Indulge yourself in the world of fine wine at The Wine Bar inside The Little Nell. The newly renovated apres-ski bar in Aspen, formerly Chair 9, sets the stage for intimate gatherings with its lounge-style ambiance providing plush n couches and seating areas for parties up to 8 people. Aesthetically designed, guests will be delighted by the relaxing atmosphere and listening to DJs spinning vinyl records. Enjoying a bold red or sparkling rosé in the presence of your closest friends and family has never been more serene.
The Wine Bar is proud to have an award-winning wine program, led by a reputable team of sommeliers. Overseen by Wine Director Chris Dunaway, our knowledgeable staff aims to immerse you and your party in an extravagant wine experience. The team has continued to maintain a level of excellence while earning the Wine Spectator Grand Award every year since 1997, while also archiving the remarkable feat of graduating 11 of North America’s Master Sommeliers, the most of any establishment in North America. With that said, every guest will be enthralled by the level of charisma and expertise each sommelier brings to your dining experience.
Flavorful Wine Selection
Offering an extensive list of rare wines, The Wine Bar features around 35 different wines by the glass, 16 wine enomatics on tap, a charcuterie carving station and cheese boards for light bites, as well as a full bar menu. As our on-site cellar has a wine collection of over 20,000 from the world’s highly esteemed vineyards, including Roulot and Romanée-Conti in Burgundy and Ridge and Screaming Eagle in California, this Aspen wine bar will feature a rotating selection to ensure your palate is fully satisfied every time you visit.
