From intimate wine bars to an Italian food hall 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.

La Centrale Enoteca

Located on the third floor of the Italian food hall at Brickell City Centre, La Centrale’s Enoteca boasts 4,000 bottles of wine with 80 percent of them hailing from Italy. With dramatic vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams and wine barrels, the design was inspired by the enotecas of Tuscany. Sample a wine flight from the Napatech system during your visit and then take your favorite bottle home with you. Don’t leave before you enjoy a meal at one of their second floor restaurants, Carne, Pesce or Stagionale.

Lagniappe

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 their indoor shop and then grab a table in the sprawling outdoor patio. They also boast 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.

Cibo Wine Bar

Located on Miracle Mile, Cibo Wine Bar in Coral Gables is a cozy destination for a glass of wine (or a bottle!). Sporting stone and glass walls, rustic wooden finishes and butcher block tables, you’ll enjoy exquisite, rare wines from every corner of the world that pair nicely with their full menu of pizza, pasta and light bites, like Italian cheeses, charcuterie and beef carpaccio.

Uvaggio

Tucked amidst the shops and restaurants along enchanting Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, this intimate, dimly-lit spot is known for its impressive menu of small-production wines. Open in the evenings, Uvaggio invites guests to listen to live music, find their new favorite vintage and “taste backwards” – choosing wine based on its aromas, flavors and textures, and then pairing their meal with it.

Schnebly Redlands Winery & Brewery

Schnebly Redlands 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, bring your own food, 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.

Wine Vault

A Midtown staple with a wide variety of wines to choose from, the Wine Vault is especially popular around happy hour. Order artichoke hearts, marinated olives, hummus and a prosciutto flatbread to pair with your wine of choice by the glass or bottle. It attracts young professionals and Midtown locals for an upbeat and inviting atmosphere.
