Wining and Dining in Kennebunkport

The weather has been absolutely fabulous in Kennebunkport lately (Mother Nature, keep up the good work!), and a few nights ago was no exception, so we decided to head to Old Vines Wine Bar for dinner.  While its roots were originally as a wine bar, featuring a few delightful nibbles, the repertoire has expanded greatly.  The assortment of wines has stayed large and excellent, the menu now includes a full bar.  And in addition to cured meats and cheeses, you can now order… Read More
