Top 5 Wine Bars Aspen

There’s a reason that the line is: “Aspen, a place where the beer flows like wine.” Wine bars, per se, may be hard to find specifically, but it’s easy to stumble upon a delicious, and surprising, glass of wine in this town.

Victoria's Espresso & Wine Bar

Wine and espresso go together like a sweet afternoon on the Mediterranean Sea. In fact, all three go together nicely and but they also pair well with the mountains too. Victoria's Espresso & Wine Bar has found that perfect combination of sourcing fine artisan food with specialty wines and complex espresso. The corner cafe above Belly Up is always filled with people drinking wine, and espresso, any time of day.
400 E. Hopkins Ave. Aspen, CO 81611 970-925-1566

Le Creperie du Village

The Creperie says they're like your favorite jeans: "the perfect fit for any occasion." And this outing happens to be a glass of wine. Specializing in Old World wines to pay homage to its high-alpine theme and setting, le Creperie du Village offers plenty by the glass and serves sweet and savory crepes to pair with it.

Element 47

With three sommeliers on staff and a Wine Enthusiast declaration of being one of the "100 Best Wine Restaurants in America," The Little Nell's wine program is hard to beat. There are thousands of carefully curated bottles from which to choose if one of the many wines by the glass doesn't suit the mood. But once there, true oenophiles will stay for the food--and perhaps another glass or two.

Cache Cache

With more than 1,000 labels in the cellar, discerning palates will find everything from Burgundy to Barolo. The sommelier is happy to help wade through the thick wine list, but so are the knowledgable bartenders in the cooly lit lounge area too.
330 E. Main St. Aspen, CO 81611 (970)920-1000

The Living Room in Hotel Jerome

The Hotel Jerome's newly remodeled interior lends itself to Aspen's historic past and embraces contemporary alpine--so does its bar area.
