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.
