The Rittenhouse Hotel is hosting its first-ever cellar tasting event. On Sunday, January 31st from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., the hotel is opening its wine cellar for a tasting of 50 specially selected wines. And the event is just $55 per person.

The wines have been selected by Wine Director and Advanced Sommelier Justin Timsit. Timsit tells us, “this is an event that brings people together to experience the depth of our award-winning cellar, which we have worked so hard to build over the last several years.” Wines will come from the most historic regions of wine to the most uncharted terroir, from old world to new.

Tickets were sold out but a limited number were just released, so act now.
