Downtown Providence Gets a Dedicated Wine Bar

Fortnight Wine Bar has plenty to swirl and sip on


There’s a new, experimental wine bar downtown that makes it easy to try not only a lot of wine, but a lot of different wine. Fortnight has a fun approach to the wine world, with easily digestible descriptions of each glass or bottle on their menu. Like the Mengoba Brezo Bierzo Blanco, which is described on the website as, “Rich, and waxy, and briny. Like white burgundy with a wild streak. Two big thumbs up.” It’s only wine, afterall, and wine should be fun. To accompany each pour, they’ve created a curated menu of flavorful bites like Cucumber and Carrot Rillettes, Butternut Squash Soup, Potted Lobster and Duck Stew Nicoise. And beer lovers, don’t fret. They’ve also got a small selection of beer on draught and by the bottle. 79 Dorrance Street. 572-3355
