Rare and Fine Wine Tasting: Bottled Art U N C O R K E D

Saturday, November 15, 2014

(2 hour tastings available from 12-6PM)


Bottled Art Uncorked Logo

Have you ever visited DCanter and wondered what many of the wines in our Tasting Room actual taste like? It’s a section of our wine portfolio that we affectionately refer to as “Bottled Art,” not the least because the winemakers who craft these unique beverages have painstakingly nurtured these wines into existence. Some of the wines are rare and limited in numbers, some are justly famous because of their region, and all are crafted by well-regarded winemakers.

Now is your chance to try many of these wines. For one day only, many of our Bottled Art selections will be UNCORKED, just for you. It’s a rare opportunity to try a wide selection of wines that would otherwise be reserved for a special occasion. Join us to experience single vineyard bottlings, premier crus, and some exclusive finds available only at DCanter.  This is a tasting experience you won’t want to miss!


Before or On Nov. 5th – Early Bird Admission: $20.00 per person (plus tax and fees)

After Nov. 5th – Regular Admission: $35.00 per person (plus tax and fees)
