Best Wine List
A top-ranked French restaurant deserves a top-notch wine list. Bleu Provence (239-261-8239) complies with an extensive number of wines by the glass, half bottles, full bottles and large bottles. The wines come from the world over, but French wines play a major role. Co-owner Jacques Cariot curates the wine list himself and can make pairing suggestions for your meal. The restaurant’s wine collection contains more than 20,000 bottles. The wine list is encyclopedic in size and content, but well-catalogued according to size of serving, region of origin, and aperitif, white, red, sparkling and dessert wines.
Wine is an obvious focus at Angelina’s; the first thing you see is a 30-foot glass tower of wine. The wine list covers the world, with a focus on Italian vintages. (angelinasofbonitasprings.com, 239-390-3187)
