Best Dallas Wine Bars

Where to sip wine in a Texas beer town.


Published:

Dallas is a beer town, plain and simple. But over the past few years, this metropolis has seen a cluster of wine bars pop up in neighborhoods located just outside of the downtown area, causing Texans to put down their longnecks in favor of Malbecs and Chardonnays. Here are some of our favorites.

The Alcove

Tucked beneath a sprawling apartment complex in the city’s trendy Uptown district, this cozy lounge eschews the stereotypical upper-crust feel of some wine bars by specializing in affordable and under-theradar bottlings from across the globe. Wine rookies and connoisseurs alike can sip selections on a comfy couch inside or snag a table on the pet-friendly patio—both are equipped with free Wi-Fi.

Cork

Consider this sleek, innovative establishment the next generation of wine bars. Instead of ordering a glass from a waiter, guests swipe a prepaid card and sample tastings from a rotating selection of 48 wines via a computer touch screen and pour system. Once you find your favorite, purchase a bottle from the extensive retail shop, which keeps 350 bottles in stock.

When brothers Brooks and Bradley Anderson aren’t at their law firm, Anderson & Anderson, LLP, they’re fulfilling their dreams as sommeliers at their easygoing “wine pub,” which features small-production bottles from around the world. Order a sip along with a charcuterie plate featuring meats and cheeses from local farms, or purchase and take home a bottle priced from $20–$500.

Vino 100

Carrying affordable, quality wines is this bar-retail shop’s specialty—it always has at least 100 bottles at $25 or less in stock. And don’t worry about any unexpected surprises when you get home. Every bottle has been ranked using the shop’s Vino 100 Wine Barometer, which rates each selection on its taste and body.
