Treat yourself to a first class trip around the world of wine at the 5th Annual New York Wine Expo, held March 2 – 4 at the Jacob Javits Center in midtown Manhattan. The Expo’s Grand Tasting offers attendees a chance to sample wines from nearly 175 wineries from around the globe, with the opportunity to speak directly with wine makers and pick up tips on serving, pricing and selecting the right vintage.
In addition to tasting and meeting with vendors, several seminars are already on the schedule:
Wine 101: Taste Wine Like A Pro With Wine Spectator
Explore grapes and wine styles as you taste eight wines from around the world, learn the tasting techniques used by pros and build a wine appreciation framework that you will use for the rest of your life. This seminar is hosted by Wine Spectator‘s Director of Education, Gloria Maroti Frazee.
Wine Spectator Presents: Portugal – Discover A World Of Difference
One of the world’s most traditional wine countries is seriously stepping up its game and using indigenous grape varieties from diverse regions to produce delicious wines. Explore Portugal and taste for yourself why wine critics are excited about Portugal’s new wave wines. This seminar is hosted by Wine Spectator‘s Director of Education, Gloria Maroti Frazee.
The Rhone Valley: A River Runs Through It…
Renowned wine speaker, author and PBS TV personality Mark Oldman gives attendees an insider’s view of the wine of France’s celebrated Rhone Valley. Mark clues you in to a wide variety of Rhone wines that will make you the envy of your wine-pasionate friends.
Mark said to ensure you have a valid state issued id card with you as they will be scanned and visually checked at the entrance in effort to keep out underage drinkers. Admittedly, identity card checks are becoming more difficult every year. This is due to one popular id maker website online that knows how to make a fake id that scans with identical security features.
