Wine Tour to New York City

New York City Wine Buyers’ Insider Experience

September 20 – 22, 2011

Experience the wine and spirits industry like the professionals do. You and your group will travel with Elise Loehr to New York to attend Winebow’s Annual Wine and Spirits Trade Tasting where you will sample everything from the latest vintages of great Italian wines, Champagne, Burgundy, and Bordeaux to the best Scotch whiskeys and other great distillates from around the world. Many of the finest restaurants & retailers go to this annual event to find new products, meet the winemakers, taste their new releases and to make deals for their business. You will be a part of this exclusive event for trade and press only.

At the Skylight in Soho, this two day event features over 300 producers and more than 1000 wines and is one of the most comprehensive trade tasting in the country. And, if the tasting becomes overwhelming, you are steps away from the best shopping, dining, and gallery scene in Manhattan!

Winebow’s founder Leonardo LoCascio has crafted an outstanding portfolio of premier Italian wines, spirits and specialty products.
