Adesso Bistro

1906 Haro St, Vancouver, BC V6G 1H7

It’s almost impossible to have anything but a great time at Adesso. The service is attentive, the food portions are well-sized and the vibe is intimate, yet relaxed. When it’s warm out, take your glass of wine to the private patio. If the weather isn’t cooperating, your glass of riesling will taste just as good inside.

PHO Central Vietnamese Reastaurant

1161 Davie St, Vancouver, BC V6E 1N2

Pho Central's decor looks slightly futuristic with its neon lights and modern furniture. The Vietnamese food is reasonably priced and they always have an impressive selection of wine available.


781 Denman St, Vancouver, BC V6G 2L6

Forget about pizza and beer being the meal of champions. At Nook, meals get a classy upgrade with wine as the beverage of choice (although there’s still a decent selection of craft beer). Whether you order pasta or pizza, wine is the perfect companion to your meal.

Tavola Restaurant

1829 Robson St, Vancouver, BC V6G 1E4

It consistently ranks as one of the West End’s favourite restaurants, with Vancouverites abandoning their kitchens en masse to dine here. The wine list is divided into an extensive selection of bubbles and Italian and Pacific Northwest reds and whites. You can either ask your server for a recommendation or take part in one of their special events.

Espana Restaurant

1118 Denman St, Vancouver, BC V6G 2M8

It’s hardly a surprise that Spanish wines and sparklers dominate the wine list at Espana. All of Spain’s best-known wine-making regions are represented – all of which go great with Espana's extensive tapas menu. Snack on offering include artisan cheeses, crispy pork belly, padron peppers and cured meats.

The Blind Sparrow

751 Denman St, Vancouver, BC V6G 2L6

All you have to do at The Blind Sparrow is pull up a chair, scan the mainly-French wine list and enjoy a glass from a winery in one of France's famous grape-growing regions. Tip: wait until happy hour to save some serious cash.
