New York Wine Festivals announces the return of the New York City Winter Wine Festival to the Best Buy Theater in Times Square on Saturday, February 9, 2013. The 4th annual wine tasting event includes 200+ wines plus an array of light hors d’oeuvres. As wine enthusiasts sip, music by Grammy-nominated contemporary jazz guitarist Jeff Golub will enhance the setting with special live jazz performances during the tasting sessions.
Tasting tables located throughout the attractive venue will offer a wide variety of high-quality, unique wines from around the globe including an extensive selection from old world regions like Bordeaux and Rioja, to new world region styles from California, South Africa, and Chile.
The popular wine tasting event has sold out for the last three years. In the festival’s first year (2010), NBC local television dubbed it a “must-attend event.” To meet popular demand, the 2013 event continues to feature two sessions: an Afternoon Session from 3-6pm and an Evening Session from 8-11pm. For an additional fee, attendees can learn about and taste a selection of special wines at an exclusive VIP Wine Class led by a seasoned wine expert.
”This annual event brings an amazing selection of wines from around the world all under one roof for an extraordinary tasting experience. Guests are treated to incredible picks from different wine regions and grape varietals. Add in live performances by Jeff Golub and his band during the fest, it’s truly an event to remember for both first-timers and returnees,” notes Sam Kimball, co-founder of New York Wine Festivals.
