Wine Classes


Join us for a wine class!  These fun and educational experiences are hosted at the standing high-top tables in the front of the restaurant, the Enoteca. Each class includes tastes of five wines (three reds and two whites, unless otherwise noted) and lasts approximately 90 minutes. To complement our selection of wines, classes include the chef’s selection of artisanal cheeses and house-cured meats. All classes are led by a Sommelier from OTTO’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic wine team.
Please be advised that class prices are exclusive of gratuity, 3% admin fee and tax.

To make a reservation in a public wine class, please email or call the restaurant at 212.995.9559. 

Saturday Afternoon Classes at 2:00pm  

Stuck in the Middle, $60 – July 7th
From the hills of Tuscany to the beautiful coast of Lazio, we’ll be taking a look into the central region of Italy. We will not only discuss what grapes they are using, but more importantly how their specific climates affect the wine as a whole.

What’s in Your Glass, $75 – July 21st
Ever wonder why your wine tastes like buttered popcorn? Or why a wine can taste “barnyardy”? Or even like leather and tobacco? This will be an in-depth class on what techniques wine makers use to achieve certain flavors.

The Start of Bastianich Wines, $60 – July 28th
Over the years within their growing empire, you stop to think about what has come to make Joe’s restaurants so successful. It’s the warmth of the service, high quality of food, and of course, great wine to go along with these two. In this class we’ll dive into Joe Bastianich’s start in the wine world and taste some of his wines that have truly made him a success.
