Wine En­thu­si­ast’s Toast of the Town, To­mor­row In NYC!

500 world class wines! Dozens of restau­rants serv­ing their best dish­es! Live jazz! All at a beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion, the Os­car Ham­mer­stein Ball­room in Man­hat­tan. We can’t wait to check out to­mor­row’s event, the Wine En­thu­si­ast Toast of the Town. Al­so held in Chica­go (June 8th at the amaz­ing Field Mu­se­um) and Wash­ing­ton, DC (June 22 at the love­ly Na­tion­al Build­ing Mu­se­um), this isn’t just an­oth­er tast­ing event. When a mag­a­zine with the rep­u­ta­tion of Wine En­thu­si­ast brings winer­ies to­geth­er, you can bet that they’ll be pour­ing some amaz­ing reds, whites, and rosés.

Tick­ets are still avail­able in lim­it­ed quan­ti­ties- VIP tick­ets al­low you ac­cess to an ex­tra hour be­fore the main event, as well as some spe­cial re­served tast­ings, and a much eas­i­er time talk­ing to the wine­mak­ers. They run $170, but if that’s a bit too much, gen­er­al ad­mis­sion tick­ets are $110. The gala event starts at 7PM (or 6PM if you are a VIP tick­et hold­er) and ends at 10PM, and we hear that dozens of com­pa­nies will be ap­pear­ing, serv­ing cakes and spir­its and much more.

A list of some of the wine­mak­ers, brew­eries and restau­rants ap­pear­ing that we’re look­ing for­ward to, in no par­tic­u­lar or­der: Alexan­der Val­ley Vine­yards, Hall Wines, Triven­to, Wente, Freix­enet (Glo­ria Fer­rer), Al­la­gash, Se­bas­tiani and Sons, Bois­set, J Vine­yards, Roth, Mer­ry­vale, J. Lohr, Zut­to, Molyvos, Juli­ette, Ab­boc­ca­to, and SD26. That’s a very par­tial list, but is more than enough to get us sali­vat­ing. We’ll see you there, to­mor­row night, at the Wine En­thu­si­ast Toast of the Town!

Greg dreamed up the idea for the Truly Network while living in Hawaii, which began with a single site called TrulyObscure.

He also served as the Content Strategy Manager for HearPlanet, a multi-platform app that has reached over a million users and has been featured in the New York Times, Hemispheres Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Fox Business News, PC Magazine, and even Apple’s own iPhone ads. Greg has written as a restaurant critic and feature journalist for a number of national and international publications, including City Weekend Magazine, Red Egg Magazine, the Newton Daily News, Capital Change Magazine, and an arm of China Daily, Beijing Weekend. In addition, he has served as a consulting editor for the Foreign Language Press of Beijing, as well as a writer and editor for the George Washington University Hatchet, the school newspaper of his alma mater.
