New York

“Reviewers’ Choice” Icon Wines of the World


Saturday, 20 February 2016 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Mandarin Oriental, 80 Columbus Circle, NYC


Matter of Taste New York City kicks off the Robert Parker Wine Advocate 2016 calendar of events with a bang, featuring an all-star cast of Reviewers and Wines. The theme of this installment of this globe-trotting walkabout tasting format is: “Reviewers’ Choice”. This means all nine members of our expert review team  will be hosting at this this event. What’s more, they have each nominated their most exciting wine finds from throughout the wine world, all poised at the very pinnacle of quality greatness scoring 90 points or above, to be featured at the grand walk-around tasting and at the satellite master class and dinner events.

 

The main tasting event and a handful of rare master class opportunities will take place on Saturday, 20th February at the glamorous Mandarin Oriental Hotel. There will also be range of small, exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime dinners and seminars on offer on the days surrounding the events, at some of NYC’s most sumptuous restaurants and venues. Promising to be the wine event of the year, Matter of Taste NYC is one long weekend of non plus ultra wine and dine indulgences that true hedonists will not want to miss!
