The power of good wine and good company cannot be overstated, and when the two come together, everything else seems to fade away. So with that in mind, here are some of the best spots for wine and charcuterie around Vancouver to cozy up in.

La Fabrique St-George

Doubling as one of the only wineries in the city, La Fabrique is one of our fave go-to spots for a glass of satisfying vino no matter the season. In the summer, the patio makes the perfect spot to unwind with a tasting flight in hand, and during the colder months, the minimally designed space offers a cozy fireplace and nook to curl up in.

Where: 7 East 7th Avenue

Is That French

This intimate spot is tucked away in Gastown’s Blood Alley, serving a rotating menu of freshly shucked oysters and BC wine. A hidden gem if there ever was one – Is That French offers guests a cozy, warm ambiance and stunning seafood plates that are almost too beautiful to eat. In addition to their regular wine menu, they also have weekly wine flights, so if you’re unsure of what to sample first, this is a great place to start!

Where: 45 Blood Alley Square

Serving “innovative, on-the-moment dinner and snacks,” Bar Gobo is not only Michelin-recognized, but home to everything from reserve bottles to aromatized wine. And for the non-wine drinker, there are a few beers and ciders, cocktails, and whiskeys to choose from.

Where: 237 Union Street

The Stable House Bistro

This neighbourhood bistro and wine bar is by far one of our favourite spots on the list, complete with a cozy covered patio and a larger outdoor seating area (courtesy of the adjacent South Granville Plaza West) adorned in fairy lights. Situated in South Granville on West 13th, the intimate spot is the perfect place to pop in for a glass or two and some fresh, inventive bites.

Where: 1520 West 13th Avenue

As far as wine bars in Vancouver go, Grapes & Soda has some amazing options by way of snack boards and charcuterie. And while we don’t typically frequent wine bars for the food necessarily, we definitely wouldn’t pass up on the Squash Miso Tonkotsu Ramen.

The menu at Dachi changes from day to day, which makes for a thoroughly exciting and rewarding dining experience every time you go. All of their ingredients are sourced from independent, local farmers – which means every dish is a unique creation. Come for the wine and sake, and stay for the warm meals and vibes.

Where: 2297 East Hastings Street

Novo Pizzeria & Wine Bar

With happy hour from 2 to 5 p.m. every day, Novo is a great pick if you’re heading out on an emptier stomach. Their wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, charcuterie plates, pastas, Italian cocktails, and of course, a mix of Italian reds and whites make for an excellent date idea or casual catch-up with friends.

Where: 2118 Burrard Street

The Wine Bar at Provence Marinaside

Last but not least, we have the Wine Bar at Provence Marinaside. With happy hour specials, wine-by-the-glass, and Provencal-inspired seafood and tapas, this is a great spot to check out while on a walk around False Creek. Plus, they have weekly jazz nights every Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m.

Where: 1167 Marinaside Crescent

And that’s a wrap on some of the best wine bars in Vancouver! We hope this list inspires you to make some resos or opt for a spontaneous visit sometime soon.
