Although the tri-county region has long been known as an area that caters to cocktail enthusiasts, recent years have seen wine’s popularity surge. Many local restaurants have begun to strongly emphasize offering a carefully selected wine list, allowing wine aficionados to indulge in their passion. In fact, some eateries have even gone a step further by developing their own unique wine labels.
In South Florida, these four restaurants invite guests to sip and experience their private wine labels:
LPM Restaurant & Bar, a renowned French Riviera restaurant with branches across the globe, has launched its own rosé in partnership with Domaine Figuière. The LPM x Figuière collaboration celebrates the successful relationship between LPM and Figuière over the past decade and is now available at all LPM locations by the glass. To ensure the highest quality culinary experience, LPM brought together its Head Sommeliers worldwide and sent them to the South of France to meet with rosé producers, including the Combard family from Domaine Figuière. This trip resulted in the creation of the first-ever LPM x Figuière cuvée, which is a testament to the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of Figuière wines and LPM’s commitment to its employees.

The Hampton Social has taken the lead in fully embracing the “Rosé All Day” lifestyle by introducing their own proprietary private label, H Rosé, now available at all of their locations. As the featured rosé on tap, H Rosé has become the must-have drink of the summer and is quickly becoming the go-to wine for any occasion.
The renowned Greek restaurant chain Avra recently introduced its wine label, Avra Vin De Provence. The brand’s rosé is a sensory delight, featuring a delightful combination of pink grapefruit and English candy aromas, transforming into the fruity notes of red berries and fresh peaches. Its taste is equally impressive, bursting with citrus and pepper flavors, and embodies the traditional Provence rosé style. The wine is a perfect complement to summer salads and grilled white meats, making it a must-try for wine enthusiasts.
Ball & Chain, the iconic Miami hotspot, has three exclusive house wines – Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir – unavailable elsewhere. These wines are perfect for pairing with Ball & Chain’s signature dishes and can also be taken home as a display piece, thanks to their hand-painted labels.
