Wine is the name of the game for a full week as the city welcomes the first-ever Philly Wine Week from March 23 to 30.
For its inaugural year, Philly Wine Week promises wine-centric events at some of the city’s most popular bars and restaurants.
The party kicks off on Sunday, March 23 at Ristorante Panorama with Bubbles and Barrels, an opening night party featuring sparkling wines, light bites and meet and greets with sommeliers, all while raising money for the Pennsylvania Animal Welfare Society.
Tickets are $40 per person and are available online.
Over the course of the week, The German Society of Pennsylvania hosts a wine tasting course, Vintage Wine Bar puts your brain to the test with wine quizzo, Jamonera presents a Spanish wine dinner, Tria Taproom invites guests in for wine-centric lunches, Jet Wine Bar promises local wines, Alla Spina brings in a winemaker for happy hour… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Every night of the event, with the exception of the last two nights, the public and Wine Week guests are encouraged to gather at a rotating bar for the “Toast at Ten,” an opportunity for wine buffs to come together and raise a glass.
Philly Wine Week ends with a party at Alla Spina on Sunday, March 30.
Raise a glass, folks, wine will be flowing all week long.
