VINO IN THE CITY…by Christabelle
The New York Wine Expo is BACK…much to my delight, since I am a lover of all things “wine” (including my significant other, Phil VINO). For the 2nd year, New Yorkers will have the opportunity to sniff, swirl, sip and spit wines from around the globe – all under ONE roof. Word of advice…leave the car at home and cab it for this event.
From New World Wines to French or Italian favorites as well as local New York, Oregon and California wines, the New York Wine Expo offers the opportunity to sample the products of approximately 170 wineries and over 600 bottles of wine. SIX HUNDRED – so pad your tummy well with food before coming. In addition to all of this, you can also sign up for seminars for all levels of wine connoisseurs (including me – the novice!). I plan on joining a course to pick up some tips on selecting the proper vintage (I hear 2004 is a good year) as well as how to serve wine and meal matching. Love it!
Catch all the grape-filled fun this February a the New York Wine Expo!
