Below is a list of 21 restaurants and bars in Montreal to take your favourite person — partner, best friend, mother, lover — on a wine date.\nEach location offers a unique menu and atmosphere.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nYou don't have to look too hard to find a good spot to grab a glass of wine in Montreal. I'm pretty sure you could throw a stone from wherever you may be standing and hit a restaurant. But if you're looking to imbibe somewhere unique, and trust your taste buds to some of Canada's best sommeliers, then it's Montreal's wine and resto-bars that you should focus on.\nQuebecers are the biggest alcohol consumers in Canada and as of last year, we spent the second-highest sales value of wine, coming in only behind Ontario. Considering our vast population difference, suffice it to say Quebec loves its wine.\nMontreal is home to some of the best wine bars and menus worldwide, be it whites, reds, oranges or the ever-growing popularity of bio and natural producers.\nWith the SAQ's stronghold on limited wine choices, restaurants have stepped up their game to include private imports you can't buy in a store and smaller producers that are difficult to find most anywhere.\nFrom chic upscale bars to neighbourhood haunts, Montreal covers every base of decor and palate driven focus.\nNext time you're in the mood to spend a little extra time sipping some of the best vintages, check out one of these 21 Montreal spots.\nSignorvinoMTL\nView this post on Instagram FYI @mtlfoodsnob gives our #food two thumbs up!

The list is small and relies on imported natural, bio, agro-biological and/or certified organic wines.\nCheck out the website!\nPullman\nView this post on Instagram There is another “WestCoast” we don’t talk about much: Baja California, Mexico 🇲🇽. And other than having some of the best landscapes (also bars, food, restaurants, people), it’s where some of the most interesting wines in the Americas come from. In the picture: Bichi Listán 2016 from Tecate, Mexico, made of 120-150 years old Mission (País or Listán Negro) vines. I’m already a big fan of every single wine made of this grape variety but this one is especially expressive. Light and juicy, tart red fruits and distinctive to Mission, beautiful animal undernotes (some leather, cured spicy meat) in the background. Just INSANE. But make sure to drink fast, oxidizes in a blink. #mission #pais #listan #bichi #bichiwines #bajacalifornia #mexicanwine #tecate #vinnature #naturalwine #nosulphites A post shared by Can Turkmenoglu (@can.turkmenoglu) on Oct 1, 2019 at 9:24am PDT\nWhere: 3424 Ave. du Parc\nPullman is all about wine, from its extravagant wine glass chandelier to over 500 bottles in its renowned cellar.

We had so many amazing bottles (maybe too many😏) that I’m sure I’ll speak more on later, but this one at @vinpapillon is definitely at the top. @andersfrederiksteen #letseattheworldwewanttolivein made me a smiling fool who kept saying things like “well, if everything in the world tasted like this, I would be in a heap of trouble” or “cherry soda WISHES it could be this good” and other nonsense. Keep an eye out for this basic-looking label (yes, that is the front) filled with an exhilarating and anything-but-basic VDF. . . . . #comebackiloveyou #anderfrederiksteen #naturalwine #naturalelement #drinkmontreallofit #vinpapillon #bestwinelist #vdf #yesispilledonthatwhitetee A post shared by Little Bell (@littlebellwithlove) on Sep 8, 2018 at 4:43pm PDT\nWhere: 2519 Rue Notre-Dame O.\nAnother resto to add to the Joe Beef group, Vin Papillon is a lesson in patience.
