Brunette Wine Bar

Opened by the design-savvy team of Jamie and Tracy Kennard, Kingston’s Brunette Wine Bar is as much fun to look at as it is to dine in: the wine bottles and savory snacks served on mismatched china stand out against the white brick walls, marble tables and refurbished wooden floors. Tracy curates a wild selection of natural wines at this waterfront-district hangout, changing the selection frequently. Spotted on a recent visit: Paleokerisio from Domaine Glinavos, a sparkling amber wine from Greece, and Crnko Jarenincan, a Slovenian Muller-Thurgau, as well as a Morgon from Christine et Gilles Paris.
