LA’s BottleRock hosts two more 2006 champagne tastings - and a New Year’s Eve Bash!
There are only two Fridays left for the champagne countdown to the New Year! In case you haven’t visited Culver City’s newest winebar, this is the perfect opportunity! Bottlerock has been getting a lot of buzz, and all I can say is that I’ve already waited too long to check it out!
The next two Friday Champagne Tastings take place from 6:00– 8:00 pm on:
December 22 – Comte Audoin de Dampierre
December 29 – Selection of Champagne and sparkling wine
Also… are you looking for something fun to do on New Year’s Eve? Earlybirds can nibble on Bottlerock’s a la carte menu, available from 4– 10 pm. Those looking to toast the midnight hour may want to stay for the New Year’s Eve party (10 pm – 1 am) which features music, small plates and an open wine bar for $50 in advance, and $60 at the door. Talk about a loud pop for a small cork! (bang for the buck… nevermind…) What I mean is that Bottlerock is on my list of NYE options!
Co-owned by wine consultant, Adam Fleischman, and Fred Hakim (who also owns Santa Monica’s Fireside Cellars wine shop), Bottlerock is a combination wine retailer, tasting room and small plates café. Boasting over 800 wine labels ranging in price from $5 to over $600 per bottle, BottleRock complements the beverages with artisanal cheeses, charcuterie and gourmet chocolates. A wide range of beer and sake are also showcased.
(insider tip: Any bottle of wine in the store, regardless of price, will be opened for tasting as long as two glasses are purchased.)
Customized group tastings, educational wine and beer events and consulting on wine pairings are available. (Still holiday shopping? Sounds like a great place to purchase a gift certificate for just about anyone!)
