Meet the Dare Duo

Bonjour — Hello!

We believe in savoring and sharing moments. The time and place where family and friends can slow down, connect and celebrate together make up our favorite moments in life, and we often find a beautiful glass of wine or delicious bite accompanies these moments best! We believe that what we eat and drink is an essential part of that experience, and what we strive to share with our customers at Dare. Since 2021, we are a place where dinner, party and gifting provisions thrive!

We celebrate the thirst for wines that represent place and maker, regionally-focused craft beers, artisanal ciders, exciting non-alcoholic beverages, and hunger for an elevated selection of food items.

Our retail wine selection is rooted in organically farmed grapes, small-production low-intervention wines made with love for taste and the environment by independent winemakers around the world.

Our craft beers and ciders are sourced from brewers and farmers in the Northeast region of the US.

We proudly sell fresh loaves of naturally-leavened Creature Bread (Mill River, MA) every Friday and Saturday @ our Lenox location.

Our pantry shelves and fridges are filled with products that represent what we value most; craftsmanship and social & environmental consciousness, products made by hand, by happy people.

Quite simply, we know quality, and will not stock any products that do not meet our taste, sourcing and production standards.
Stop in and see what we’re all about. Find us at 11 Housatonic Street in Lenox, MA. and 28 Railroad Street in Great Barrington, MA.

We see you, we value you! Thank you for buying local and supporting our family business.
