Wine Riot? Sounds a bit crazy right? Well, this is actually an incredible wine event that happens in NYC twice a year. The cost of the event is $60 ($55 if you purchase early) and you get to taste about 250 wines from all around the world.
I tried a little too much wine, had a lot of fun and learned a lot along the way!
Not only was wine offered, but there were crash courses on wine, flash tattoo booths, photo booths & delicious food options and so much more!
My favorite part about the event was the “bubbly bar,” which I thought was pure genius. Who doesn’t love a tall glass of champagne or prosecco? *raises hand*
As this was my first wine riot, I was actually unsure of what to expect and because of that I was really blown away. I loved the varieties of wines we were able to taste and the representative at each booth were super knowledgeable about the wines, which I loved! (They were also fun & charismatic!) There was never a rush and we sometimes were able to go back to our favorite booths for a second taste (Blue Crane Imports & Bridge Lane).
I made a ton of connections at the event and hopefully that will make my new wine review section even better!
