JET WINE BAR LAUNCHES TIME TRAVELER TASTING SERIES
Jet Wine Bar, Philadelphia’s “global vineyard,” is excited to announce the launch of a new Time-Traveler Tasting series, featuring six classes that delve into the history and stories behind a carefully selected lineup of wines – kicking off this Tuesday, January 9th.
Jill Weber, Jet Wine Bar Owner and Wining Archaeologist, will taste guests through five different wines while transporting imbibers to a different time and place, think 13th-17th century Germany, Julius Caesar’s Conquest of Gaul and Olympic Games host cities through the years.

“Our tasting series is designed for the explorers and adventurers among us who are excited about experiencing new wines and all of the stories behind them,” said Weber. “Our tastings will transport you to the past as we dig deep into the history of the wine, the region, and the people who make it.”
The classes range from $35-$50 based on the selection of wine and includes light snacks plus 15% off the guest’s bar tab if they choose to stay after the class. A select number of bottles of tasted wines will be available for purchase to-go.
Guests will taste the wines while discovering fun facts and peculiar histories of each wine’s locale. But wine isn’t only about history and tradition – guests will also get a peek into the future with up-and-coming regions, winemakers, and techniques.

ABOUT JET WINE BAR:
Jet Wine Bar, Philadelphia’s “global vineyard” asks guests to think globally, drink locally. Jet offers meats, cheeses, small plates, sandwiches, and snacks to complement their unique, diverse selection of wines from around the world. Jet Wine Bar opened in November 2010 as the love child of an archaeologist, Jill Weber, and an engineer, Evan Malone. Their goal was to bring a friendly, accessible wine bar to a great neighborhood. The power couple went on to open sister restaurants, Rex 1516 and Cafe Ynez, eventually forming Sojourn Restaurant Group in 2017. Jet serves dinner, brunch and snacks — Mon-Fri, 4pm-1am, Sat-Sun, 11am-1am. Jet Wine Bar can be found at 1525 South St., Philadelphia PA. For more info., visit www.jetwinebar.com.
