Warm spring weather, a fresh wine menu and delicious Pasta Jay food drew a crowd to Boulder last night, when the restaurant launched it’s new wine menu. It was a festive occasion.
Pasta Jay’s, Boulder’s most beloved Italian restaurant, is hosting a party April 10 to unveil an exciting new collection of higher-end, but highly affordable wines.
The new offerings, which range from Genesis Merlot, a rich and creamy blend of dark cherry, maple, cocoa, to Umberto Cesari Sangiovese Riserva, an Italian import that provides a bouquet of mountain flowers and fruitiness, are sure to enhance your dining experience.
The extensive list of 30-plus red and whites will be sold by the glass and bottle. These tantalizing new offerings were personally selected by Pasta Jay to blend with our zesty Italian cuisine.
“Everyone already loves our food,” Pasta Jay said. “It’s my hope that our Boulder friends will embrace the new concept and make Pasta Jay’s the place to truly savor the best and most affordable wines on the planet.”
Pasta Jay will update the wine list often. But everyone can enjoy the first taste of our upscale wine list starting April 10 from 5 to 5 pm.

The question about who invented pasta first seems likely to have been settled, thanks to a pot of 4,000-year-old noodles discovered on the Yellow River two years ago.
