Sixty Vines: Because food tastes better with wine.
Often referred to as “the winemaker’s restaurant,” the unique brand delivers simple, yet flavorful, seasonal cuisine inspired by some of the best wine regions in the world. Sixty Vine’s innovative wine-on-tap program allows guests to enjoy individual glasses of wine served at the perfect temperature. It’s also eco-friendly: each pressurized steel keg used to store on-tap wines saves 26 bottles from going in a landfill.
