Try the flatbread pizzas! I had a white pizza with fresh arugula on top. It was hot and tasty and just the right size you'll have plenty to share with your friends too. Not only do they have a great selections of wine and cheeses, the bartender creates some fabulous mixed drinks too. I had the Rusty O, perfect for... More

Not just your typical glass of chardonnay or pinot grigio. Good choices of different wine styles especially whites, such as Gruner Veltliner, Rose, etc. Get the Roasted Chicken Meatballs, great flavor with a bit of a kick.

The waiters are very knowledgeable about their wines. The selection is extensive. The food is suitable for light bites rather than a full meal. Service is excellent

Initially, when we first started visiting Old Vines, it was to order glasses of Sangiovese wine at the bar then we discovered the pleasure of the Tapas menu savoring a variety of unusual domestic and international meats and cheese. The cozy atmosphere inside and spacious tabled patio with fire pit for summer evenings were reminiscent of favorite places in our... More

We were staying in Wells and looking for a good place to get a drink after dinner, so we asked our waitress, a local of the area, what she suggested. She recommended Old Vines. And it did not disappoint! We really enjoyed the atmosphere of this wine bar. It was a really fun place and the wine was excellent. It's... More

Expensive stop for a drink, menu was not dinner quality food and pricey, so we just had drinks and left. If you are a wine bar enthusiast, it is a nice stop.

While the food menu isn't huge, there are some interesting things to chose from this tapas style menu. Try the duck prosciutto - delicious! Wine menu offers interesting choices. And, on a chilly night, sit out by the fire pit and enjoy a chat.

A definite must stop for a glass of anything! Wonderful wines but full bar as well. We stopped for an after dinner drink. Love the outdoor fire. Didn't try the food as we had just eaten dinner but the menu looked so good.
