New Zealand Wine Tasting at Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm in New York

New Zealand Wine Tasting at Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm in New York

New Zealand Wine hosted a tasting in September 2019 at Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm in the middle of Brooklyn.

It’s not often one gets to taste wines in such a unique environment.

And as someone who attends a lot of tastings in Manhattan, this setting definitely transported me and my senses in way that doesn’t usually happen in more traditional tasting environments.

Below are some my favorite wines from the event.

Slow Wine New York 2020

Slow Wine’s February 2020 New York tasting was quite beautiful.

I attended an education session on Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo, which produces rosé made from Montepulciano and is Italy’s first DOC dedicated to rosé in Italy (more about that later).

Here are my favorite wines from the event that was hosted at Eataly downtown.

Again, sauvignon blanc shined because of its grassy elements which I’m missing given the preponderance of overripe American sauvignon blanc.

Chill Evening at James Suckling’s Great Wines of Italy New York Winetasting 2020

I love James Suckling’s winetastings in New York.

This is my fifth year joining the tasting that comes complete with a DJ.

The tasting features Italian wines rated from 90-100 points.

While we weren’t in our usual location, the IAC Building, because the IAC was Coronavirus shy (the tasting features a large contingent of winemakers from Italy which is currently a Coronavirus hotspot), I enjoyed our time in the Altman Building but look forward to returning to the IAC for the Wines of South America tasting in the fall.

Below are some of the wines I enjoyed over the evening during the March 4, 2020 winetasting.
