A NATURAL WINE BAR IN WASHINGTON DC

Dio Wine Bar is a female-owned natural wine bar located on DC’s H Street Corridor. Our wines are made from organic or biodynamically farmed grapes and with little added or removed in the cellar. Our intimate and casual space offers a short selection of cocktails, beers, ciders and a small farm-driven menu of shared bites and snacks.

Our Menu Pay Us A Visit

Menu

Our carefully curated wine program is constantly rotating and features 30 wines. More than half are available by the glass. We also offer a short selection of cocktails and variety of bar snacks. Where we can’t offer natural, we highlight local makers from the DMV — whether it’s our spirits, ice cream, tea or coffee. We also make as much as possible in house — our jams, pickles, cordials, shrubs, syrups, and bread — yes, fresh baked bread.

Why Natural?

Natural wine has no legal definition, and so it can mean different things to different people, farmers, and winemakers. At Dio it means the grapes were farmed in a sustainable, organic, or biodynamic manner (as few pesticides and chemical sprays as possible). It also means that there are little additives and mechanized processes for removing components from wine, like alcohol or acid. Farmers and winemakers all over the world have embraced the philosophy that heavy-handed chemical use — or any chemical use — is not necessary for good wine. We embrace this approach, and we are excited to offer DC something different.

I was born and raised in Sonoma County, California. I studied International Studies and African Studies at Yale and worked as a USAID contractor in East Africa and DC. While I enjoyed international work, I was ready to try something new and get back to my wine roots. So I got my MA in Food Systems from NYU and was like “I want to open a natural wine bar.” And so I did. I loves all things music and books, and my husband too.

I am a New Jersey native who’s made the District my home for the past ten years. I came here to attend Howard University, but the world of hospitality stole me away, and now I’ve done it all: hosting, serving, bartending, and even cheese-mongering. I am a Rose’s Luxury alum, and I recently earned the Introductory Certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers. I love to support the local art scene, attend live shows, and dance around town.
