Vallone Restaurant Group Offers 50% Off Wines For Its 3 Restaurants
Three popular wine lists in Houston will go on sale. According to the owners of the Vallone Restaurant Group, each bottle at the three restaurants will be 50% off one day on a daily basis - Ciao Bello on Tuesday, Vallone's on Wednesday and Tony's on Thursday.
Scott Sulma, a partner in the group, said he and Tony Vallone have an addiction to wine, which has led to an inventory of the wine. He said guests should take this opportunity to enjoy the prices.
The deals, which will be available for both lunch and dinner, will run until the end of April with a possible extension.
Sulma said the paid hopes the promotion brings new diners to the restaurant and is a reward to their loyal customers who'd like to splurge on a bottle.
While each list has its pros, Tony's list goes deep with about 1,200 choices for customers to review. Sulma and Vallone put their attention on wines from Italy, France and California, allowing fans of these regions to find bottles at varying prices.
The discount allows Tony's diners to eat their meal with a Delamotte Brut for less than $100. Some diners may decide to treat themselves with a vintage French Burgundy or a California cult cab.
Many of Tony's wines run between $150 and $300 full price with the cheapest bottle coming in at $110.
Sulma said Vallone did most of the buying.
Vallone's steakhouse has an exhaustive lone of California red wines with about 750 choices. However, Sulma said he's proud of the champagne list he built, saying that he loves bubbles.
The list at Ciao Bello is half Vallone's size and is focused on Italian wines, with an array of Sicilian and white wines. Sulma feels it's Houston area's best Italian-focused lists. He credits the popularity to the restaurant's general manager David Siegman, as he's paired wines with the right foods.
Sulma said the new chef has brought a modern taste to the Italian cuisine, which has created an even better menu. He said the timing to offer 50% off wines has never been better.
