Introducing the Omaha Steaks 1917 Wine Collection
Omaha Steaks is passionate about enhancing its customers’ dining experiences. To that end, the company was determined to create its own range of wines to pair perfectly with its signature dishes—just like a fine steakhouse has its own “House Wines.”

To select the wines, the team worked hand-in-hand with the Laithwaites over a number of months, and is proud to announce the launch of the Omaha Steaks 1917 wine range, which is named after the year the Simon family’s business opened shop.

Each wine is handcrafted to make the world’s best steak, pork, seafood, and poultry taste even better. The first three wines in the range are a silky, smoky Red Blend from Portugal; a bright, food-friendly French Chardonnay; and a luxuriously rich Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon.

Family at the Foundation
After a thorough search, the company selected Laithwaites as its exclusive wine partner due to their shared values and family heritage. Founded by Tony Laithwaite in 1969, Laithwaites was the world’s first direct-to-home wine service. Tony’s son, Tom Laithwaite, will serve as Cellar Director for Omaha Steaks Wine.

Laithwaites has local experts on the ground in all the world’s key wine regions. Together, they taste over 40,000 wines each year. Only the best (less than 2%) make the cut. These are boutique wines from smaller, family-run estates that will perfectly enhance Omaha Steaks’ gourmet food offerings.
