Here is information about the 4th Annual New York Wine Expo, taking place this weekend, open to the general public on February 25th and 26th, 2011 at the Jacob Javits Center, New York City. I attended last year's expo and found it a great way to learn more about many different wines, be educated about their origins and have lots of fun tasting wine and having great conversations with wine makers and wine sellers from numerous countries! Included here are some of my photos from last year's New York Wine Expo, 2010.
The event not only features hundreds of wines, but also specialty foods and exotic spices.
While at the Javits Center, take in the annual New York Times Travel Show running simultaneously on February 26th and 27th, 2011, featuring travel lectures, international music and dance performances and more.
