Best Local Wine Bars

Wine lovers rejoice! St. Pete/Clearwater isn’t just a beer-lovers’ paradise. While St. Pete/Clearwater is known for its thriving craft beer scene (aka the Gulp Coast) with 40+ breweries in the area, wine is having its moment in the destination with a plethora of new wine bar concepts popping up… and they’re not just for wine lovers! 

1 Wine Knot, St. Pete

Wine Knot

This upbeat wine bar and gift shop is a charming neighborhood spot with a beachy vibe. You’ll find a menu of 200+ wines of every variety available by the bottle or glass (even the pricey ones) and a sizeable beer, cider and malternative list.

2 Lolita's Wine Market, St. Pete

Lolita's Wine Market

Named after Chef Alex and wife Kelly’s adopted Golden Retriever, Lola (Lolita when she’s sassy), this wine shop-meets-coffee shop quickly became a local favorite for its incredible boutique wine selection and create-your-own charcuterie. Not a wine lover? Don't worry! Choose from a few local brews, too, plus food items to munch on. Take your wine to go or sit and relax for awhile. Be sure to check out their second concept, Sophia’s Cucina + Enoteca -- the lasagna is to die for!
