Cucina Wine Bar in the Avenues has always been a special spot to enjoy first-rate cuisine and great wines to go with it. That’s never more true than now, since Cucina owner Dean Pierose has launched a new winter wine menu and the list has some real gems on it.
First, I’m impressed by how many wines at Cucina are offered by the glass. More than half of the wines sold by the bottle at Cucina can also be ordered by the glass. And that runs the gamut from bubbles like Maresina Prosecco and Rock Wall Blanc de Blanc to Lorenza Rosé, Arsonist Chardonnay, Domaine Schlumberger Pinot Blanc, Chapoutier Ciboise Rouge, Rock Horse Ranch Cabernet, Pacific Rim Vin de Glaciere, and many, many more.
And, Cucina also offers wine flights priced at a mere $12 wherein guests can taste a trio of wines per flight. The flights are: All White Flight, All Red Flight, French Flight and Old World Flight.
Best of all, there’s only one bottle on the new Cucina wine list priced over $100: Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne. Most of the wines under $100 are well under that price, with lots of good choices in the $40 to $60 range. Cucina is certainly the place to sip in the New Year.
