New York State Wine Class at City Winery: Winter Whites

  • City Winery NYC 155 Varick Street New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

Little-known fact: New York is the third largest wine-producing state in the U.S., according to the Wine Institute. There are five major wine growing regions in New York, ten official viticultural areas and more than 420 wineries operating within the state.

We invite you to join us for a class and tasting at City Winery in celebration of New York's viticultural diversity on Friday, January 19th. Named Wine Region of the Year in 2014 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, New York produces wines that can satisfy the most discriminating wine drinker: wines that are complex, well-made and expressive of the local terroir.

During the class, we will offer six white wines from six wineries across New York in order to highlight individual styles and expressions of the land and celebrate beautiful food-friendly white wines that complement any dining experience and satisfy the most discriminating palate. Our Executive Chef Michael Jeanty will prepare an assortment of hors d'oeuvres to pair with wines.
