  • The new Veritas Wine Bar will open at Alexander Park, located at 217 Alexander Street. The wine bar is co-owned and operated by Paul and Amy Powers.
    “We began exploring wine in the late '90s when we were living in New York City,” said Amy Powers. “After returning to Rochester in 2001, we both worked at Wine Sense on Park Avenue where our education began in earnest.  It was during this time that we began to dream of opening a wine bar. To further our knowledge in wine and the industry, we took jobs in wine sales and distribution.”
    A grand opening will be held on Friday, Aug. 17.
    Veritas Wine Bar serves wine by the glass and bottle from all around the world as well as bottled craft beers.
    “Our current list includes over twenty wines by the glass and over 100 by the bottle, and will continually change,” said Paul Powers.
    In addition to standard full glass pours, Veritas offers ½ glass pours, giving customers the opportunity to explore through their wide variety of wines. Additionally, Veritas has teamed up with local specialty shops to offer edibles from Gifted Foods, Pittsford Dairy and Bakery Street Bakery.
    Veritas will also host ‘Nerd Nite,’ an internationally recognized event where self-declared nerds gather to meet, drink and learn something new. Veritas host its first ‘Nerd Nite’ on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
    Veritas will also hold monthly wine education classes, with guest speakers and specialty wine tastings.
    Veritas Wine Bar is open Tuesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. For more information visit http://www.facebook.com/VeritasRochester.
