Blue Duck Tavern and Blue Duck Lounge will feature rare magnums by the glass, with four-ounce pours available until each bottle is consumed that evening. These events are part of the weekly “Blue Duck Uncorked” wine program.
Every Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Blue Duck Tavern will be pouring a specially selected rare magnum which is not found on the restaurant’s featured wine list, for a "taste" as a part of the “Blue Duck Uncorked” series. This experience is exclusively available on Tuesday, and the selection of fine wines is chosen by Blue Duck Tavern General Manager Joseph Cerione. It is a rare opportunity to taste these vintages by glass, with each pour priced at $30. The Magnums have all been selected for Tuesday service from July 14 through September 22, and a complete list is included below.
