Almost as popular these days as craft beer bars, wine bars are popping up throughout the Naples area. Some actually have “wine bar” in their names and truly specialize in pouring vino. All of them serve food pairings from simple noshes to full blown meals. C Level Wine Bar in Bonita Springs falls into this category as a true wine bar, and it was one of the first to open in the region.
Other listings you will find among these favorites are primarily restaurants, but restaurants that pay special, concerted attention to their wine cellars and wine lists. Many employ a knowledgeable sommelier to curate their lists and help customers with their pairings. These sommeliers select wines that complement the chef’s style of cooking. A couple of restaurants in this category include Angelina’s Ristorante and Sea Salt Naples. Both favor Italian vintages but stock wines from around the globe.
So whether you are a wine connoisseur or just getting your tongue whetted on the always intriguing world of wine, this list will guide you to the best you will find in Naples and environs. Many of the wine bars and restaurants host special winemaker and tasting events, particularly in the winter season.
