9 Best Wine Bars in New Orleans By Rachel Hebert | April 29, 2016

What better way to pair a delicious New Orleans dish than with a glass of scrumptious wine?  And you’ve got plenty of options since the city’s bars are as diverse as the vino they serve. While some cater to orthodox winos, other bars like Bacchanal Wine in the Bywater serve up a hipster’s paradise of unconventional vintages in a backyard setting. If you’d rather a fine dining experience, then Grapevine Bar & Bistro in the French Quarter is a hidden gem that locals frequent on weeknights and special occasions alike.

Whether you choose the well-beaten path or the road less traveled, wine bars offer a spirited way to explore a city. So, get your taste buds ready because you are in for a treat! Here’s a list of spots to get you started.
