Wine is always a great idea… and when it comes to wine, New York City offers a variety of options to get your vino on.

And if you're still craving something with a little more of that beautiful Napa scenery, the Finger Lakes are just a drive away from the city.

So here’s all you need to know about Gradito’s unmatched private sommelier & wine tasting experience…


  • Did Someone Say… Personal Sommelier?

Enjoying wines recommended by a sommelier at a fine dining restaurant can be one of the most enjoyable gastronomic experiences available to us. Beyond suggesting wine pairings and pouring wine, sommeliers have the unique opportunity to connect with people during their meals and elevate their dining experience with exceptional hospitality. It’s hard to find this top-tier culinary attentiveness, but it’s even harder to share it with an entire restaurant filled with patrons craving the same thing as you. What if you could book your very own private sommelier?


Get ready to unlock the next level of NYC sommelier experiences with Gradito.
