Rick and I are happy to announce that our general manager, James Warwick, has purchased an equity stake in Old Vines.
A native of greater London, James first came to the Kennebunks in 2013, gaining valuable experience at The White Barn Inn and Striper’s Waterfront Restaurant before joining Old Vines in March, 2015.
Over the past three years, James has been instrumental in the evolution of Old Vines. Under his leadership, we have expanded our dinner menu, continued our tradition of fine wine and craft cocktails, and have hosted a wide array of private parties and unique events.
James is behind our popular weekly industry night (where we recognize our fellow restaurant industry friends with a 50% discount) as well as wine tastings, “get behind the bar” cocktail classes, and our themed family wine dinners. More great things are planned for 2018.
We are very proud of our entire team. From the kitchen to the front of the house, our exceptional employees are dedicated to delighting our guests. And James is the glue that keeps our team together. Rick and I couldn’t be happier to have him as a business partner.
