The holidays are a time to come together with the special people in our lives who we don’t see often enough throughout the year. This season, ditch the typical holiday happy hour, break tradition, and think outside the box. Spice up your seasonal get together with some festive fare and a healthy dose of holiday spirits. Wine tastings at Osteria Mattone are a stylish way to gather your closest friends, family, or co-workers this holiday season.
Nestled in the heart of Osteria Mattone is an intimate wine room stocked wall to wall with dozens of bottles, each of which have been hand-selected by in-house sommelier, Dan Pernice. To develop the wine collection at Osteria Mattone, Dan coupled his knowledge from the James Beard Award-winning wine program at The Modern in New York City with his time spent in Italy, all while following a simple, guiding principle: the wine has to match the cuisine. This is the same fundamental idea behind Osteria Mattone’s wine tastings.
Bundle up (the wine room is kept at a chilly 62° !) and cozy up to a group of your friends, family, or co-workers for a night of eating, drinking, and being merry. Osteria Mattone currently offers three Wine Tasting Packages, each of which include carefully curated wine and food pairings.
