THE COLUMBUS DAY WINE DOWN IS SOLD OUT. 

JOIN US NEXT TIME AT THE WINE DOWN HOLIDAY PARTY, WED. DEC 2ND, 2009.



Welcome back to WINE DOWN, New York City’s Favorite Wine Tasting Party.  

Join us on Monday, October 12th for the COLUMBUS DAY WINE DOWN - Made in the USA!  Come ready to explore the classic and emerging wine regions of America and to taste through a selection of both celebrated and undiscovered wines.  Did you know that every state in the union has at least one commercial winery?

WINE DOWN is monthly cocktail-style party, hosted by Celebrity Wine Consultant Michael Green, the Wine & Spirits Consultant to Gourmet Magazine for over 19 years, featuring unlimited tastes of great wines, food supervised by Celebrity Chef Charlie Palmer, lively music, and a cool, sophisticated, and eclectic crowd. We’ve stripped away all of the pretension of traditional wine tasting events. 

WINE DOWN was selected as one of "The Best Drinking Events in NYC" by Time Out New York, and has recently been featured in New York Magazine's Grub Street, The Feedbag, Behind the Burner, Wined & Dined, The New York Daily News, and Guest of a Guest. 

How does it work?  Doors open at Astra, Celebrity Chef Charlie Palmer’s elegant special events space, at 6:00 pm.  Guests are always greeted with sparkling wine and a copy of the evening’s tasting notes, and are directed into the space to taste through the wines at their own pace and enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres supervised by Charlie Palmer’s staff.  We encourage guests to mix, mingle and make meaningful connections.

Past themes have included: “Sommelier Rock,” which featured off-the-radar wines selected by some of the nation's top sommeliers (from The Modern, The Bellagio Resort, Tribeca Grill, Landmarc, Gilt, A Voce, and Kefi); “Sipping into Summer,” which was highlighted by a collection of summer wines from around the globe and the great summer wines of Sonoma Valley; and "Talk Dirt to Me," which celebrated that "place is a taste," and showcased over twenty wines from the world's most celebrated wine regions.  

Mark your calendar for Monday, October 12th, tell your friends or bring your clients, and come ready to party!
