Description: Old Vines openned last spring. Wonderful, cozy, European style wine bar which serves a menu of "small plates" and great wine list. I go there often and love it. Its been well reviewed in local paper and Portland (ME) Press Herald. If you list it, it will get reviews as it is popular with local residents and visitors.

“Good wine, good food, great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We have been to Old Vines several times and have enjoyed each visit. Their wine list is interesting and well priced. They also serve excellent cocktails. Our favorite thing to do is to go with another couple for tapas and wine. Manchego cheese, Serrano ham, olives, turkey meatballs - all excellent!

“Great tapas and wines!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Great selection and standard of food for all tastes. Wine list was extensive with most regions well represented. Mid level pricing and great service. Would definitely return.

“Wine & dine here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This is a cozy wine bar with a dozen or more tables for two and the bar, of course.
The wine list is great and the wines we had were excellent.
We ordered some appetisers and 2 plates. They were both very well prepared, presented and super-flavorful. Our only complaint is the portions were on the petite side for the price paid. Bread was not served automatically so we asked for some, to soak up the delicious sauce. Two nice slender pieces. The atmosphere is very nice, with wine box covers lining the wall.
Come and enjoy. Dogs permitted on outside sitting area.
