Vinz, located in Pelican Plaza, sets a warm, sophisticated, and embracing atmosphere to enjoy a long and carefully selected wine list, with a tasty and well matched small plates menu. Combine the above with frequent live music and you will love the experience.
At Vinz we like to drink wine – whether it’s inside with bottle lined walls or outside in the breezy covered courtyard.
“Come drink with us at Vinz in Vero Beach.”
At Vinz in Vero, we love wine and who doesn’t enjoy a fragrant plate of pasta with a glass of wine? So many varieties of both and pairing the right pasta with a complementary wine can be easier than you think. The most important factor in choosing the right wine to go with a specific type of pasta is considering the sauce, its flavor and ingredients.
There are five basic sauces that we eat with pasta – meat, tomato, oil, cheese and cream.
With sauces made with red meat, it is important to pair these dishes with a robust wine that stands up to the strong flavors of the meat. Tomato-based sauces are more acidic, so it’s important to choose a wine that has a higher acidity factor. Sauces that are made with various oils are best paired with white or sparkling wine. If you are having pasta with cheese-based sauces, “full-bodied” white wines are the best choice. And, last but not least, there are the cream sauces which go best with white wines or a very “light” red wine.
The following is a listing of examples various pairings :
- Pasta with Pesto Sauce – Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc
- Pasta with Tomato Sauce – Chianti or Zinfandel
- Pasta with Meat Sauce – Chianti, Zinfandel or Barolo
- Pasta Arrabiata – Shiraz
- Pasta with Shellfish – Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay
- Fettucine Alfredo – Pinot Blance, Sancerre, Pinot Noir or Orvieto
- Pasta Primavera – Viognier or Pinto Grigio
- Pasta Puttanesca – Sauvignon Blanc or Bardolino
- Pasta with Garlic Oil – Verdicchio or Pinot Grigio
- Spaghetti Carbonara – Barolo
Enjoy your favorite pasta dishes with a delectable glass of wine and breathe in the joys of life. Take time out from your busy schedule this week and stop by Vinz in Vero for a relaxing evening of food and wine!

Wine Quote of the Day
“As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
If you have been stuck indoors all day today with this wild, wet weather. Once it breaks a little, come and see us. Have a glass of wine, and munch on some appetizers. Our bruschetta gets great reviews!! So do our pretzels, served warm from the oven.
What to drink on damp, stormy day? I bet your inclination would be to try a red wine. We have some excellent reds, including our house red, which ladies get a deal on tonight. But I am thinkin with this muggy, humid weather that a nice chilled, crisp white wine sounds so good.

Bill states: “Thank you for a very nice evening last night at Vinz. The wine, the dessert, the live music, all in a lovely outdoor setting. We have new favorite wine bar in Vero Beach and it’s Vinz Wining & Dining.”
Aggie writes: “ I am Italian and I love wine. The atmosphere at some of the other local wine bars is either too noisy or too quiet for me. Vinz in Vero is just right. The wine selection at Vinz is great, I love to sip and munch on cheese. And the music is just my style. My friends and I will be back..”
Cathy says: ” I took a group of 6 friends here as a thank you for their hard work. We didn’t have a reservation, but the staff stepped right up and took great care of us. It was ladies night, so all the women got their wine at a discount. The men were a little jealous, but we promised to come back on Men’s night and get them some nice glasses of wine.”
