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!
