Two local restaurateurs have decided to bring a little passion, a little culture and 500 different bottles of flavor to Indianapolis. D'Vine a wine bar recently opened at 2727 E. 86th St., Suite 232. D'Vine features appetizers, such as this bruschetta sampler plate.
Bennet Ackerman, seven-year owner of the Indianapolis Melting Pot, and Brian Fowler, former general manager of Oakley's Bistro, felt that the city was ripe for their innovative new venture, D'Vine a wine bar. "We want to share our passion for wine with not only those that are already wine 'connoisseurs,'" Ackerman said. "But also with those that want to learn more about wine."
Boasting a bicoastal, elegant and unique menu of appetizers and desserts along with the boldest and widest selection of wine this side of a vineyard, Ackerman and Fowler hope to demystify wine and make it fun and accessible to everyone that gathers together at D'Vine.
D'Vine is open Wednesday-Sunday, 4 p.m.-close. For more information: 317-466-1117, www.dvineawinebar.com.
