I rarely get the chance to enjoy New York wines. Blame it on distribution or the simple fact I live in Florida, New York wines usually don’t find their way to the shelves of my local wine shops. So when I received word that TasteNY was coming back for a second year in a row, I jumped at the opportunity to participate. The event, a project started by Lenn Thompson of the New York Cork Report, has one simple goal. Get the word (and wine) out to as many people as possible. A worthy goal and one I applaud.
On Wednesday, September 15th at 8PM EST, bloggers, writers, and wine enthusiasts across the country will have the chance to participate in a Twitter-based event to sample one of New York’s premier wineries, Shinn Estate Vineyards. Participants will taste three wines:
- Shinn Estate Vineyards 2009 “First Fruit” Sauvignon Blanc
- Shinn Estate Vineyards NV Red
- Shinn Estate Vineyards 2007 Nine Barrels Reserve Merlot
If that lineup isn’t reason enough to participate, Shinn is offering participants 20% off the wines! $64.80 for all three wines. I urge all my readers, friends and family to hurry up and purchase online and join in the fun and a taste of New York. Cheers!
