Anniversary Week Ends Saturday with “Wine Thing”

We’re packing in a ton of events to celebrate our 10th anniversary, but the big event—our “closing ceremony” of sorts—is rolling out “Wine Thing” on Saturday from noon until 3 p.m. Our goal this week has been to recognize the people and factors that have helped put Carpe Vino on the map, and Wine Thing is our signature wine tasting.

Jack Arns, flanked by Gary and Drew, was honored last Thursday evening as the first inductee into the Carpe Vino Hall of Fame. The wine bar was packed with friends who all agreed: no one was more deserving of the recognition than Jack Arns, whose name is now immortalized on a brass plaque affixed to a bar stool.

We normally host a single Wine Thing each year, always at the end of January or early February. We invite our best distributors and brokers to pour a variety of wines, in terms of varietals, wine regions and price points.

Typically, we open more than 75 bottles, serve palate refreshers and offer discounts ranging up to 24% when you purchase at least two cases, mix & match. This formula has worked brilliantly over the years, introducing new wines into the shop and offering up big savings for customers.

Free Admission When You Join the Wine Club

If you are not a Wine Club member, now is the best time to join. Admission to Wine Thing is $25 per person, but if you join now, you and a guest get in for a free, a savings of $50. Also, wine club members can enter the building at noon; all other guests are invited to join us at 1 p.m.

It does not cost anything to join, and you can cancel at any time. There are many club options in wine selections and cost; just click here for details.

We’ve got some fabulous wines being poured Saturday, so come out and enjoy our final event of the week!

Note: the restaurant will be closed Saturday night. Immediately following the tasting, we’ll be setting up for a staff-only party, so we will not be open for dinner service.
