When it comes to exciting wine bars, Brooklyn is on the up. A new wave of wine-obsessed buyers and bar-restaurant owners has forsaken the insipid, the safe, and the homogenous for glasses of singular vino from lesser-known regions and producers. Most of our favorite wine bars in Brooklyn are a bit off the beaten track, and that is part of the charm.

Anfora is not a wine bar I'd recommend to everyone. If you like wine as the background music to a nice meal, and you're happiest with your regular Shiraz, you may be turned off. But if you're a little tired of everyday sipping and you want wine to surprise you, if you're willing to get a little dirty and a little funky, if you like your cheeses smelly, your chocolate salty, and your palate stretched a bit, then Anfora is the wine bar for you.
