Milwaukee's best wine list, 2017

"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee is brought to you by Miller Brewing Company, calling Milwaukee home since 1855. For the entire month of March, we're serving up fun articles on bars, clubs and beverages – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews, the results of our Best of Bars poll and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!


The wine lovers in Milwaukee have spoken, and they picked Balzac as the top spot for vino.

Balzac offers wine by the glass and on tap and has a book-sized menu of wine by the bottle. The offerings change with supply, but it always features a full range of styles at all price levels. Whether you're looking for something rare and interesting or one of the "safe standards," Balzac has your cravings covered.

Runners up:
2. Pizza Man
3. Thief Wine Bar
4. Story Hill BKC
5. Bacchus

This year we also asked a variety of prominent Milwaukeeans to weigh in on their pick for specific categories. For this category, we consulted Elizabeth Moen, wine enthusiast.

"I think Thief Wine has the best list in the city! Thief Wine has an ever-changing selection of interesting wines, many from smaller producers. And nothing is better than grabbing a glass of wine while people-watching at the Public Market."
