March 11, 2020 at 4:00 AM

What could possibly pair better with The Black Olive's flavorful Greek and Mediterranean dishes? Our award-winning wine list allows us to recommend an amazing glass of wine to compliment every meal on the menu. With over 5,000 bottles available at a time, we can accommodate an incredibly diverse array of palettes. So bring your friends and enjoy some delicious food and wine at one of the best restaurants in Maryland! 

How We Choose Our Wines

We have a lot of criteria that goes into selecting the wines for our wine list. We're far too passionate about wine to accept anything less than the best. As a family-owned business serving traditional meals and family recipes, we feel as though multiple generations live in our restaurant. That shows in our wine list, which represents our relationships with winemakers, importers, vineyard owners, and farmers from around the world. 

We consider good agricultural practices to be the base for every great wine. That's why we seek out responsible and experienced farmers for every bottle, always asking about any possible uses of pesticides or non-organic fertilizers. We're an eco-conscious business, so many of the wines we offer are made from certified organic grapes. We believe these practices are both better for the Earth and better for the flavor of the wine itself.

Our Wine Experience is Unique

With over 5,000 bottles of wine patiently cellared over so many years, we truly have something for everybody. While we may give some special attention to traditional Greek wines, our cellar is home to some of the most unforgettable wines from around the world, all served in our pristine, high-quality glassware. 

Part of what makes our wine experience unique is that we can accommodate any palette, and know exactly which wines compliment our cuisine the best. Guests can order food and then hear our recommendation of wines, or vice versa.

So whether you're ordering lunch or dinner, our kakavia soup, or our lobster pasta, you're sure to have an unforgettable dining experience. If you'd rather focus on our wine and not order full meals, our lunch appetizer comes with our four traditional spreads, olives, and feta cheese, perfect for sharing as you sip wine and chat with friends.
