Voted Best Wine Menu by Columbia Metropolitan magazine, Gervais & Vine grape-floods palates with more than 40 wines by the glass, pairing each with a wide menu of Spanish-style tapas. The Mediterranean-inspired culinary creations change regularly, but you might snack on a dish of warm brie with mango chutney ($9), hummus and pita chips ($6), or Greek pizza ($7.75). Social carnivores can pass around platters of pork kebabs with gorgonzola fondue, petite filet mignon with feta and balsamic reduction, or grilled shrimp with sun-dried tomato pesto—scrubbing their palates clean between bites with the suds of craft beers and top-shelf spirits.
For gastronomers looking to broaden their understanding of vino without resorting to unhelpful orbital telescopes, Gervais & Vine’s periodic wine-tasting session will teach them all about rare wines from around the world, their complementary cuisines, and their secret extreme sport aspirations. An elegant, intimate dining room, lively bar, and charming patio seat give gourmands multiple vantage points for people watching and for tackling waiters in slow motion.
Columbia Metropolitan magazine awarded Gervais & Vine Columbia's Best Wine Menu 2010. More than 60 [TripAdvisors] give it an average of four owl eyes.
- Gervais and Vine is consistently wonderful. Best tapas in town. Love the shrimp with aioli and scallops with three sauces. Gambas is out of this world. – ColumbiaSCTraveler, TripAdvisor

Gervais & Vine
Year after year, publications such as Columbia Metropolitan, Free Times and The State have lauded Gervais & Vine's wine list, ambiance, and cuisine. G&V has repeatedly received awards for Columbia's best wine list and best place for a first date. What earned it the distinction is simple: globe-spanning variety. Its menu hosts more than 40 wines by the glass, which complement the Mediterranean-inspired food of head chef Jason Holowacz.
When crafting his entrees, Holowacz focuses on pairing. Dishes range from the Spanish flavors of grilled shrimp to Italian favorites such as pizza with goat cheese and herb-infused olive oil, allowing guests to experiment with their white or red selections. For pointers, periodic winemaker dinners and wine tastings cover different varietals and their best edible matches. And while guests sip and sup, inside or on the outdoor patio, Gervais & Vine entertains their ears every Wednesday or Thursday night with live jazz.
