Wine, oh wine — dearest elixir of life, how do we love thee? Well, we pretty much drink the good stuff like it's going out of style. After all, vino was the drink of the gods, so we'll take a full-bodied Merlot over beer or booze any night of the week.
And, while a comfy couch and full glass is our usual M.O., sometimes we want to imbibe in a more social setting than our living room. The solution? Find a watering hole that specializes in our own particular poison. Luckily, whether you're a wine enthusiast or a novice who wants to expand her palate, the DMV has an impressive roster of amazing wine bars. We rounded up 10 of our well-stocked favorites, so you've got plenty of options the next time you want to enjoy a glass (or two) somewhere with a little more ambience. Cheers!
