Just a quick note about some wine tasting that will take place in the New York area:
Lucio Caputo’s Gala Italia will be held on February 25 at the Marriott Marquis, as always. Last year I tasted some wines I really enjoyed including a few from Sicily that knocked my socks off.
On March 1, Alta Cucina will be holding a trade only tasting of a variety of wines offered by Wine Dreamers. I will most certainly be there, not least to say hello to my friends at Livon, a great winery from Friuli. I brought their delicious Braide Alte wine to the Diploma dinner this year.
On March 4, another friend has worked with the city of Dijon to organize a tasting of wines from Burgundy. The event is part of a larger event sponsored by the city of Dijon that will take place at Grand Central Station on March 3. I love Dijon and lived there for 8 months during my University days. Some day if you ply me with wine I will tell you about my 250 euro taxi drive to Dijon from Lyon…..
In the meantime, hope to see some of you out and about at these events.
