Wine and good views just go together! It’s hard to beat sitting on a beachfront balcony and sipping a cool Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, or a slightly chilled (~60 degrees) Cabernet Sauvignon!
Okay, any type of wine is great at any time! If you’re looking to enjoy some wine while visiting Clearwater Beach, here are the best places to drink wine and where to buy more when you run out!
Where to Drink Wine in Clearwater Beach, Florida
Sitting on your private balcony, with a cool glass of wine in hand is a beautiful place to be. You have a great view, the wine of your choice, more cooling in your full kitchen just inside and no need to drive anywhere to get home!
Alcohol is not allowed directly on the beach, but this is just as good if not better because it stays cool just steps away! There are many beachfront condos all with private balconies and full kitchens available at Surfside Condominiums and The Villas of Clearwater Beach!

There’s one place I have to mention when talking about wine on Clearwater Beach, and that’s Clearwater Wine Bar & Bistro! They may not have a beachfront view, but they have an amazing wine selection with a European inspired menu. Wine can be enjoyed there or you may purchase some to take home with you.
