Kernowine, Falmouth

Falmouth's Kernowine is a neighbourhood wine bar, open year round, serving up coffees, cocktails and sharing boards alongside wines from Cornwall as well as further afield in the bar and shop.

Weekend Escapes
Kernowine, a cosy, neighbourhood-focused wine bar and shop, with a sustainable, ethical and local ethos is just what Falmouth’s Killigrew Street needed.
Created and run by owners Derek and Natasha, who swapped their previous careers for running a wine bar after they moved to Cornwall in 2017 (Del used to work for Radio 1’s Newsbeat) alongside managers Gemma and Kelly, Kernowine is just the place to head for a local bite to eat, to pick up a bottle, enjoy a wine-based chat (or just a solo mooch and an upgrade from your usual supermarket choice). 
Del is in charge of the wine, which makes sense, as he completed the WSET Diploma (so he knows his stuff) and then upped his game by working in a wine bar in Padstow, whereas Tash is in charge of the food, menus and cocktails.
Wines range from the £7-20 mark right up to the properly fancy bottles if you’re in the market for them, but the main thing Del does well is taking people’s current knowledge and expanding that by introducing them to similar but more unusual grape varieties and styles. Look out for the monthly wine classes which do this as part of a hosted tasting, as well as an excellent section of fizzy and sparkling wines, thanks to Del’s special area of knowledge.
Food wise, the sharing boards are a must – alongside wine by the glass, or paying the drink in price for a bottle from the shelf, fill up on a surfboard (fish), turfboard (meat), earthboard (vegan), cheese board or dessert board. Most of the produce on the boards comes from Cornwall using local suppliers, served with Cornish crackers or Coombeshead Farm bread and Cornish butter.
Open from 11am coffee right through to late-night drinks, alongside the wine bar/food is a wine shop, where you can choose a bottle from the shelf, or from one of four or five options using a refill tap for your own bottle!
Not local? Buy online through the website and your purchase is still sustainable – your wine will be delivered using Flexi-Hex packaging, another Cornish supplier, which is cleverly designed to cushion the wine bottles in cardboard and air.
Very local? Deliveroo in Falmouth will deliver all your wine needs…
