Top 5 Spots in Bethesda for a Refined Wine Experience

It’s no wonder that wine has been a celebrated part of the human experience for thousands of years. Wine pairs with every occasion, from casual fun with friends to more refined experiences. Here are five places just steps from our Bethesda apartments that will help you enjoy a nice glass of wine.


Duck Duck Goose

It’s no surprise to start with a French bistro, after all France is one of the largest producers of wine in the world and definitely makes some of the best. The appreciation of fine food and fine wine is a way of life in France, and Duck Duck Goose brings this perspective to Woodmont Triangle. You can expect superb ingredients, exquisitely prepared and perfectly paired with delicious wines. Is there anything more you could ask for?



If wine is a way of life in France, in Italy it is life. In fact, Italy is the only country that produces more wine than France. So, it’s natural that you can find an amazing wine experience at Olazzo. Go light with a crisp, fruit-forward white with your lemony linguine and clams. Or, match a hearty sausage dish with an equally spicy red. It’s up to you at this charming Italian spot.


Rocklands Farm

Go to the source. Ok, it’s more than a few steps to this winery, but it is definitely worth a trip when the mercury starts to creep up and the idea of spending an afternoon outside is appealing again. Pack a blanket, a selection of your favorite cheeses, charcuterie, crackers and other picnicking foods and take a drive to Potomac to enjoy this winery. All that's left is to laze on the lawn and savor a selection of Rocklands Farm's delicious wines. 


Capital Beer & Wine

No home is complete without a bottle or two waiting for the right moment to uncork. Need a kicky Cabernet? Searching for a sultry Syrah? With a carefully curated selection of wine, you know you’re in good hands at Capital Beer and Wine. It may be small, but the options are suited to meet even the most discerning palates.


Gallery Bethesda II

After you pick up that lovely bottle from the wine store, you will need an equally lovely place to enjoy it. Perhaps you’d like to enjoy it on a rooftop terrace, or maybe over a game of pool with friends—yes, pool and wine is a tremendous pairing. Any one of the many spaces at Gallery Bethesda II is an ideal place to enjoy your vino.

And, on Saturday, February 23, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., you can enjoy a selection of wine and lite hors d'oeuvres while getting a taste of these beautiful apartments in Bethesda. It’s an excellent opportunity to sip, savor and experience luxe living in the heart of Bethesda in Woodmont Triangle. Click here for more information on this event.

If you love wine, and who doesn’t, consider living in a place where you’re surrounded by options to indulge in refined wine experiences at your leisure. Find your beautiful new apartment at Bethesda at Gallery Bethesda II to make this dream come true.
