Let’s pop some bottles—it’s Philly Wine Week. The annual festival boasts specials and events at over 50 locations in the city. And no matter whether you’re a wine connoisseur or a newbie, the week has the perfect event for you. 

Here’s your guide to all the action: 

5th Annual Wine Week BBQ

American Sardine Bar

April 7, 3–10 p.m.

If you’re looking for the perfect Sunday afternoon activity look no further. This restaurant is kicking off it’s outdoor garden season by throwing it’s annual celebration, including barbecue, fire pits, and of course, wine. 


Fried Chicken & Champagne

Hungry Pigeon

April 7, 5–11 p.m.

Two good things equal a great night. Hungry Pigeon is known as a brunch spot, but for one day a year it serves fried chicken alongside champagne. It’s an unexpected combo, but it definitely works—it’s one of the most popular events of the week. 



Tours of Italy

Amis Trattoria

All Week Long

The best way to work on your wine knowledge is just to drink it, and that’s definitely possible at Amis. They’re featuring wines from a different part of Italy each night of the week, as well as food specials inspired by the regions. 


Wine Flight

High Street on Market

All Week Long

This classy spot in Old City is featuring special deals the entire week. Each night they’ll have a selection of rotating wine flights, as well as special mysteries and prizes. Plus, on Friday night they’re offering a four course menu featuring local cheeses to be paired with the wine from Maple Springs, a Pennsylvania vineyard. 


Rose All Day

Bar Amis

All Week Long

Rose is a fan favorite, so Bar Amis, located in Philly Navy Yard, will be featuring the drink for only $6 a glass. Even better, for only $3 you can get an early spring treat with their frosé (frozen rosé). 

So get out there and make toast to a week of fun—you may even come back to campus using new wine terminology like “robust” and “smoky.”
