Planning Ahead: Philly Wine Week is Coming


I feel the way about Wine Week that I do about Valentine’s Day. Why celebrate for just one day (or week, in this case) something that you really love and cherish all year? If you really set your mind to it, every week can be Wine Week.

But for those of you who need a little more guidance in your oenophilia, the second annual Philly Wine Week starts on Sunday, March 22 and will last until Sunday, March 29.

Wine Week is kicking off with an “Opening Corks” Gala on the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 5-8pm. The event is, “a spirited tasting gala featuring premium sparkling and white wines, as well as a selection of rosés.” Tickets are $75 each and can be purchased here.

Philly Wine Week is also holding Wine at Nine events throughout the city at (you guessed it) 9 pm. Participants include many of the city’s best wine bars and restaurants, like Alla Spina, A.Kitchen, Amada, Barbuzzo, Jamonera,Vedge, and Vetri.
