Merry with Sherry at Jet Wine Bar

Some wines are just misunderstood. Does that mean we should stash them in the back of our liquor cabinets or give them away at office parties to that secret santa we’re not really friendly with? No, it means we should try and understand them.

On Tuesday, December 11th, Jet Wine Bar is helping us understand the likes of sherry, one of these misunderstood gems, through an installment of their Global Vineyards Passport Tasting Series. From 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m., guests can enjoy an educational tasting of sherry with Spanish wine expert Eric Lopez. $25 gets you the class, small bites and a 15% discount off the post-class bar tab.

On Tuesday August 14th from 6:30-8:30pm Jet Wine Bar is holding a $25 wine tasting emphasizing the difference between similar wines created across different borders. The tasting, part of their Global Passport Tasting series, will compare the style, tradition, and flavor of wines from grape-growing regions that border each other. Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile and Argentina, Grenache/Garnacha from Spain and France, and Tocai Fruiliano from Italy and Slovenia will be among the wines tasted during the evening.

Tickets can be purchased here on Eventbrite.

Rex 1516 Is Coming to South Street

As we’ve previouly reported, Jet Wine Bar owners Jill Weber and Evan Malone are taking over the former Philly Kitchen Share and never was American Blackboard across the street from their South Street wine bar. Now the all-day restaurant has a name, Rex. The name is a play on the name of chef Regis Jansen.

Weber declined to provide a time frame but with the closing of the South Street location of Cafe L’Aube, the block needs a morning option.

Progressive Happy Hour

Fish and Jet Wine Bar are not interested in letting the Summer of Riesling go out with a wimper. Tonight the neighboring establishments are combining for a progressive happy hour.

Tonight you can begin your Riesling happiness at Fish at 9 p.m., then at 10 p.m. walk the .2 miles to Jet for more Riesling deals. Both spots will also be offering specially priced bar snacks.
