Large Wine Selections - Miami Restaurants

For some restaurants, wine selections are an afterthought. For others, wine is just as important as food. At these six hot spots, wine lovers will find a treasure trove of tasty vino

Costa Med

Dish Miami readers know that Costa Med is the go-to spot for Mediterranean food. But did you know that Costa Med also boasts an impressive wine list? Enjoy one of Key Biscayne’s best wine selections at this intimate eatery, where guests can savor rare finds while dining on steak tartare, seared scallops, lobster ravioli, and veal chop. As you’d expect, the wine list leans on European selections, but there’s something for everyone.

El Carajo

Tucked away behind an unassuming gas station in Coconut Grove lies El Carajo, a local gem offering a taste of authentic Spanish culture. Their extensive wine list of over 2000 bottles focus on Spanish varietals, with options ranging from classic Riojas to lesser-known regional discoveries. 

Pair your glass or bottle with a selection of traditional Spanish tapas, like fried chickpeas, meatballs, white anchovies, paella, and more. The menu is simple yet flavorful – and most importantly – budget-friendly. Visit on your own, round up some friends, or bring a date; this place is great for any occasion. 

El Carajo is located at 2465 SW 17th Ave, Miami, FL 33145. For more information, visit their official website

Margot Natural Wine Bar

Nestled in the heart of Downtown Miami’s famous Flagler Street, Margot Natural Wine Bar invites you on a journey of exploration for the senses. This airy haven boasts a carefully curated selection of dozens of natural wines, each expressing unique terroir and craftsmanship.

Food-wise, the menu is small but mighty, with bites like smashed English pea and tahini, salmon crudo, grilled cheese sandwiches, and tinned fish. Beers and specialty drinks are also available if you want to switch things up. Whether you’re a seasoned wine connoisseur or simply curious to explore, Margot offers an unforgettable experience.

Margot Natural Wine Bar is located at 21 SE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33131. For more information, visit their official website.

RED South Beach

When a wine list is recognized by Wine Spectator, you know you’re in for a treat. RED South Beach has wowed diners for years, delivering an unmatched dining experience. A big reason for its longevity: quality AND quantity. The South of Fifth steakhouse not only cooks up succulent steaks galore but also serves up a constantly rotating wine list with selections from across the globe. It’ll take multiple visits to make a dent in the menu, and no two visits are alike except in quality. 

Toscana Divino

Good luck finding a better Brickell wine list than the one at Toscana Divino in Brickell. There are bottles upon bottles upon bottles available for your enjoyment. While Toscana Divino’s wine list can be intimidating – especially for newbies – the restaurant’s stellar service will help you find the perfect selection. 

As you’ve likely guessed, there is a ton of Italian wines on the list, but other countries are well-represented throughout, too. You can easily spend your whole day here just drinking wine… yet you should definitely get some food as well. Some highlights: the octopus puttanesca, the truffle carbonara and the mushroom risotto. 

Vinya Table

Uncork a world of possibilities at Vinya Table in Coral Gables. This stylish wine bar and shop offers a carefully curated selection of bottles from around the globe, catering to both novice and discerning palates. Whether you’re seeking a classic Bordeaux or a hidden gem from a boutique winery, their knowledgeable staff is always happy to guide you.

Beyond the vino, Vinya boasts a delectable menu of small plates and tapas designed to perfectly complement your chosen sip, including patatas bravas, morcilla spring rolls, bacon-wrapped dates, and smoked burrata. Pro tip: Pop in during the early afternoon for a super generous happy hour.

Vinya Table is located at 266 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, FL 33134. For more information, visit their official website
