New York Wine Events will host its annual New York City Autumn Wine & Food Festival on Saturday, October 19th.

Guests can also take home their complimentary custom tasting glass as a souvenir.
Tasting tables located throughout the main floor of the venue will feature diverse selections perfect for autumn and the upcoming holiday season including fruit-forward and full-bodied reds, oaky, buttery, and dry white wines as well as some sweet and sparkling selections. Varietals from old, new and emerging wine regions will be showcased including Brazil, France, Israel, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Slovenia, South Africa, South America, California, New York, and more.
A limited number of VIP Tickets are available which include early entry to the main tasting and admission to the exclusive VIP Rosé & Bubbly Suite.
