IMG_0310Wine events are everywhere in every city and it can be tough to decipher the good ones vs. the ones where you’re really going just to get a little more than tipsy. If you want to attend some fun, stylish, and educational events where you can leave with the wine or wines you loved, then check out the Chelsea Wine Vault. One of Somm In The City’s newest partners is this boutique but large (for NYC) wine store located in The Chelsea Market (75 ninth avenue).

Recently CWV held their annual Rosé Riot. This very pink rosé inspired event was full of wine lovers who enjoyed tons of rosé that evening.

” Dozens waited in line outside the store and it was a treasure to see so many thirsty wine lovers getting anxious…knowing tables upon tables filled with rosé awaited them.”

Knowledgable staff eager to help and brand representatives pouring their portfolio’s best was just part of the evening. The music was on, the shop beautifully decorated, and a spread of delicious Chelsea Market nibbles were all around. Tickets sold for $35.00/pp which is a steal considering how many wines were being poured and tasted.
