It’s a welcome sight to see Los Angeles’s wine bars return. The city is home to fantastic wine bars staffed by experts eager to introduce both casual sippers and serious oenophiles to new and rare varietals. Head to these destinations for an immersive (though often still casual) experience, from sampling a locally-grown California blend to sipping something more unexpected from an emerging vineyard in France. While LA might not be an international destination for high-end bottles (though Beverly Hills certainly has that aspect), its wine scene is propelled by passionate fans of the grape. Here now are 16 essential wine bars in Los Angeles.
