Tickets are not available at the event. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! That is a success! For as long as I have been covering wines on the east coast, there has never been such a talked about tasting event of any east coast wine. And in our nation;s wine capital! This is the kind of event, and leadership, the New York wine industry has been hungering for...and here it is.

Congrats to all involved from the NYWGF to the wineries themselves!
