Tilman Fertitta's Post Oak Hotel is the epitome of luxury, so it's no surprise that beneath its beautiful facade lies an unbelievable destination that's an oenophile’s utopia.
The Cellar is an intimate wine room created for bespoke experiences, exclusive social gatherings, and world-class private dining. Not only is it an exquisite space that inspires thoughts of a French chateau or Tuscan villa, but it's also the home base for the hotel's astonishing collection of more than 30,000 bottles, which are served throughout the property.
There's more than $3.5 million worth of inventory curated by the hotel's Advanced and Master Sommeliers, with wines spanning more than 23 countries and three centuries, with some vintages dating back to the 1800s.
So how do you get to try some? Well, besides being available through in-room dining and at all Post Oak Hotel restaurants — including Mastro's Steakhouse, Willie G's Seafood, Bloom & Bee, Craft F&B, and H BAR — the selections can be sampled during the Sommelier Series.
These dream dinners present each lucky guest with the opportunity to sip from rare bottles while learning from the sommeliers, all while enjoying artfully paired cuisine presented by the hotel's celebrated culinary team.
If this has you salivating, you'll want to get tickets to the next event on September 27. Napa vs. Sonoma will be a "battle royale" between two of California's finest regions, with the likes of Chappellet Chenin Blanc, Littorai Pinot Noir, and Laurel Glen Cabernet Sauvignon filling your glass. You can preview the full menu here, and reserve tickets here.
