If you've been meaning to take a trip to the wineries of the Finger Lakes, Greater Niagara region, North Fork or the Hudson Valley but haven't had the time, consider letting them come to you instead.
The 9th annual NY Drinks NY Grand Tasting will offer over 200 wines from 50 wineries from across New York State at The Rainbow Room, high atop Rockefeller Center. A quintessentially New York institution, the Rainbow Room has welcomed guests for over eight decades in an opulent, glamorous and iconic destination.In addition to wine, there will also be a spread of New York cheeses and charcuterie with artisan breads and sweet butter.
In addition to Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley and Long Island wines, you'll also be able to sample some made as far away as the Niagara Escarpment region of Western New York. The event is part of NY Drinks NY, a promotion organized by the New York Wine & Grape Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation that promotes the wineries and grape-growers in the state.
