3rd Annual New York City Winter Wine Festival
February 4, 2012 (Sat)
from 3:00 PM - 11:00 PM
New York, NY
Wine OR Wine & Food
On February 4th, NYC’s favorite wine tasting takes to the Best Buy Theater (formerly NOKIA) in Times Square once again as we transform this prime venue into a winter wonderland brimming with wine… a vineyard of gargantuan proportions, if you will!
Enjoy wines from all over the world – great Zinfandels from California… Super Tuscans from Italy… full-bodied Bordeaux from France… and some fantastic wines from Latin America. More than 200 wine selections to taste in all!
In previous years, this now annual event was named the “must attend event” of the first weekend in February by NBC Local TV. And for the last two years the event SOLD OUT… so make plans NOW to be sure you warm up with us and sip amazing wines during one of two sessions: Afternoon (3pm-6pm) and Evening (8pm-11pm).
Last years’ sessions added up to more: more wine, more food, and more room to stretch out and enjoy… this year, join us for all that and more!
***NOTE: You must be 21 or older to attend this event.***
FOOD: Cleanse your palate between tastings with delicious hors d’oeuvres, cheese, bread, and crudités. (Full meal not provided. Light fare only.)
WINE CLASSES: Upgrade your tickets for access to our VIP Wine Classes area. Indulge in an exclusive tasting of special wines in a VIP Wine Class led by nationally recognized wine expert Leslie Sbrocco, founder of Thirsty Girl and a frequent Today Show guest. (Please Note: There is an additional charge of $25 per ticket for VIP Classes.) Sorry, classes are sold out.!
MUSIC: This year, for your sipping and swaying pleasure we present “Nu Jazz” artists Four80East,
performing in the final hour of each session (5-6pm / 10-11pm).
Inspired by the acid jazz/groove movement flourishing in the UK in the
late 90’s, Candian remix producers Tony Grace and Rob DeBoer
(collectively known as Boomtang) launched Four80East as a cool, creative
side project geared towards a loose, improvisational dance vibe. Over
the last decade, as chill music established itself as a genre, their
jazz inflected urban trance music — considered “trip-jazz” or “Nu Jazz” –
became a global phenomenon.
