So you like to drink wine. Who doesn’t? You probably have your favorite wine bars, favorite wine shops, favorite happy hours. But where do you go when you want to go wine tasting?

Miami isn’t Sonoma or Napa. We’re not even Walla Walla. But even in Miami, there are places to sit, sip and compare new tastes with your favorites.



Here’s where to go in Miami when you want to go wine tasting.

You don’t even need a reservation to try the wines at Cooper’s Hawk – tastings are walk-in only. There are three menus: a sweet menu and a variety menu, both $7, and a luxe tasting for $12. You try eight Cooper’s Hawk wines with either tasting.

Cooper’s Hawk Doral: 3585 Northwest 83rd Ave., Doral; also at 10310 Pines Blvd, Pembroke Pines.

Schnebly Redland’s Winery

The good news: You can go wine tasting in the Redland! The bad news: The wine isn’t made from grapes! If you’re the bold sort, you can try wines made from mangos, lychees, avocados and other unlikely fruit.
