New York Wine Expo 2012 Is Nigh (And YOU Can Get $15 Off Through March 1st!)

Vinted on January 31, 2012 binned in wine industry events

By some minor miracle, I may actually be able to attend the New York Wine Expo in March.

For the last few years, I’ve had to miss this vinous shin-dig held at the ginormous Jacob K. Javits Convention Center because I’ve been roughly 2,898 miles away from it when it’s been held. But this year, I’ll be just getting back from the Left Coast when the NYC Wine Expo gets going… so there’s a good chance that I might see YOU there, since 1WineDude.com readers get a $15 discount on the Friday March 2nd grand tasting event, now through March 1st!

Why? Because you’re all totally bad-ass, that’s why!

The expo will be taking place March 2 – 4, 2012 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (trust me, it’s big enough that if you get reasonable close, you can’t miss it). Over 700 wines (dang!) will be poured from nearly 200 wineries, and there will be a few wine-related seminars outside of the tastings.

From now until March 1st, 2012 when you purchase NYC Wine Expo event tickets on-line you can get your $15 discount off the Friday night grand tasting event by clicking “Enter promotional code” at the bottom of the event form (directly above the “Order Now” button), and using the code “WINEDUDE (without the quotation marks, of course).

If you’re going (and you should, if you want to give your wine tasting IQ a serious – and quick – boost), check out my mini survival guide for getting through these big tasting events alive (Hint: Spit. A lot).

Cheers!


 

 

Attend the 2011 New York Wine Expo With a 1WineDude Reader Discount!

Vinted on January 11, 2011 binned in wine industry events

Hey East Coast Wine Peeps!

It’s that time of year again – the time when I miss the annual NY Wine Expo because I’ll be in Napa.  Doh!

But just because I won’t be there doesn’t mean that you can’t get in on the fun via 1WineDude.com – and you can get a $10 discount on the price of the Grand Tastings on Friday and Saturday, just by being a 1WineDude.com reader!

The 4th Annual New York Wine Expo is scheduled for February 25-27, 2011 at the  Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC, and will offer the opportunity to seriously up your wine tasting IQ by sampling over 600 wines from over 150 winemakers from around the globe in the Grand Tastings.

To score your discount, enter the Discount Code WINEDUDE when you order your tix online.

In the past, the Grand Tasting has received mixed reviews from 1WineDude.com readers – some find the big crowds off-putting, others are more inclined to brave the large turnout for the chance at networking and getting to taste the large array of wines from all over the world.

Personally, I’m somewhere in the middle – I love a good crowd, meaning a crowd that’s passionate and energized with a feel-good vibe going (and of course I dig the chance to taste a nice variety of fine wines), but if too many folks get plastered because they’re not spitting then things can get ugly.  And if that happens, those big events can sometimes turn into big bug-outs.

Where do you stand on big wine tasting events?  Good?  Bad?  Indifferent?

If you’re going, check out my mini survival guide for getting through these big tasting events alive.

Cheers!
