Although you will have to wait until later in the month to revel in the opening of California Wine Merchants in Lower Manhattan, you can get a jump start on appreciating the good juice from the sunshine state at California Wine Rush.
In case you didn't know it, September is California Wine Month in New York. The Wine Institute is celebrating by throwing a tasting at Espace in NYC on September 10th. The tasting is open to the public for $40 from 5pm to 7pm.
Wines from every region in California will be represented and shown off in various categories including female winemakers (female is all the rage these days don't ya know), Organic & Biodynamic wines, family operations, classics, and unexpected surprises. Taste a little, learn a little, and catch the California wine bug!
Tickets can be reserved on the Local Wine Events Website. Espace is located on 42nd Street between 11th and 12th. Hope to see you there. Cheers!
