They say a glass of wine or two a day is good for you...not really sure who "they" are but let's trust them on this one. The Native's have compiled a list of their favorite places to grab a glass of wine around The City of Brotherly Love!
Address: 1525 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125
Ian: "Although craft beers and breweries dominate Fishtown, this spot is lobbying for Fishtown to be a hot spot for wine connoisseurs. Although I lean towards Reds vs. white wine, they have a huge selection whether you’re looking for a nice Cab or a sweet Riesling."
Address: 2005 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Cam: "Tria Taproom in Rittenhouse Square has an amazing beer menu with 12 taps from locals to around the world. Very helpful staff and user-friendly menu displayed on a tablet which goes into detail about each tap. Snacks, flatbreads and cheeses plates to pair perfectly with your brew."
Address: 105 S 13th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107
Ian: "When I think of places that exist solely for the wine aficionados, Jamonera is the first to come to mind. They devote all their energy into discovering, selecting, and presenting a killer wine selection that has something for everyone. Whether you’re a self-proclaimed Sommelier or the casual wine drinker, Jamonera is the spot."
Address: 130 S 18th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Jill: "The Love opened in early 2018, ever since there has been a lot of buzz around this restaurant, and I finally got the opportunity to go! The restaurant is the perfect combination of upscale without having to ditch your jeans. As soon as you sit down, listen to your waiter or waitress - they know the menu well and made fantastic recommendations based on our preferences."
Address: 114 S 20th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Jill: "Charming tapas restaurant! Great for couples that love wine and are willing to share plates. This is a cozy little restaurant in the heart of center city. Highly recommend the arugula salad with fried goat cheese and figs, green beans, chicken skewers (with grapes) and the paella. For the more daring couples... give the octopus a try too!"
Address: 114 S 13th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107
Ian: "On the same street as Jamonera and a spin-off of Zavino – wine crawl anyone? – Tredici has a modern and open atmosphere. It has a large wine selection that can get pretty intimidating, but they know their shit so just ask."
Address: 1709 E Passyunk Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19148
Mollie: "Most people think of dinner when they hear 'tapas', but their tapas-style brunch is literally one of the best brunches I've ever had. It's a great place to go with a group of people and order one of everything to share!"
Address: 2303 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130
Ian: "If you find yourself in Fairmount, stop by London Grill’s Paris Wine Bar. What’s the big attraction here? Wine On Tap. It’s not too often you see wine bars with wine on tap. They have a great selection and cool European vibes. Great for meeting a group for wine and apps, or a casual date."
