The wine will debut at a.kitchen on Thursday, March 23 at 5:30 p.m. during Philly Wine Week, with a benefit happy hour featuring a first taste of the wine, a meet-and-greet with the winemaker, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, and a bottle of the new wine to take home. The event is $100 per person, and tickets are available online (click to purchase). Proceeds from the event, along with $25 from every bottle sold in the future, will be donated to the non-profit Institute for Functional Restoration at Case Western Reserve University, benefiting spinal cord research with the aim of supporting the ongoing rehabilitation of HSHG Chef and Co-Owner Eli Kulp.

“Larry had the idea to approach his neighbors, the award-winning winemakers at Karamoor Estate, about this wine. We immediately thought it was a terrific project,” says Yin. “We’re excited to bring a great local wine to our guests, and even more excited to support the incredible research of the Institute for Functional Restoration.” Also See.. Karamoor Estates & Goose Island's CHRYSOS Beer

Only 500 bottles of a.vin are available in this limited release. The wine, which will sell for $75 a bottle, is crafted from100% estate-grown grapes, which winemaker Kevin Robinson reports ripened happily thanks to a very warm summer and were harvested in peak condition ahead of a lengthy spell of mid-September rain. The wine was fermented in 50% French oak barrels and 50% stainless steel, with some malolactic fermentation to lend plush body without overwhelming the bright, balanced finish. Aromas of Bartlett pear complement jasmine and lemongrass notes for a wine that could easily be mistaken for Chablis despite its humble Pennsylvania provenance.

This is a.kitchen’s second signature fermented product; they also serve an exclusive vodka, a.vod. The restaurant has twice been recognized among Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Wine Restaurants in America, and is always looking for high-quality wines to feature. Following the Wine Week happy hour, bottles of a.vin will be available at AKA residences / hotels and in HSHG’s sister restaurants, Fork and High Street on Market.
