Thanks to twice-monthly trainings, the bartenders at D'Vine Wine Bar can give background on the taste and terroir of the more than 60 wines they pour, according to Cleveland Magazine. Visitors sip those varietals—or, alternatively, beer or craft cocktails—while seated beneath antique chandeliers, pairing their selections with shareable plates of artisanal cheese and charcuterie. Located in downtown Cleveland's historic Warehouse District, the spot offers a cozy ambiance that's complimented by a crackling fireplace.
Drinkers can get their fill of fine, fermented libations at The Barrel Room, where guests meet more than 20 wines by the glass, an assortment of imported and domestic beers, and noshables that soak up the stomach's liquidy contents to make room for more. A sip of Norton malbec will excite tongues with a mildly berryish, tongue-smoothening Argentine flavor ($5), and Australia's Red Bank pinot grigio entices nostrils with floral, herbal, and pear notes ($7) while friending palates with its fruity mouthtaste. Malted options include Dogfish Head's 90-Minute IPA ($6.50) and Delirium Tremens, a Belgian pale ale that's often prescribed by non-licensed psychiatrists as a remedy for madness ($6). Three-part wine flights are available every night in red- or white-hued trios ($8–$10).
