It's hard to imagine that there's a libation out there that Crown doesn't carry. With a selection that spans vineyards, distilleries, and breweries from around the world, the bottles lining each location come from both small, artisan makers and those universally famed for their grapes or techniques. Home mixologists can cull inspiration for cocktails from a selection of top-shelf-brand mixers or pair their tipple of choice with gourmet snacks, from bush-pepper macadamia nuts to dirty martini party dip. But tastings may be the most distinctive thing about Crown Wine & Spirits. Whether customers stop in to try each location's daily offerings of wine or spirits—or for special tastings that cover dozens of wines, bourbons or beers—Crown's staff makes it easy to find a new favorite or to make up to your tongue for forgetting so many of its birthdays.

Chef Esmeralda unites her proud Mediterranean heritage with American touches in each tapas dish her kitchen creates. Iberico Spanish-style cured ham, bruschettas, and fresh seafood—as well as larger entrees—give guests a taste of faraway cuisines as they enjoy their meals amid the trattoria’s wine-colored walls or on the patio. To complement these dishes, Esmeralda’s team of wine experts curates a menu of fine and rare champagnes and global varietals. Bartenders craft sweet sangria and margaritas, and on select nights, hookah smoke twirls upward, diffusing the soft light from the eatery’s crystalline chandeliers.

It took the owners of Vino DeSantis six months to find the right setting to host their vino emporium. Their diligence paid off. Today, their Coral Springs location houses more than 1,200 different varieties in a combination shop and tasting room lit by a warm, incandescent glow. The shop is also home to an Enomatic wine system, a space-age wine-delivery device that can hold 72 bottles of wine and automatically dispense 1-, 2-, or 4-ounce servings of that day’s offerings. With no more machines to install or fixtures to set up, the staff is now free to build the community’s knowledge of wine during tastings augmented by complimentary cheeses, breads, and compliments.
