Where to wine in the East Bay

They say a glass or two of red wine a night is good for the heart, and we really like to take that advice to heart. It’s already easy enough to understand why drinking vino has remained a pretty ubiquitous pastime through the ages, so the suggested health benefits support the joyful cause even more.

A warming and welcoming glass of wine never goes out of style, especially when you don’t have to drive because there are beloved wine bearers right within BARTable reach. Take yourself out for some solo sipping or bring a date to one of these East Bay wine bars within minutes from BART.
