Visit two premium wine destinations in SoHo during your wine-tasting walking tour. At each stop, sample world-class wines matched with delicious cuisine while your expert guide and winemaker hosts share tips on selecting, tasting and pairing wines. Enjoy customized attention as you discover great restaurants and wine shops and learn about wine history. Get the inside scoop on how to find good values on a restaurant wine list, and even how to ask for a discount!
Expect to walk around a half mile (0.8 km) total at a leisurely pace between tasting locations. At each destination, the friendly staff greets you and shows you to your private table for the tasting. It is recommended that you wear comfortable, dressy-casual clothing and shoes.
Your first stop is Galli where you will savor delicious Italian or Spanish wines and Italian comfort food pairings. Learn the basics of tasting wine and pairing it with complementary foods as you snack on grilled calamari or mozzarella with tomatoes, accompanied by two glasses of wine.
Your second stop will be at a second sensational restaurant in the heart of SoHo, Spring Street Natural. Spring Street Natural was founded when terms such as farm to table, locavore, and organic were virtually unheard of in relation to food and dining. You are guaranteed to enjoy more delicious wine and food pairings as your guide discusses the art of selecting, tasting, and pairing fine wines. Your tour will conclude after 2 hours, at which time you'll be free to enjoy another glass, hit the town, or test your newfound knowledge at a local wine shop.
