Urban Press Winery Hotel
When you think of California wine—that top-class grape esteemed around the world—we’d wager you’re picturing rolling foothills quilted in vineyards. And that’s certainly accurate, but it’s only part of the picture.
A stay with us here at the Hotel Amarano isn’t exactly a stay in the heart of California wine country, but that doesn’t mean you can’t avail yourself of some wonderful regional vino when you’re here in downtown Burbank. Not by a long shot!
We’re only a few miles from Urban Press Winery, which for better than two decades has been an outlet for fantastic Californian wine right on the stoop of the City of Angels.
Urban Press Winery: A Wide Spectrum of Wine
Spotlighting the talent of vintner Giovanni D’Andrea, this small-batch boutique winery bottles up a remarkable spread of styles and terroirs and grapes. We’re talking Zinfandels and Petit Sirahs, Sauvignon Blancs and Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Champagnes.
Tastings & Events at Urban Press Winery
Tucked into the Burbank Town Centre, Urban Press Winery is open afternoons and evenings seven days a week: specifically, 3 to 10 PM Mondays through Wednesdays; 3 to 11 PM Thursdays; 2 PM to 1 AM Fridays; noon to 1 AM Saturdays; and noon to 9 PM Sundays.
Besides their everyday wine tastings—which are certainly not “everyday” in terms of the caliber of the grape you’re slurping, mind you—Urban Press Winery also hosts a frequent lineup of special events. Whether it’s a random happy hour that calls for a bit of oenophilic indulgence or a celebratory bottle release, a visit to Urban Press Winery makes the highlight of any day out and about in Burbank.
The Wine Scene at Hotel Amarano
Well, maybe we should say a dual highlight alongside the reliable boutique luxury you get to enjoy at the Hotel Amarano. And don’t forget you can always sip some blue-ribbon wine right here on our property, whether it’s accoutering the haute cuisine dining of Privato or fueling a laidback evening in the glamorous bar at the Library Lounge.
So next time you call us your home-away-from-home in Burbank, California, spare some time for an open-ended swing by Urban Press Winery: the perfect place to sample your way through some California-grown grape and masterfully rendered wine!
