There's More to Orlando than Theme Parks.
Orlando is known as the tourist capital of the world, so it's no surprise that Disney and Universal are probably what come to mind when you think of the "City Beautiful." But what about all of us locals who need another outlet to escape the daily hustle and bustle? The answer: Wine Bars. Great for a date or a night on the town with friends, "wine downs" are the perfect wind down.

Here are some of our favorites.
The Wine Room
Located in Winter Park, The Wine Room offers over 100 different wines, and therefore reasons, for you to pay them a visit. Swipe your wine card for a sip or a glass and taste your way through the space. Check out some of their selection here - Menu!
Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant
The Illinois-based chain is definitely not your typical restaurant. The hot-spot serves up house-labeled wine, gives you access to an all-inclusive wine club and organizes Southern California wine trips hosted by Cooper's Hawk founder, Tim McEnery. Each Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant location also features a Napa-Style tasting room and gift store to give guests an authentic experience. Take a look at their extensive list here - Menu!
Vines Grille & Wine Bar
The Restaurant Row favorite pairs sophistication with a good time for a winning combination. The upscale atmosphere is offset by the upbeat live music to create a welcoming feel. Their considerably large wine list includes over 650 selections from small boutiques to top producers from around the world. Their wine collection is ever-changing so they don't list their full menu online but you can find out more about what they stock here - Wine List!
Carmel Kitchen and Wine Bar
Another chain that's anything but ordinary. You can "orchestrate" your experience right from your table using their MenuPad technology by customizing and pacing your meal from start to finish. The MenuPad also provides detailed menu descriptions along with their suggested wine pairing. See their full wine list here - Menu!
Eola Wine Company
With two prime locations, one Downtown and one in Winter Park, you have double the chances to enjoy this chill spot. The inviting space offers light fare and wine varieties by the glass, flight or bottle. See their menu here - Menu! *Update on locations, Winter Park location has been taken over by The Parkview (See Below)
A wide array of tapas-style dishes offered in a colorful restaurant with a full bar & patio tables. See their menu - Menu!

Intimate wine bar setting specializing in unique wines by the glass and flights, unrivalled craft brews, and fresh, delectable fare. Raving review/write-up from Orlando Date Night - Parkview
