Cuisine Description

The wine list is based in the traditional European regions of Burgundy, Italy, Rhône and Bordeaux, but we are in constant quest for overachievers from around the globe.

Wine List Description
Contemporary American cuisine driven by the seasons and local products. Our wine program follows the same seasonal approach: Guests enjoy hearty Barolos, Brunellos and Rhône reds in the winter and sip Riesling, Chablis and Rosé in the sunnier summer months.

Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"The hand-chopped local Wagyu tartare with pumpernickel toast."

Perfect Pairing
Chef Robert McCormick’s foie gras torchon and Dr. Loosen’s Blue Slate Riesling Kabinett.

Wine Events
We host La Paulée des Neiges with Daniel Johnnes and Chef Daniel Boulud, bringing some of Burgundy’s greatest winemakers to Aspen for the ultimate wine-lovers ski vacation. In addition, we host two dinners a month as part of our Swirl, Sip, Sup Wine Dinner Series, hosted by our talented sommeliers or visiting winemakers, and introduce guests to some of our favorite regions.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
