NYC Winter Wine Festival
Time Out says
Pretend you’re vacationing on the sunny hills of Sonoma or Tuscany at this makeshift “indoor vineyard,” where you can taste unlimited samples of more than 250 wines in a 2.5-hour span. The huge midtown festival will also serve hors d’oeuvres and feature a live jazz performance from Grammy nominee Brian Simpson to keep you entertained as you sip vino from the usual suspects (France, Italy) as well as more unexpected locales (South Africa, Japan). There will be two tasting sessions, the first from 3:30pm to 6pm, and the second from 8pm to 10:30pm.
