It seems like every day is National something-or-other, but National Wine Day is one holiday we can really get behind. Whether you’re craving a cabernet or pining for pinot, raise a celebratory glass at one of the city’s grape wine bars. (Sorry.)
Wine Market Bistro
921 East Fort Avenue
If you’re not satisfied sipping on one of the 30+ wines by the glass at the bistro, you can pop over to the titular Wine Market attached and grab one of their 500 bottle options to enjoy with your meal.

There is absolutely nothing better than a glass of wine by the waterfront—and with menu categories like “Crisp,” “Juicy” and “Lush,” your sipping experience will feel positively sinful.

This Mount Vernon basement bar is known for its charcuterie boards, which make the perfect pairing plate for pretty much any vintage you choose to indulge in. Delicieux.
