Montreal has long been known for its heady French vibe. But with a pulsing modern art scene, new-meets-old cityscape and multitude of young professionals, the Canadian locale takes on a hip yet polished setting that\u2019s all its own.\r\n\r\nA similar sensation permeates the city\u2019s wine scene, which pushes beyond the classics with colorful, contemporary beverage programs based on Europe\u2019s top natural, biodynamic and organic examples. And with the international Raw Wine fair holding its inaugural event here in 2018, Montreal has officially become a minimal-intervention wine haven. Read on for the best spots to sip.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhere to drink natural wine in Montreal\r\nLarrys\r\nOpen all day and past midnight, this is the tiny wine bar sibling of Boucherie Lawrence butcher shop and Lawrence restaurant next door. It\u2019s a casual neighborhood hangout, with by-the-glass offerings scrawled on chalkboards and tables squeezed tight together. Expect fresh finds from producers like N\u00e9gondos and Ch\u00e2teau M\u00e9rande.\r\nPullman\r\nEstablished in 2004 and three stories tall, Pullman is Montreal\u2019s stalwart natty wine venue. And with a rotation of 50 wines by the glass, 500-plus bottles and a glassware chandelier that commands attention, it\u2019s still a must-visit. Opt for a flight, and ask the staff to help choose small plates to match your sampling.\r\nVin Mon Lapin\r\nThis is the latest spawn of Joe Beef\u2019s empire. Come early: With around 30 seats, endless charm and a no-reservation policy, it fills up quickly. The sommelier, Vanya Filipovic, handles one of the\u00a0 most impressive natural lists in the city. While you may be there for the vin, don\u2019t pass on the produce-driven menu.\r\nRestaurant Candide\r\nOff the beaten path and housed in a former church built in 1861, this might be the city\u2019s best restaurant. A seasonal four-course menu is presented alongside a wine list of natural, biodynamic and organic pours. You\u2019ll want to drink everything, but the pairings option is worth it.\r\nCul-Sec, Cave & Canteen\r\nThanks to the Soci\u00e9t\u00e9 des Alcools du Qu\u00e9bec (SAQ), Quebec\u2019s liquor retail system, shopping for niche or small-production bottlings can be tricky. There are loopholes, however, and this hybrid wine bar and shop is one of them. Just order something to eat, and you\u2019re free to nab a natural or organic bottle to stay or go.
