Philly Wine Week will return for the sixth year this spring. The city-wide celebration of wine will kick off with Opening Corks on Sunday, March 31.

Opening Corks takes place in a different venue each year. This time, the location is XIX at The Bellevue.
A VIP option is also available for $125. VIP guests will be invited to enter early at 5 p.m., and will have access to an exclusive sparkling wine bar, raw bar, deluxe passed hors d’oeuvres from Walnut Street Café and XIX, and bites prepared by guest chefs in a semi-private lounge.
Philly Wine Week will run from Monday, April 1, through Sunday, April 7. During the week, there will be wine-centric events at different bars and restaurants, such as Tria, Jet Wine Bar, Royal Boucherie and Bud & Marilyn's. The full list of things to do will be announced soon.
