NYC Winter Wine Fest: Biggest Tasting Of The Season!

Noth­ing helps get us through the New York win­ter nights like a nice glass of red wine. And though the re­gion might not be the best place in the world to grow grapes, it is one of the bright­est spots to taste wine, thanks to a wide va­ri­ety of hip bars and great vi­no shops. The down­side with buy­ing wine is that you’re go­ing to be do­ing it a glass or bot­tle at a time- but tast­ing events pro­vide a great way to ex­plore en­tire re­gions and styles of wine quick­ly, help­ing you find your fa­vorites and sam­ple new and dif­fer­ent vin­tages.

The biggest win­ter wine tast­ing event in New York City, the NYC Win­ter Wine Fest is com­ing to Times Square on Febru­ary 4th, bring­ing over 200 wines from a dozen coun­tries to­geth­er in one place. Two ses­sions help en­sure that you’ll ac­tu­al­ly be able to try what you want- there is an af­ter­noon event from 3-6PM and an evening one as well from 8-11PM. As they say, there will be “great Zin­fan­dels from
Cal­i­for­nia… Su­per Tus­cans from Italy… full-bod­ied Bor­deaux from France… and some fan­tas­tic wines
from Latin Amer­i­ca”.

The event has sold out for the last two years, and the wine class­es are al­ready sold out for this year- so get your tick­ets soon! They run $79 per per­son, which is in­ex­pen­sive when you con­sid­er the wine it­self, much less the light hors d’oeu­vres and the live jazz. A video from last year’s event is avail­able on­line, and we can’t wait to check out wines from around the world just min­utes from our doorstep in Man­hat­tan.

Save the date: Febru­ary 4th!
