing recommendations next to every dish. The Napa style tasting room is an elegant space to explore the extensive wine options.
