A favorite Henderson Avenue wine bar shutters this March.
After 15 years, Veritas Wine Room will close at the end of March. The news was announced by co-owner Bradley Anderson on Facebook stating that “After nearly 15 years of amazing wine and food experiences, the time has come to raise a glass and close the doors on this beautiful adventure. This era has been more rewarding, more fun, more meaningful, and even longer lived than we could have ever imagined when we opened all those years and experiences ago.” The local spot will not go out quietly though as they are hosting guided tastings, supper clubs with local chefs, and more over the next few months.
