My husband and I had a lovely time here. Our server made great recommendations and our drinks were lovely. As a realtor, I'm always looking for great places to celebrate closings (:
This place is beyond perfect. Wonderful wine and cocktails. Plus, their small plates are delicious. I would recommend it to anyone.
I may be just a little bit of a homer in my review because of my friendship with the owners and staff at Avine. However, i have always been told you are what you are and Avine is wonderful. They have a great selection of wine at retail and on the menu. They go across all regions. The bar also has a beautiful selection of mixed drinks. Now, to what i like best -- the food is fantastic. I love to eat and am always happy at Avine. The charcuterie boards are my go to every time. The staff is very in tuned and takes care of the small stuff that makes a difference in your experience.
My favorite spot for a drink downtown. Great appetizers, atmosphere and drinks (not just wine).
A fantastic spot for wine lovers! I specifically wanted to go someplace that has wine flights, and Avine does a great deal of 4 2oz pours for $15 - this is ESPECIALLY a good deal because they had included a Gigontas wine in the menu that goes for $22 a glass ;) Another thing I loved about coming here is the service - our server was lovely, and took her time to walk us through the flavor notes of several wines. After we finished our flight, we chose to order some glasses of wine. She recommended one of the wines we ordered and offered us to taste it before ordering the full glass too! Overall the service and vibes of Avine are spectacular, and I plan to come back the next time I'm in town :)
Ashley was amazing and helped us plan a wonderful private wine tasting event for our friends and family. The wine and pairings were absolutely amazing, the staff was kind and you could tell that they loved sharing their knowledge and love of wine!10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to plan an intimate event, grab a quick drink, or just to relax, “wine” down and stay for a few hours!
Wine bar and wine shop. Wide and terrific selection of reasonably priced wines and unique varietals. Good for groups as well as date night. Tasty bites to pair with your wine as well. Also, check out website for easy online ordering and curbside pickup. Support local business!
Awesome, low key place to read or meet with friends over a cocktail or glass of wine. Excellent food. Pricier, but you get what you pay for in terms of service, quality, environment. Open until midnight most nights
Friendly, professional, and quaint. Loved the atmosphere and of course the wine!
Excellent experience. Professional, quick, polite, knowledgeable staff. Clean, cool atmosphere. Loved the variety on the menu. We loved our drinks and overall experience. Can't wait to return!
The best !!!!! Great service. Great bar program. Great selection.
We love, love, LOVE Aviné! We came in for drinks one Saturday afternoon. My boyfriend had a glass of Bordeaux and I had a cocktail with cassis and champagne. Both were delicious and beautifully presented. The bar itself is classy with marble countertops and brass fixtures, with vintage wine and liquor posters decorating the walls- I felt like I was back in Paris. The shop selection is small but well-curated and priced fairly. I left with a bottle of one of my favorite Morgon wines at the lowest price I've seen in the area. If you want a quiet, classic bar or just need a bottle to bring home, Aviné is for you!
Pleasantly surprised to find this jewel of a wine bar/shop with small bites. So glad that my friend showed me this place, seemingly hidden in plain view the shop is beautifully furnished right on 2nd ave North in downtown Birmingham. The owner welcomed us and the sommelier at the bar was friendly and super knowledgeable. I think his name was Matthew. We wanted a wine to go with a dinner but also decided to have a glass while we were there. After tasting a couple we decided on the latter, a French from the Bordeaux region. Fabulously rich but not too thick on the palate.The som gave us the rundown on the region and variety, very helpful.At any rate they had a very good selection of wines not found locally and also have regular tastings. We did not have time for any bites but everything looked good. If you are in the area I recommend not passing up this special place. I will definitely be going back for another visit.Urban CowgillMarch 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here! Good wine, great charcuterie board, wonderful staff! Highly recommend!
Came in late around 11:30 with a coworker. They close at midnight. We work in the service industry, so the most annoying thing that can happen is when a new guest walks in the door right before last call. We didn't want to be "those people" so we asked for a quick cocktail. But that was not how we were treated. We were welcomed like it was still 7pm. I made a comment about coming back for the charcuterie board next time and they offered us a board right then! Jess told us we had until midnight to order food and we were so excited! Everything we had was excellent, and most of the suggestions came from the bartenders. Chandler and Jess made us drinks that were superb! They both were knowledgeable, attentive, beyond friendly, and inviting. We will be back!!
