Chef’s Private Label Wine

Chardonnay: Dry yet soft, this Chardonnay is fruity and easy drinking, Fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel results in a fresh style with no buttery or toasted notes. Enjoy with our Penne Special. $28.80.

Moscato: Our Moscato is everything you look for in a sweet wine. Tons of fruit with a plush sweet finish. Try it with our Tuscany Chicken Salad. $26.70.

Chef’s Classic Red Wine: Our Classic Red is not too dry and not too sweet. A medium bodied red blend with the aroma of sweet cherries. This wine shines brightest when served with food. Try it with our Chicken Cacciatora. $29.70.

Anthony’s Reserve: Chef’s Restaurant wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Anthony Billittier, who in 1954 lent his son Lou some money to purchase full ownership of the restaurant. Today, we celebrate Anthony with our Reserve Red. This dry wine is bold in flavor with rich and velvety texture from start to finish. Made with Corvina grapes of Valpolicella, this wine is the ultimate pasta wine. Perfectly matched for our Spaghetti Parmesan. $32.70.
