Our highest rated event, Volo's Annual Holiday Champagne & Sparkling Tasting, is the perfect opportunity to discover great bottles and different styles of boutique sparkling perfect to celebrate with, bring to any holiday gathering, or give as a special gift.
Call your friends and enjoy the holiday cheer at Volo Wine Bar when we will be tasting high quality selections (with great alternatives to pricey Champagnes perfect for your budget), that you can enjoy giving, receiving, or just drinking through the holidays with recommendations on traditional food and wine pairings to go with your celebration, as well as assisting with ideas for giving the gift of great wine this holiday.
Chef/Partner Stephen Dunne & Wine Director Shad Martin have once again collaborated on a menu of gourmet bites that pair effortlessly with everything bubbly for what is sure to be another dynamic event full of exciting wines, delicious food, and good friends. Sample eight sparkling selections while you enjoy our cozy indoor bar/dining room and enclosed/heated cabana patio. What could be better than enjoying great wines with friends in a wonderful atmosphere while you can get some holiday shopping done at the same time (did we mention that Volo Gift Certificates make a great stocking stuffer?).
