Celebrate with the wine community of Philadelphia as we gear up for a big week of exciting wine and food events across Philadelphia. At Opening Corks, wine lovers can sample hundreds of unique, delicious, and hard-to-find wines, poured by the winemakers and Importers themselves, taste a variety of wine-friendly foods from Philadelphia’s most popular chefs and restaurants, and mingle with other Wine-Os! This exclusive and festive event is a first “taste” of what’s to come over the week-long, city-wide celebration of wine that is Philly Wine Week 2018.

Due to inclement weather, our host venue, the 23rd Street Armory, an active headquarters for military trucks and personnel that must be prepared for state emergencies including snow storms, is unavailable for our Opening Corks event onThursday, March 22, 2018. We were excited to host our kickoff party there, but we must adhere to emergency policies and the city’s safety is of the utmost importance to us. After the weather subsides, we still hope to drink wine and eat good food with all our friends tomorrow, so we’re moving our event to a new location: VIE at 600 N. Broad Street. The date, time and all other exciting details, will remain the same. Some tickets are still available at LINK. See you tomorrowat Opening Corks 2018 at VIE!
