A few glasses of wine can always get a party started–but at many venues around the country, wine is the star of the show. Here are event venues we love that will impress even the most discerning vinophiles.
Chicago: City Winery Chicago
Whether you sit out in the “wine garden” or in the barrel room surrounded by aging wine, City Winery knows their stuff–wine is actually made on-site.
Las Vegas: Vintner Grill
This Las Vegas venue has a wine list more than 250 bottles deep, representing 10 countries–and with excellent Mediterranean fare to accompany it.
New York: Alimentari & Vineria
This fabulous Italian market and restaurant, one of the most talked-about restaurants of 2012, is an equally fabulous place to drink wine, with a list that ventures all over the regions of Italy.
Northern California: Domenico Winery
Down on the Peninsula in San Carlos, a bit south of San Francisco, Domenico Winery sources California grapes to make wine, from Napa, Sonoma, Santa Cruz, and more.
