At the vivacious Bolero Tapas Bar & Spanish Grill, the clatter of passing plates competes with the chatter of diners as they enjoy their multicourse meals. Executive Chef Curtis Bramlett and second-in-command Justin Ward constantly enhance the menu with weekly specials, adding to the diversity of flavors already found among the tapas. The small servings are meant to be divided and discussed, much like the drawings that Rembrandt produced on flimsy paper. The golden-fried goat cheese drizzled with tupelo honey earned laurels from the Oklahoma Gazette, which also called the caramel flan “heavenly.”
Dark plank flooring supports the warm browns of the restaurant, where floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light and fresh air to imbue the indoor space. At rows of outdoor tables, patrons can sit beneath the starlight to arrange their tapas plates in shapes that mimic constellations.
A hearth oven frames brightly in the kitchen of every Naples Flatbread & Wine Bar, roasting gourmet flatbreads to perfection. Cooks pile the house-made crusts with premium toppings before slipping them in, creating signature offerings like the creamy lobster thermidor or the Pietro, which pairs goat cheese and prosciutto with sweeter components such as black mission figs. Flatbreads aren't the only specialty, though?the kitchen also turns out fire-roasted chicken wings, baked? pastas, and entrees such as slow-braised osso bucco. An eclectic selection of beers and more than 30 wines bring out the flavors of the menu.

Canadian River Vineyards and Winery lies along Route 77, extending toward the banks of the Canadian River in rolling rows of vines and picturesque fields. The setting incites the urge to celebrate, and the owners often do so. They host elegant weddings and parties, as well as less formal events such as movies in the vineyard, game night, and bonfires. Amongst all the shindigs they throw, the Annual Grape Stomp Festival regularly proves the most popular. Of course, people visit just as often to tour the scenic grounds and taste the wine, which comes in varieties such as Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Oklahoma Riesling.
Learn To Brew was created by a professional brewer in an effort to provide patrons with a one-stop-shop for supplies, hands-on classes, and how-to videos for crafting beer and wine. In addition to taps and kegerators for homes or businesses, staff members stock ingredients such as hops, malts, and yeasts. In their classes, they cover everything from balancing acids for wine to fermenting honey for mead.
The owners of Tidal School Winery and Vineyard chose a fitting venue for educating the public about their selection of European-style and Oklahoma sweet wines—an 8,000-square-foot historic schoolhouse. Originally built in the 1920s to educate John D. Rockefeller’s workforce, the building now houses a banquet hall and tasting room where visitors can swirl, sip, and see who can spit take the farthest with the vineyard’s wines. Further entertaining the senses, the winery hosts monthly musical events that are free to the public and spotlight Oklahoma-based bands.
