    Old and new in Glasgow wine bars

    These old favourites are now being challenged by some stunning New World wines. You will find powerful Shiraz from Australia and smooth Pinot Noir from California. Chile does some great Cabernet and New Zealand's Sauvignon Blanc is legendary. Even these New World wines are becoming almost traditional now but there are always other countries entering the market with some great new wines. In Glasgow wine bars, for example, you can now find wines from countries such as Canada, Argentina and even England. There is no doubt that all of this competition is seriously increasing standards.

    Where to find wine bars in Glasgow

    The good news is that there are bars focused on wine throughout Glasgow. The city centre, of course, has a great choice and offers an excellent opportunity to enjoy that sophisticated and glamorous style that this city is famous for. The West End attracts a trendy crowd too and the large student population supports lots of fun places in and around the Byres Road area and Ashton Lane. The Southside is another good area to try out and now the East End of Glasgow has excellent wine bars.

    Eating in Glasgow wine bars

    One of the best things about wines is matching them with food and that is something wine bars in Glasgow excel at. You can try just a few tapas at the bar to complement your glass or enjoy some fine cheese and charcuterie while sharing a bottle. Both go so well with your drink. Technology has improved also, so now even the most delicate wines can be kept fresh and enjoyed by the glass, rather than splashing out on a bottle. This way, you can easily find new favourites to enjoy.
