Wine lovers: Sample away thanks to new offers, events at Wine Time

We promise: You won’t find a cozier place to have a glass of wine – or a better selection.

And now, even the prices are better at Wine Time on Main.

Happy hour has been expanded to 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, when you can take 20 percent off wines by the glass and 30 percent off wines by the bottle.

“We wanted to give people a reason to stop in any day and maybe try a wine they might not have selected without a little extra incentive,” owner Bob Novak said.

So what might be a good pour with your percentage off?

We asked the expert.

“I would definitely consider a Jayson Cabernet, the Anderson Conn Valley Cabernet or the Pahlmeyer Chardonnay,” Novak said.

“These are wines people love. They’re not any everyday wine, but when you can take 30 percent off a bottle, it becomes a very good buy.”

Add a signature Wine Time cheese and charcuterie tray to your happy hour and you might even decide to skip dinner.

“We’ve switched out a couple meats recently, and we’ve got seven rotating cheeses and typically use five, so it’s a really good selection, plus we’ll add dried cherries, nuts and our pheasant pate, which is a perfect choice for the season,” Novak said.

Feeling flighty?

If looking at 180 wines by the glass on the Wine Time menu makes it too hard to choose just one, you’re going to love the wine bar’s new approach to flights.

You can choose any three wines for a flight, which is 3 ounces per wine, and when you do, you’ll save 10 percent.

“We’ll always help suggest wines for flights too, but when we asked our customers online, half wanted to pick their own and half wanted to have us choose, so this allows us to do both,” Novak said.

Mark your calendar

Wine Time’s special events always fill up fast, but these likely will be super popular, so get your reservation in now.

On Nov. 20, Wine Time will work with the Minnehaha Country Club to pair wines with traditional holiday foods. Country club chefs will prepare 2-ounce portions of turkey and stuffing, ham and scalloped potatoes, and prime rib and Yorkshire pudding, and Wine Time will introduce wines to pair with each. There even will be single-bite pies to finish off the experience.

Then on Dec. 4, Wine Time will go upstairs to the top-floor community lounge at Washington Square to do a cheese and champagne pairing event.

“It’s just a beautiful view up there, and we’ll sample six super nice champagnes,” Novak said.

Holiday planning

And because holiday gifting time will be here before we know it, you’ll want to know about the fantastic gift options Wine Time has to offer.

“We can do a gift basket from $59 to $800, it just depends what you want to put in it,” Novak said. “We’ll offer a great off-sale price on a bottle, we usually do two glasses, a wine opener and chocolates.”

Or add a Coravin for a gift that’s sure to be a hit.

“Our Coravins have been extremely popular. It’s an ideal gift for any wine lover, allowing them to perfectly preserve their bottles and enjoy every drop,” Novak said. “These as well as the baskets are great options for client gifts, hostess gifts or any wine lover in your life.”
