Best Local Wine List


There's nowhere in Boise quite like Bodovino, where guests are wristbanded at the door and invited to taste any of the 144 wines on tap with the push of a button. What sets Bodovino apart are its Wine Emotion machines, high-tech, glass-fronted dispensers that are basically classy soda fountains for vino. The sleek gadgetry and incredible selection make this is the perfect downtown Boise spot relax with friends, order cheese plate and unwind from a long week.

2nd Place: Chandlers—In 2016, Chandlers won a Best Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator magazine, a designation that marked its wine list among the best in the world. The restaurant also offers a Winemakers Dinner four times a year, where the chef, sommelier and a guest vintner hold court.

3rd Place: Barbacoa—This upscale, art-filled establishment is well worth a visit just to walk through its famous "tunnel of wine," an arch-shaped hallway lined entirely with wine bottles.
