“HONESTLY, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE WINE,” says Sarah Knaus, the owner of Highland’s newest art/nosh/wine spot. In late December, she and her daughter, Nisa (chef/co-owner), opened Knaus Gallery & Wine Bar to bring a multi-sensual experience to the area. “We really want to represent local artists, while also providing visitors with a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy the art,” Sarah says. Nisa’s menu will stress seasonal and local products. A self-taught chef, she says her dishes are “comfort food,” inspired by how she and her mom eat at home: vegetarian soups, home-made flatbreads, house-made hummus, smoked salmon and trout, and daily cheese and charcuterie boards featuring homemade wine crackers from local baker Jennifer Dellerba. The wine list is expansive and a point of pride for Sarah. “My wine lists have always been very well rounded,” she stresses. “I like to find really good, affordable but high quality wines from all over the world.” Also offered are lunch specials, wine-and-cheese pairings and flights of wine.
