If you're a fan of Wine Spectator and/or you like tasting great wines, you won't want to miss the New York Wine Experience October 22nd-24th, 2009 at the New York Marriott Marquis.
There are several ways to take part in the event. First is to purchase a $250 ticket for one of the Grand Tastings. These are "expo-style" stand up/walk around tastings that feature an impressive list of wineries. Second is to purchase a $1,875 weekend pass that gives you admission to two nights of the Grand Tastings, some meals -and- (most notably) admission to sit down seminars moderated by Wine Spectator editors.
Although I've never attended one of these events personally, the sit down format in particular has always looked attractive since they provide an opportunity to focus and learn more about specific wines right from the editors of the magazine.
