wine with a view - urban

Wine with a view: raise a glass to these great cityscapes!

If you’re an Instagrammer, you’ve probably noticed this trend: photos focused on a drink in front of a beautiful backdrop. Sometimes that backdrop is a mountain range, a beautiful lake or an ocean. And sometimes that photo is a glass of wine with a view of big cityscape or skyline. Whatever the view, the idea behind these photos is to let followers know the Instagrammer is living the good life.

Being the wine lovers that we are, our fav drink to hold in front of an urban landscape is of course a glass of wine. Here are some enticing wine with a view pics from cities around the USA and the globe.

New York

Life goals: chilling a bottle of Dom Perignon in snow on a rooftop in NYC! This high up, we’d definitely opt for unbreakable wineglasses!

We love this wine and whisky sundowner in one of the few cities in the world that truly does not sleep.

Vilafranca del Penedes

A visit to this Spanish town requires two things: a trip to the Wine Museum (yes, it’s a real place: Vinseum!) and a visit to the top of Santissima Church where you can sip a glass of wine with a view.


Teleport us here NOW. We want to chill at Fisherman’s Bastion with a glass of wine.

Drinking French wine in French-speaking Canada- those are some serious #travelgoals!


After a day in this high-intensity megacity, reflecting on it all while drinking a bottle of wine is definitely a moment we’d welcome!
