Have fun learning about wine on a sommelier lead two hour walking wine tour through NYC's Lower East Side. You'll visit two restaurants and one wine shop while learning everything from food and wine pairing to blind tasting techniques.
You'll taste and learn from two wines at each stop, while enjoying deliciously prepared bites with food and wine pairing in mind. Our last stop is a well curated wine shop where you'll learn how to read wine labels, the best regions for value as well as enjoy a 10% discount on all wine purchases!Six wines plus delicious bites is certainly a two hour tour to remember! Our first stop is Cafe Katja! This Michelin recommended Austrian restaurant is a true gem on the LES. Experience the elegance and complexity of our first pairing of Szigeti sparkling Gruner Veltliner as paired with a creamy Austrian pâté. The following pairing is a traditional Croatian pairing of Teran and pork. Chef Schröttner's take is the braised pork belly Rueben sandwich. Our next stop takes us from Austria to Mykonos, Greece at Souvlaki. It's here that we learn about the ancient world and taste two wines made from grapes older than the old world! These delicious wines, made from the grapes Malagousia and Agioritiko are the perfect accompaniment to the delicious assorted meze plates served at the #1 Greek restaurant in the LES!Our last stop is Bowery and Vine. Here you'll learn everything from reading wine labels and getting the best wines for value to how to open a bottle of wines properly. You can enjoy a 10% discount on all wines at this stop and your sommelier guide will be more than happy to assist you while you shop if you wish.
