Bar à vin has an evolving list of around forty wines, the majority available in 125ml and 175ml glasses as well as by the bottle. The list is almost exclusively French and covers every major wine producing region in France. There is always room for intriguing bottles on the specials list – wherever they come from.

Every wine on the list is there because we think it offers a unique take on a style of wine or is a very good example of a wine style from a certain grape, blend or region. Many of them are chosen because they pair well with our food offer.

We don't make a big fuss about this but, in general, we like wines which are biodynamic, organic or naturally made. Many of them come from small, family-run winemakers. The bottom line is that we stock wines which have been made with care and a sense of craftsmanship.

The guiding ethos is that we love wine and want to share that enthusiasm with you. Our wine list is designed to be explored and we are happy to guide you through it. Alternatively, you could put yourself entirely in our hands and order a flight of wine. Called ‘in l'escargot we trust’, the flights are great way to try something new.

Whether you want a special bottle of celebratory Champagne or simply need a soothing glass of red after a long day, we are confident that we can find something that you will love.

Bar à vin aims to be Edinburgh's best wine bar but wine is not the only drink on the menu. We also offer a range of Scottish craft beers, gins and artisan fruit juices. Looking to France, we also stock ciders and Calvados from Normandy, Armagnacs and Cognacs as well as excellent coffee.
