14. New Day Craft, Indianapolis, Indiana
"Right now, you'll find me hopping between Paulding Light (cranberry mead that's so refreshing it deserves to be served for breakfast), hot cider (available in to-go cups), and my new love child: Sap Sucker. Because the only thing better than honey is maple syrup." — Yelper Brittany S.
15. Brix Cheese Shop & Wine Bar, Iowa City, Iowa
"The cheese tray options were plentiful, and included five cheese options that ran $3 each for a good-size chunk. The additional cheese tray sundry items included pickles in different brines, pickled onions, hummus, crackers, and number of other options, most of which were from local establishments. A very good tray fed four of us for about $15." — Yelper Matt U.
16. Wine Dive, Wichita, Kansas

18. Bacchanal Wine, New Orleans, Louisiana

You pick the wines and cheese you want, and then you head outside to drink said wine, and wait for your cheese plate creation to be delivered." — Yelper Tiffany N.
"Go with a couple bottles so you won't have to make as many trips up to the front. The party's in the back...it's lit mostly by strings of Christmas lights, and there are mismatched tables with a hodgepodge of chairs. if you don't have a backyard, this is it." — Yelper Morgan F.

23. Gyst Fermentation Bar, Minneapolis, Minnesota

"The Wine Feed also offers classes to educate and enjoy the experience of wine. We have taken two classes and enjoyed each one (wine & cheese, and cabernet). It's not the type of class that you feel you need to 'know' anything beforehand, and they welcome questions of all kinds."— Yelper Monica W.

48. Sona Creamery And Wine Bar, Washington, D.C.
"Charcuterie plate was fun! It's worth it to ask for bacon jam on side. The lamb and egg shirring was my favorite; it went so well with the crusty bread. The fries with cheese curds were surprisingly awesome and perfect as appetizer." Yelper — My I.
