When we think of grabbing a drink in Buffalo, the beverage that comes to mind is beer. This makes sense. We all know that Buffalo has quite the killer beer scene. I mean, it’s so good, we’ve got a whole district downtown dedicated to perfecting it. But, if beer isn’t your first choice of alcoholic beverage, we’re not here to judge. In fact we’re here to tell you that for all you wine lovers out there, WNY is full of wine bars to meet all your drinking pleasures.

These fancy little joints make for the perfect night out on the town. I think we could all agree that nothing compares to coming home from a 9-5, throwing on some sweats, and poppin’ open a  [insert your drink of choice] , but, we’d have to say this takes a close second. When we say wine bar, we really mean it, these places aren’t just your typical wine tasting experience. They’re bringing on flights, tasty eats, and bar atmosphere that is only expected in Buffalo. Are we speaking your language? Then you’ve come to the right place.
