Wine culture is booming in Oklahoma. From new growers popping up all over our state to local artisans crafting fine wine and bar accessories, it’s a great time to invest in the delightful hobby of wine tasting. At Mickey Mantle’s, our goal has always been to have the widest selection and most exclusive labels in Oklahoma City on our wine list. With our award-winning wine collection, which has over 500 different labels to try, and our on-site sommelier, we’ve exceeded our goals and are proud to offer OKC some of the best wines from the region.
With the holidays fast approaching, we want to encourage the gift of wine appreciation from the Oklahoma City community, as well as support local winemakers. We’ve selected a few gift ideas themed around locally-made wine items to either improve your at-home bar, or add a little flair to your wine lover’s collection.
