A number of us went to the Autumn Wine tasting put on by the same group. This was one of the most well managed wine tastings that I have been too, with a limited but very good selection of appetizers, really good jazz group with a Grammy winning guitarist, a really broad selction (over 200) wines, and a very manageable crowd. Most tables had a reasonable number of folks looking for a taste, and the crowd in general was quite pleasant.
Here is the link to purchase tickets, we will be attending the 8pm session, although if you choose you could go to the earlier event. Note that again some of the NY Wine Tasting folks are attending as well and we will try to meet up with them as needed
If there are still early bird tickets, they are $62.50 while supplies last, but the general admission is $79. Here is an excerpt from their site http://www.nywinefestivals.com/#
