Best wine bars in Vancouver to check out at least once

Oct 18 2021, 9:32 pm

While it may be wine-o-clock any time of year, now that we’re entering the cozy season, it feels like it’s time to linger over a glass of red with good friends.

So while patio season is on its way out and we may no longer be enjoying chilled whites on a sun-dappled deck, we’re still spoiled for choice when it comes to wine options.

Our list of favourite wine bars has even doubled in recent years because new and incredible places are always opening up. Here are the city’s best wine bars worth checking out.

La Fabrique St-George

Build your own market-style charcuterie board and sip on hyper-local wines made just steps away from where you sip. This winery, lounge, and market even have live music twice a week.
