Last updated: January 14, 2010

Top 10 Best Wine Lists presents the top 10 restaurant wine lists in the city. Take your palate on a vacation and treat your tongue to some of the finest vintages in the world!



La Terrazza
La Terrazza’s wine list encompasses all of the major vineyard regions in the world, all of which can be enjoyed in the ambient surrounds.

Salt Tasting Room
Sample both well and lesser-known vintages paired with delectable meats and cheeses at Salt Tasting Room, which offers an enjoyable, cool and casual atmosphere.

Araxi in Whistler
Araxi’s wine cellar is filled with a mind-boggling 12,000 bottles, and their friendly sommelier is positively psychic when is comes to selecting what will soon be your new favourite vintage.

Uva Wine Bar
Located in the lobby of the Moda Hotel, Uva has some truly unique selections on their wine list, like the botrytis affected Monchhof Trockenbeerenauslese.

C Restaurant
C’s wine list is more like a short novel, and includes local choices of local sakes, rieslings, sauternes, chardonnays, pinot noirs and ports.

CRU Restaurant
Cru offers a massive selection of 50-odd wines by the glass, and stocks several hundred more varieties in their cellar. They also have daily tasting flights.

More a bar than a restaurant, Elixir welcomes both singles and groups with VIP-like service. Ask your server for the best wine pairings - you won’t be disappointed.

Il Caminetto Di Umberta at Whistler
Il Caminetto oozes romance, and it becomes abundantly clear why Tuscany is perhaps Italy’s most legendary region. The wine list focuses mostly on Tuscan reds, but there are plenty of other options as well.

With a name like Bacchus, who is the Roman god of wine, it’s not surprising this is where you’ll find one of Vancouver’s best selections of the grape-based drink. In fact, the Liberator himself presides over the attractive room.

The Shore Club
The Shore Club is known for its excellent location and impeccable service, and the wine list represents their dedication to the finest details.
