Wind down with half-priced wine specials in Edmonton

Why wine? Why not? Not only does a glass of vino have proven health benefits (antioxidants for the win!), but it’s also enjoyable with a snack, meal or on its own. These restaurants offer wine specials, often discounting glasses or even bottles by up to half of the normal price tag. What a fantastic way to enjoy an old favourite or discover a new one.

Settle into one of their comfy banquet booths and order a glass or bottle of vino just for you – all bottles and glasses of house wines are discounted by half on Wednesdays. They offer a good stock of North American wines, as well as vinos from Argentina, Australia, Germany, New Zealand, France and Italy – all helpfully broken down by country of origin on the wine list. You can sip from a six or nine-ounce glass, or partake in a bottle (no judgement!)

El Cortez Tequila Bar and Kitchen

8230 Gateway Blvd NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 4B2

This Mexican restaurant and tequila bar is known more for their ample stock of agave and tequila than its wine list, but don’t overlook it when it comes to vino – they have a solid list.

Lazia Restaurant

113A-10200 102 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0V1

This elegant fusion restaurant has a wonderful selection of vino, all blind-tasted and chosen by the owner and staff (they brown paper-bagged each bottle before tasting!).

On Thursdays, they hold Wine-Down Thursdays, where you can receive $10 off a bottle of wine.

The Bothy Wine & Whiskey Bar

5482 Calgary Trail NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 4J8

This Scottish wine and whisky pub, located on the south side of the city, may be known more for its whisky, but it does have a lovely wine list, with about 20 wines offered by the glass.
