Derek Li, the group somm, loves to source exotic wines for his by the glass list — last time I was there, there was one Greek, one Georgian and one Bulgarian wine — and has always carefully thought through how they will pair with Duddell's amazing Cantonese cuisine.

One of the co-owners, Camille, is a big natural wine fan, and the ones she chooses are always clean and well-made. While most natural wine spots in the city stick to a single country, she sources from all over the world and has a great rotating list by the glass.

This place is beloved by wine insiders. Although it’s named for its by the glass list, the 1,000+ by the bottle list is more impressive and is very well priced. Almost everything is from France, but within that, it’s very diverse and the staff will make great recommendations.
