Bender’s Tavern has one of the finest collections of wine in Northeast Ohio, with a vast wine cellar of more than 1,850 bottles and 140 varieties from which to choose. Bender’s Tavern is a recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, for lists that offer a well-chosen selection of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style, and at least 100 selections, and Wine Spectator recognized them specifically for their strength in California wines.

Peruse our collections of reds and whites, sparklings and blends, and don’t hesitate to contact Jerry Jacob, owner and wine director, for more information about the Bender’s Tavern wine menu.
