Hello friends! Yes… it’s time to start planning New Year’s Eve already. 

No… you cannot just order a pizza and drink a bottle of wine on your couch.
Instead of opting to couch it up in your college hoodie, or cram into a nightclub you don’t like and drinking champagne you don’t like while being smushed next to someone you don’t know…

 let Chef Lonnie cook you a special NYE dinner in your neighborhood spot amongst your people.

Here’s the setup:

6:00 seating $65 per person, $95 with wine pairings. (20% service charge and DC sales tax will be added).

9:00 seating $75 per person, $105 with wine pairings. (20% service charge and DC sales tax will be added). Second seating also reserves table through midnight and includes sparkling wine toast and party favors.

Spaces are limited, so stick to your resolution for the year and don’t procrastinate on this one. Give us a call at 202.332.9463 to reserve your spot for dinner. OpenTable reservations can also be made through our website. Thanks in advance and we look forward to spending the big night with many of you all!

As another December rolls along, we wanted to pass along word that our annual holiday gift giveaway is in full swing. As a reminder to the initiated, or an insider tip for the newbies, each December, we give out gifts to those joining us for dinner in the form of sealed envelopes. Each envelope contains a gift of some sort, ranging from a free bottle of wine to a $100 gift card or a free wine class for two. 

The catch, is the gifts can only be redeemed if the sealed envelope is brought back to Vinoteca in January 2015. At that time you may open your gift and redeem your special something. The gist is… we like you all. And not only do we want to see you soon, but we want you to promise to come back next year, too!
Stop by anytime this month to receive your gift.
