The Wines of Summer

Monday, July 20th 


Summer is a time of bounty in New York. Each bite of greenmarket produce evokes sunshine, warmth and relaxation. In July, Vintage Babbo invites you to enjoy the best Hudson Valley produce paired with the wines of the sunny south. From wines of Liguria to the iconic Emidio Pepe of Abruzzo, we will take you on a journey of historic lands and unique grapes. The “Sunny South” is full of hidden gems that will spark a curiosity and take you down a new wine path.


Reservations are available from 5:30 to 11:15PM.

On select Monday evenings, we invite Italian wine lovers to join us for a special tasting menu paired with the best vintage wines from the depths of our cellar. Unlike many restaurant wine dinners, these are not distributor-sponsored events featuring “current-release” wines. The allure of Vintage Babbo is that it’s a personal expression of the restaurant; an opportunity for us to dig deep into our cellar (as much as it may sometimes hurt to see these wines leave); and an excuse to share the best of the best with our customers.
