Best Wine List

Gold Winner Obladee, A Wine Bar

Silver Winner The Bicycle Thief

Bronze Winner Chives Canadian Bistro

Obladee is the people’s wine bar. You won’t find the menu stuffed full of trophy wines like Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Instead, Obladee offers a range of wines including different places, prices and styles. What’s more, Obladee’s list is easy to navigate. Many wine lists are difficult to understand, but Obladee’s co-owner Heather Rankin says wine culture is moving towards this more down-to-earth approach. Today, people want to simply enjoy wine. Like the lives and tastes of everyday people, the wine list remains in flux. What’s got Obladee excited lately? The surprise find of a great “cult wine,” Cabernet Franc Syrah Puydeval, right here at home.
