Standout by the Glass

9 Restaurants with Standout By-the-Glass Selections

A fresh way to explore world-class wine lists

 Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards, June 2018

Wine lovers often gravitate to bottles when dining out. But if a restaurant has a strong selection, by-the-glass pours are an exciting way to discover something new or sample a trophy bottle without sampling the full price. These nine Wine Spectator Restaurant Award winners go above and beyond with by-the-glass lists that excel in diversity, value, quantity, or all three. Enjoy exceptional by-the-glass selections at these dining destinations across the country.

Selections of wines by the glass can change frequently, so check with the restaurant for availability of specific labels.
