An unbeatable selection of brews isn’t the only thing Columbia has to offer. Wine connoisseurs can get their fill of delicious, unique and exotic tastes with the area’s numerous local wine experiences. Venture to the community's seasonal events or year-round restaurants and dive into extensive menus of whites, reds and roses. You can even look out for Lake Carolina's own Wine & Food Festival, hosted each fall to raise money for local children's education and welfare. Below are a few pit-stops vital for any wine enthusiast. - 116 Espresso & Wine Bar Get the best of both worlds at this unique cafe that serves brunch and dinner! While 116 offers an array of delicious breakfast foods and coffee, guests can stop by in the later hours for a large selection of red, white and sparkling wines. Yum! - Wine Tasting at Riverbanks Zoo & Botanical Garden Support Riverbank’s commitment to conservation at this local wine tasting! Sample domestic and imported flavors while listening to live jazz. All proceeds go to aiding the organization’s animals, plants and education programs. - Barre3 & Wine Tasting Who said wine tasting had to be done during a fancy night on the town? Get active with an hour-long barre class and then wind down with wine flights and a scenic view of the Mercer House Estate Winery vineyard. Just bring a yoga mat and a craving for ‘fine-wining’. - Travinia Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar This award-winning, contemporary hangout offers an extensive collection from world-class vineyards. Along with exquisite, Italian fine-dining, choose from “rich and lush”, “light and crisp”, short, sweet and bubbly” or tastefully “enticing reds”. Plus, bottles are 25% off every Tuesday!  - Cellar on Greene This quaint hole-in-the-wall has tons of charm. Open as a wine retail store during the day, guests can choose from the shop's hearty reds, sweet citrus-y whites and dozens of other choices. During its hours of operation as a wine bar, Cellar on the Greene is the perfect place for a date night, girls night or night on the town with friends. Sample menu favorites with a wine flight or grab a bottle for the table to share! - For more information on how to make Columbia YOUR home, check out Lake Carolina’s new homes for sale.
