Sabile (audio|Sabilepronunc.ogg|pronunciation) is a city in Talsi district, Latvia.

Sabile was first mentioned in chronicles in 1253. From the 14th century to the 16th century, it was a site of a castle of the Livonian Order and a village near the castle. Sabilė became a town in 1917.

The Vīna kalns of Sabile is the most northern open-air vineyard in the world, registered in the Guinness Book of Records. The winemaking tradition in Sabile dates back to the 16th century.

The Sabile Castle Mound, which in the 10th–13th centuries was the center of the district, offers a beautiful panorama of downtown Sabile and the valley of the Abava River.
