On February 26-28, the ginormous Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York will be overrun by equally ginormous 3rd Annual New York Wine Expo.
While the Expo plays host to the wine trade, it also offers wine consumers a unique opportunity to sample a boatload of wines during the Feb 26 & 27 (Friday & Saturday) portion of the happenings – 600 wines from over 170 worldwide producers. That’s a lot more wine than most wine lovers normally have exposure to, and while I certainly don’t recommend that you try them all in two days, I would recommend that you check out the Expo – and that, if you do, you SPIT - if only to take advantage of the unique opportunity of having so many wine brands available to taste under one roof.
And you can get there more cheaply just by reading this blog! Hey, don’t say I never gave you anything!!
The Expo organizers have generously offered a discount on advanced ticket purchases for 1WineDude.com readers: if you purchase tickets by February 19, use promo code WINEDUDE at checkout to receive a $10 discount.
More details are below. And if you’re heading to the NY Wine Expo, let me know – I’m still working on trying to get there for Friday’s portion!
