Local Bar’s ‘spirited’ celebration of Joe Biden’s win


After what can only be called an eventful election, one local spot is using their product to show their support for the outcome. Jet Wine Bar on South Street is celebrating the incoming administration with an Inauguration Wine Package boasting two wines paying homage to President-elect Joe Biden and two paying homage to Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. The new package is available now at the popular wine spot and will be available for purchase until January 2021. On top of the wine, those who purchase the package will also receive a “Bad Things Happen in Philadelphia” ornament from a local female-owned business, and a Jet Wine Bar logo tote bag. 

According to the release, the Inauguration Wine Package was carefully curated by Jet Wine Bar Owner and Wining Archaeologist, Jill Weber, with two wines paying homage to President-elect Joe Biden and two paying homage to Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Weber also partnered with local Philadelphia company, Resting Gift Face, for a custom “Bad Things Happen in Philadelphia” ornament with an illustration of a Gritty graffiti adorned dancing USPS mailbox. The gift package will also come with a Jet Wine Bar tote bag. Wine lovers and Biden-Harris supporters can purchase the Inauguration Gift Package now for $140 online, in-store at Jet Wine Bar or over the phone. 

“Joe Biden hails from Scranton, PA and his wife, Jill, was born down the interstate in Willow Grove. So, we stopped halfway between the two for some wine from Galen Glen Winery,” said Weber in a statement. “Biden also happens to be only the second Catholic president. He has visited the Vatican, and the Pope was among the earliest to call with congratulations on his 2020 win. So, we think a wine from Lazio – the location of Rome and the Vatican – is fitting.”

The wines included in the package are: a Galen Glen Red German Bastards 2019, PA, Casale Marchese Frascati, Italy, Land of Saints Grenache + Syrah 2017, CA and the McBride Sisters Brut Rosé, New Zealand.  

“This inauguration isn’t just about the President,” continued Weber in her statement. “This historic incoming administration features the first woman Vice-President, Kamala Harris. Harris was born in California into a family that melds Jamaican, Indian, and American roots. We think Land of Saints reflects that blend of cultures as it is a collaboration between owners of Kiwi, Cornish, and Mexican-American descent – based in California. Harris is not just the first female VP, she is also a Black woman. So, we’re breaking out the bubbles from the McBride Sisters – the largest Black-owned winery – whose Brut Rosé is sure to get the party started!”
