Ashley was amazing and helped us plan a wonderful private wine tasting event for our friends and family. The wine and pairings were absolutely amazing, the staff was kind and you could tell that they loved sharing their knowledge and love of wine!10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to plan an intimate event, grab a quick drink, or just to relax, “wine” down and stay for a few hours!

Wine bar and wine shop. Wide and terrific selection of reasonably priced wines and unique varietals. Good for groups as well as date night. Tasty bites to pair with your wine as well. Also, check out website for easy online ordering and curbside pickup. Support local business!

Awesome, low key place to read or meet with friends over a cocktail or glass of wine. Excellent food. Pricier, but you get what you pay for in terms of service, quality, environment. Open until midnight most nights

We love, love, LOVE Aviné! We came in for drinks one Saturday afternoon. My boyfriend had a glass of Bordeaux and I had a cocktail with cassis and champagne. Both were delicious and beautifully presented. The bar itself is classy with marble countertops and brass fixtures, with vintage wine and liquor posters decorating the walls- I felt like I was back in Paris. The shop selection is small but well-curated and priced fairly. I left with a bottle of one of my favorite Morgon wines at the lowest price I've seen in the area. If you want a quiet, classic bar or just need a bottle to bring home, Aviné is for you!

Pleasantly surprised to find this jewel of a wine bar/shop with small bites. So glad that my friend showed me this place, seemingly hidden in plain view the shop is beautifully furnished right on 2nd ave North in downtown Birmingham. The owner welcomed us and the sommelier at the bar was friendly and super knowledgeable. I think his name was Matthew. We wanted a wine to go with a dinner but also decided to have a glass while we were there. After tasting a couple we decided on the latter, a French from the Bordeaux region. Fabulously rich but not too thick on the palate.The som gave us the rundown on the region and variety, very helpful.At any rate they had a very good selection of wines not found locally and also have regular tastings. We did not have time for any bites but everything looked good. If you are in the area I recommend not passing up this special place. I will definitely be going back for another visit.Urban CowgillMarch 2022

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here! Good wine, great charcuterie board, wonderful staff! Highly recommend!


The owner is extremely disrespectful, we were regular customers since they opened, but we'll never be back. Be aware that this place does not care about your safety and instead thinks a sign will protect you.

My wife and I have been coming here pretty regularly since it opened, couch ( bartender) has always taken care of us and is very knowledgeable and in point. however, unfortunately the owner doesn't care enough about the safety of the customers and won't allow you to carry your firearm. He went so far as to call the police and have me escorted out even after he asked if I had a permit and never even hinted the he wanted me to leave or carry my firearm back to my vehicle. this area of downtown is not the safest place in Birmingham, so patron this place at your own risk.

The server was rude, condescending with a bad attitude. She assumed the we wanted an "economical" bottle of wine !!! We simply asked for her recommedation of a good cabrernet sauvignon. We've been to Avine before and had a great time and experience at the bar. Maybe we should've sat at the bar! It's a-shame how one person can completely ruin of a customer experience.

Austere, friendly, and elegant. Knowledgeable servers. Heart of downtown.

Rob Payne

It was fabulous! Shrimp Rolls! Rosé Cava! The chef had just made a panna cotta and it was amazing! Such a personal experience

Jeremy Concepcion

In an ocean of dilettante restaurants it's incredibly refreshing to experience the focus and curation that Aviné brings to the table. Had an excellent experience here, highly recommend visiting.

Amanda Bishop

Such a warm inviting atmosphere, perfect to relax and unwind. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, when in doubt, ask for recommendations because they know!
