Haley Fortier

Owner-operator

"class clown"

Haley Fortier magically appeared in a small town called Woodsville, NH in 1977. Upon spreading her wings and relocating to Boston in 1997,  she has worked as a circus clown, a breakdancer and a professional carrier pigeon trainer.
Although we all wish this to be true, none of it is.

Haley Fortier brings over 10+ years of hospitality industry experience to the business, most recently finishing up her 7.5 year tenure working for Barbara Lynch at Sportello Restaurant in Fort Point Channel. Her passion for food & wine gave her the momentum and motivation to open a wine bar in Downtown Crossing in 2016. Her personality will hopefully keep it alive for many years to come.
A real t-shirt & jeans type of gal, Haley enjoys sipping a dirty martini seaside. Her dog often mistakes her for a much taller, less hairier dog and she wears a size 11 shoe.
