Wine & Spirits Top 100 Symposium event

After 16 years hosting the Top 100 in SF, Wine & Spirits Magazine now brings the best of the best all the way to NY. The Top 100 Symposium invites the community to meet and taste with the winemakers behind the top-scoring wines of 2019, selected from 11,500 wines through a rigorous double-blind tasting process. To pair these wines chefs from the Wine & Spirits WSNY restaurants will serve delicious cuisine throughout the event. Throughout the day (3PM-8PM), W&S editors will partner up with winemakers to take event attendees on ten-minute explorations of individual wines, sharing discussions of how the wine ties back to its vineyard. The event also features the chefs behind our current favorite restaurants showcasing including: Bâtard, Camperdown Elm, GAUDir, Jungsik, L’Accolade, Nice Martin, Noreetuh, The Dutch and The River Café. Guests will also enjoy oysters from Grand Central Oyster Bar, artisan breads from Lost Bread Co and Orwasher Bakery, and dessert from the International Culinary Center. Thank you to our sponsors: Willamette Valley, Wine Australia, Morgan Manhattan, Dr Konstantin Frank and Topo Chico. Plus, in keeping with our mission to raise awareness of water conservation issues, proceeds from this event will be donated to NY/NJ Waterkeeper.
