The Melting Pot® Restaurants, Inc., the world’s premier fondue restaurant and a leading polished casual dining franchise, is celebrating women and wine this fall with its second annual Uncorked program, available at participating locations from Sept. 5 through Oct. 30. This year’s program, not only highlights the wine, but also the story of the women behind our featured wines. Guests have two ways to enjoy a variety of wines: a wine tasting and a four-course pairing menu, where the notable wines enhance the overall fondue experience.
“The Uncorked dining experience is designed to bring out the unforgettable flavors in both our fondue and the variety of our featured wines,” said Paul Brown, beverage manager of The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc. “Each of the selected wines available are made by women who are making their mark in the wine industry, and we invite everyone to visit their local Melting Pot restaurant to raise a glass to the women winemakers who are crushing it.”
This year’s Uncorked program will feature five noteworthy wines that all share a common background: each come from a woman leading the wine industry today. Featured wine selections include:

Our culinary and beverage teams have worked hand-in-hand to create a pairing menu that not only showcases The Melting Pot’s exceptional ingredients and uniquely flavored wines, but complements the two as well.”
