Bottles were uncorked, toasts were made, wine was sampled and savored. Friends and business colleagues gathered. The 49th National Wine Week at Smith & Wollensky, held September 12-16, was a success. Guests once again enjoyed a sampling of 10 wines for $10 with the purchase of a lunch entrée in Smith & Wollensky iconic locations nationwide. Special thanks to our Wine Week sponsors – Castello Banfi, Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery, Franciscan Estates, Rodney Strong Vineyards and Stölzle glassware.
As part of the Wine Week festivities, Smith & Wollensky hosted a drawing which included wine and wine accessories. A toast to our winners listed below. Enjoy!
