Wine Tastings & Tours
Tastings, Tours and More.
Wine. It’s the first word in our name. And the center of everything we do. Whether it’s our state-of-the-art wine storage facility, our acclaimed wine list and wine shop, or our highly- awarded French restaurant, wine is clearly our passion. And a passion we love to share with our guests by offering frequent wine tastings and private wine tours of the finest wine regions in the world.
At The WineSellar & Brasserie, we love to introduce our customers to new wines and reacquaint them with old favorites. To this extent, we offer several types of wine tasting events throughout the week, month and year. Every Wednesday, you can enjoy tastings with friends in our downstairs casual side wine bar. On Saturdays, test your wine skills with blind tastings in our upstairs Brasserie and treat yourself to a specially paired entrée for lunch. Special walk around tastings of 15 to 20 different wines are also frequently scheduled and a great way to discover new wines and new favorites. And every six to eight weeks, join us for a special winemaker dinner, where you can meet the vintners and owners of exceptional wineries while tasting and dining in the Brasserie. For more information on regular WineSellar Tasting events click here.
We also love to introduce our customers to exceptional vintners in their own surroundings…at their wineries. So, every 12 to 18 months, we offer the opportunity to tour one of the great wine regions of the world with The WineSellar. These private, small group tours, only 14 people, are expertly defined and arranged by The WineSellar to explore and experience the very best the region has to offer. Great tours, great wine, great food and great fun… it’s a trip you surely won’t forget. Previous tours included the premier wine regions of France, Italy, Spain, South Africa, New Zealand, Argentina and more. The Loire Valley of France was the destination of the 2014 Wine and Champagne Tour. So make plans to join The WineSellar and fellow wine lovers on our next great tour.
Two Italy Wine Tours in 2015
There has been so much interest in doing a wine tour in Italy that this year we’ve decided to do two. The first tour, August 30 - September 11th, begins in Croatia/Slovenia (great wines/beautiful country), travels through Northern Italy and finishes in Lake Como (fly out of Milan). The second tour, September 14 - September 26th (fly into Milan) travels through Piedmont, down the gorgeous Bolgheri Coast and includes special parts of Tuscany (fly out of Rome).
Both tours are going to be very special. We are calling them "Undisclosed Italy," as we are not only going to go to the "can't-be-missed" wineries, restaurants, sights and areas ... but also to unique places rarely seen by tourists. Both tours are a mixture of new, happening, hidden, and/or upcoming places that we've found for our WineSellar & Brasserie tour go'ers! So, even if you may have been to these areas before ... you are sure to experience new and exciting tastes, sights, and delights!
If you are interested in either tour, please contact Lori Parker at Lparker@winesellar.com for more details. If you think you'd like to join us, on one of the tours, we may still have space available at this time. We look forward to hearing from you! Ciao!
