Classic Chiantis, biodynamic natural wines, and citrusy Chablis
Whether it’s a jammy Beaujolais in the dead of winter or a crisp sauvignon blanc during summer’s sweltering arc, few things are more delightful than a fragrant glass of wine.

Sip juicy, unfiltered natural wines along the Mississippi River, pair a Barolo with contemporary Italian cuisine in south Minneapolis, or lean on curated wine pairings in Highland Park. Here are nine intimate wine bars to try around the Twin Cities.
