Celebrate the 50th National Wine Week at Smith & Wollensky March 5-9, 2012. To commemorate the occasion, we are introducing the Smith & Wollensky “Private Reserve” Sauvignon Blanc. It is a crisp, elegant and fresh wine with citrus, ripe mango and melon notes. Hand-crafted by Kunde Family Estate in the Sonoma Valley, this special wine has a great balance and extremely long finish. It pairs nicely with our fresh seafood and Signature Shellfish Bouquet. The Smith & Wollensky “Private Reserve” Sauvignon Blanc is available everyday during Wine Week at all locations. Be among the first to sample this new wine.
Another first during the 50th Wine Week is a Prix Fixe 3-Course Lunch. Guests will have the choice of a starter, main course and dessert as well as the daily sampling of 10 wines for $50 per person.
During Wine Week, guests can choose to sample up to 10 different wines for $10 with the purchase of a LUNCH entrée. Wines are being carefully selected by the National Beverage Director, Stuart Roy, to perfectly complement the restaurants’ menu. Selections change daily, differ by city and include an upgraded list of both domestic and international varietals. Lunch service is offered 11:30am to 2:30pm, in all participating restaurants. Make your reservation.
