Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group Unveils All-New Steak & Wine Month

From our friends at Smith & Wollensky...

Wine Week is Spilling into Wine Month

The Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group (SWRG) is excited to announce an all-new Steak & Wine Month. Celebrated during the month of September, Steak & Wine Month will feature premium flights of both red and white wines, Cellar Steals and our traditional National Wine Week.

Steak & Wine Month is an opportunity for wine and steak enthusiasts to sample a variety of super-premium wines carefully selected to complement the Smith & Wollensky award-winning menu. Throughout the month, Smith & Wollensky locations will offer two super-premium wine flights rated 90 points or higher by Wine Spectator, one red and one white, along with Cellar Steals, select wines by the glass and bottle, from our award-winning wine library offered at unprecedented prices.

During the National Wine Week celebration, September 14-18, Smith & Wollensky is preparing to serve up to 25,000 glasses of wine from some of the world’s most exclusive winemakers. Smith & Wollensky patrons will be able to sample 8 super-premium wines rated 90 points or higher for $25 with the purchase of a lunch entree. Selections are customized to each location and will change daily. Kick-start your week by visiting on Monday or Tuesday where some of the finest featured wines will be poured. New this year, the Smith & Wollensky Boston Back Bay location will offer the Wine Week sampling during dinner, where all other locations will celebrate at lunch.

“We’re so excited to launch the all-new Steak & Wine Month. In addition to celebrating National Wine Week, we wanted to offer guests more opportunities to experience a variety of wines most people don’t have the opportunity to taste every day, through our Cellar Steals” commented Joe O’Brien, Director of Operations for SWRG. “Guests can also sample two new steak presentations, including a Stout Sirloin and Tuna au Poivre, available throughout the month of September.”

Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group will continue its support to raise awareness and help the millions of Americans affected by neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. Proceeds from National Wine Week will benefit Keep Memory Alive and the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
