There are wine nights that involve sitting on the couch in sweats, but there are those that involve dressing up cute and sipping classy reds at a bar. This wine bar in Charlotte is perfect for the latter with its plush red couches and secret garden. The super chill ambiance makes for an adorable and fun outing so rally up your gals for a night of well, rallying.
Dilworth Tasting Room in Charlotte is a classy but spunky wine bar that emulates the whimsical style of 1940s Europe. The enoteca-inspired bar has a massive wall of low production, high-quality wines, so if you are an aspiring sommelier (or just a wine junkie in general), Dilworth is the place for you.
The inside houses iconic retro red couches, vintage European-esque seating and nearly 30 feet of mahogany, copper and steel bar — but that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Once spring gets here, the outdoor area is going to be your fave new spot because it's a magical and welcoming escape where you can let loose and share laughs with your crew.
The patio, aka "Charlotte's premier secret garden," has modern plant displays and twinkling string lights that surround a central Koi pond — because who doesn't love pretty fish?
Dilworth offers rare wines that rotate weekly. You can check out their Instagram to stay updated with current selections.
Save your appetite, because you can pair your wine with some of the best food in town. The menu features mouth-watering Europe-centric bites like burrata, niçoise, baby octopus bruschetta and of course, all the cheese plates you can dream of.
This place is seriously charcuterie heaven, offering custom boards with over 15 cheeses and meats to mix and match.
If you're a cheese fanatic, switch up wine Wednesday to wine Tuesday, because you get a free cheese board with your purchase of a wine flight ($20 - $25) every Tuesday.
Other deals include half-priced Pinot Noir bottles on Thursdays and featured wine specials on Mondays. Your wallet will thank you for shifting girls' night from the weekend to the week.
