New York Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of New York? Then look for a a New York Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local New York wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. New York has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Buffalo, Syracuse, Watertown
and Plattsburgh, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of NY wines. Many specialize in fine NY wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like The Finger Lakes Wine Festival
in July, Adirondack Harvest Festival In Blue Mountain Lake in October,
or New York City Wine and Food Festival in October, you may find
wines from Martha Clara Vineyards, Otter Creek Wineries, Shalestone
Vineyards, Hudson Chatham Winery, and many others at New York wine
festivals. In addition to wine, these events can include excellent
food to sample, prepared by local restaurants and chefs. And often
you can expect music too. After all, nothing pairs better with wine
than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music. Local musicians are out
playing their best music to accompany the wine tasting. Whether
you're visiting New York City and Albany you can find a local wine,
food and music festival that will perfect your NY vacation. The
most popular time of year for these festivals are the Fall and Summer
months, but they are also scheduled during holiday months as well.
Imagine sipping some great wines while watching the annual Christmas
Tree lighting ceremony! So although, you may not have time to visit
all of New York's great wineries,
