‘inoteca is scheduled to close down after business Saturday, but it still needs help draining some 1,300 bottles of wine. Owner Jason Denton took to Reddit for his clarion call to all “NYC winos” to swing by the restaurant for a taste.

There’s probably some really good shit down in that basement. First come, first served, as they say.

This was the post on Reddit:

Dear Friends, I’m truly sad to say that after nearly 11 years in business, it’s the final week of service at very special place called ‘inoteca. We invite all of you, yes all of you, to come on by and help us drink all 1,300 bottles in our cellar. WE NEED YOUR HELP. We cannot possibly drink them alone. Those of you familiar with our cellar know how special it is. And those of you that aren’t will soon find out. I hope you can make it out. You definitely wont regret it.
We’ve already slashed prices, and we’ve got an automatic 10% discount for industry folks, plus additional (increasingly outrageous) discounts for everyone as the week goes on.

I guarantee you will drink some of the greatest stuff ever pressed from a grape, and at a sinfully low price. I’m talking Gaja, Dal Forno, Quintarelli, Valentini, Conterno, Giacosa, Spinetta, Soldera, Borgogno, etc… Seriously special bottles that will get repossessed if we dont get to them first. Also, we’re popping some outrageous stuff to pour by the glass and updating live on twitter so you can see what we’ve opened. I’ll be there every minute til we close our doors for good and I look forward to seeing you! Love, RegrettablePun
