Wine Bar to Join Thornes

NORTHAMPTON — As a restaurant consultant in New York City during the 2000s, Caroline McDaniel watched dozens of wine bars open in the Big Apple.  The Smith College graduate, who at the time frequently returned to Northampton for regular haircuts, started telling anyone who would listen that the concept would be a perfect fit for Paradise City. But when the calendar flipped to 2014 and no one had taken a stab at the business concept, McDaniel decided not to wait any longer — she began planning to do it herself.

 

“I kept waiting for the wine bar to come, but 14 years after the trend started in New York, here I am,” said McDaniel, who moved back to Northampton in 2012.

 

As she spoke one day last week in the basement of Thornes Marketplace, construction crews swirled around her working to strip paint off the walls, clean floors and complete dozens of other tasks in the space that formerly housed Dynamite Records. It’s in this 2,600-square-foot space that McDaniel intends to open the wine bar under the name ConVino, which stands for “with wine.”

 

The bar will feature between 60 and 80 types of wine from throughout the world, 30 of which will be sold by the glass and the balance by the bottle.

 

She is hoping to be open by Thanksgiving.
