Wine Cellar History - The Wine

Today, '21's Wine Cellar still evokes memories of those colorful days. The massive door, which must still be unlocked with that peculiar 18" wire, opens to reveal a series of rooms filled with the world's finest wines and liquors - Montrachet 1898, Romanee-Conti 1880, Chateau Lafite-Rothschild.

In addition to housing the restaurant's collection of vintage wines and rare liquors, '21' also stores the private collections of some of the restaurant's most famous patrons, both past and present, including Presidents Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon, Elizabeth Taylor, Hugh Carey, Ivan Boesky, Eva Gabor, Aristotle Onasis and Sammy Davis Jr.

Another cherished tradition of '21's Wine Cellar history is the "laying down" of a bottle of cognac or champagne when a child was born to a long-time patron. On the child's 21st birthday - and not a day sooner - the bottle is opened and savored with family and friends.
