METRO: Jing’an Temple (Line 2, Line 7)
A couple of streets away from Enoterra, this two-floor wine bar’s cozy atmosphere comes from its bare red-brick interior walls and wood floors. The beams and fittings were salvaged from historic buildings. A sophisticated temperature control system means that each bottle is chilled (or warmed) to perfection.
Prices per bottle range from the sublime to the ridiculous, but the lower end of the spectrum is reasonable. Downstairs you can either sit around the bar or on the low sofas, while the second level has tables and chairs. Complement your wine with a cheese plate, charcuterie board, or toasted sandwich from the snack menu.
