WINE NOT?

Philadelphia Style - - Contents -

See, swirl, sniff, sip, and sa­vor spring’s best bot­tles dur­ing Philly Wine Week.

ONE WINE AT A TINE

Fork, a mainstay of Philly din­ing for nearly two decades, has, in the past few years, be­come a na­tion­ally lauded des­ti­na­tion. No won­der: The food here is noth­ing short of stun­ning, and the wine pro­gram, fea­tur­ing such stel­lar bot­tles as the Olga Raf­fault Les Pi­cas­ses Chi­non 2010 and the Cham­pagne Colin Cu­vée Al­liance, works along­side the vi­sion of the kitchen im­pec­ca­bly. 306 Mar­ket St., 215-625-9425; forkrestau­rant.com

Jamonera is one of Philly’s finest homages to the glories of Iberian cui­sine—not to men­tion a wine and sherry pro­gram that’s a study in Span­ish grapes. For Wine Week, we love the R. López de Here­dia Viña Gravo­nia Cri­anza 2003, a white wine for white-wine skep­tics, or the Rotl­lan Torra 2012 from Pri­o­rat. Also look for spe­cial Wine Week events, like a din­ner with 10 tapas and sparkling-wine pair­ings. 105 S. 13th St., 215-922-6061; ja­moner­arestau­rant.com

JAMONERA IS ONE OF PHILLY’S FINEST HOMAGES TO THE GLORIES OF IBERIAN CUI­SINE.
