Vines Grille & Wine Bar

Ideal for music lovers, Vines Grille & Wine Bar in Orlando Florida is a terrific place to enjoy a glass of pinot noir while enjoying live jazz music, which plays every night at the restaurant.

VINIA Wine & Kitchen

Winter Park, FL 32789

This couple-owned wine bar and restaurant is tucked away in Hannibal Square, not far from Park Avenue. Scratch-made tapas and entrees compliment the impressive European wine selection, while cozy booths and live music on Thursdays create the ideal date night atmosphere.

The dessert flight is one of our favorite menu options. We highly recommend you upgrade it to include the dessert wine flight pairing, too.

The Wine Room

270 S. Park Ave.
Winter Park, FL 32789

An area favorite, The Wine Room features more than 156 hand-selected wines available to sample via DIY wine dispensing machines. With a wine debit card that you add whatever denomination you choose to, you'll sip your way around The Wine Room via one, two-and-a-half or five-ounce pour sizes, priced accordingly. Hold on to your card because it’s reusable and trust me, you’ll be back to reuse it.

The Parkview

136 S. Park Ave.
Winter Park, FL 32789

Located in the heart of Winter Park on Park Avenue, The Parkview is a wine bar with a relaxed atmosphere and a great food selection to go along with its vast wine list. Go there for brunch (mimosa flights!), stop in for an after-work flight of wine or enjoy a full dinner. This place has it all!

Spill

1196 Tree Swallow Drive, Ste. 1314
Winter Springs, FL 32708

Spill is a small spot in Winter Springs that has a vast list of wines to choose from along with an artisanal cheese platter that is so delicious. They also serve wine cocktails—like sangria and prosecco split.

It’s a wine bar started by locals and made to have that “local feel” to it.

The Attic Door

8 W. Plant St.
Winter Garden, FL 34787

Self-proclaimed as the “swankiest little wine bar and live music venue,” The Attic Door looks just like a normal lounge bar from the outside but once inside it's classy meets whimsical. The lounge is filled with mixed and matched chairs, sofas and leather couches, along with unique pieces of décor and draperies hung everywhere.

Add to that live entertainment and you've got the perfect ambience for a great date night.

Wine Bar George

1610 E Buena Vista Dr,
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

It's hard to believe that one of Orlando's best wine bars is at Walt Disney World – Disney Springs to be exact. Imagine being able to order 1 oz of any wine on the menu, of which there are 140 wines. Each item on the food menu is meant to pair beautifully with a wide variety of wines.

That's what awaits at Wine Bar George.

Just 10 minutes from Walt Disney World is a great local wine bar. Formosa Winery Tasting House is like escaping to a small vineyard. Grapes that are grown on property here are made into delightful, fruity Florida wines. You can sample these unique Florida wines or purchase them by the bottle.

And if you prefer more traditional, old world wine there are wine tasting dispensers that feature standard varietals. Buy a card and sample as many ounces as you like. Or enjoy one of the many special wine cocktails and mimosas, as well as a few craft beers on draft.

Sharable plates, regular entrees, made-from-scratch desserts, and brunch all day every day are available. So take a seat, order up some nibbles, and relax.

We experienced the massive meat and cheese board, some of the holiday specials, as well as two desserts during a hosted experience, and loved every morsel. This hidden gem wine bar should be on your list whether you're a local or visiting Orlando.

Two locations – Sanford, FL and Avalon Park, FL

Brix & Mortar is an urban winery with two locations in the Orlando area, each featuring a modern bar and lounge serving light fare. “Brix” is a measure of sweetness in grapes. With that in mind, they seek grapes with a variety of flavor profiles from the best growing regions in the country and bring the juice home to make it local to Orlando.

Their portfolio of more than a dozen wines are made locally to suit local tastes, whether you prefer sweet or dry, light or bold. The Sanford location is especially cozy during the holiday season.
