10 US restaurants selling their wines to go

Vetri Cucina, Philadelphia

Italian restaurant Vetri Cucina in Philadelphia isn’t finding itself held back by Pennsylvania law, which limits off-premise wine sales by restaurants to four bottles per transaction. Last month it started selling wines off its list to go with a 35% discount on all bottles to reflect their retail prices. Thus far it has sold over $20,000 worth of wine despite the four-bottle per-person limit.

“A few customers are spending thousands at a time in separate transactions. We’re hoping this will help us be able to reopen, and also keep staff health insurance and some of the salaries going,” wine director Bobby Domenick told Wine Enthusiast.
