Braving Amtrack to attend Vino 2010 in Manhattan today

Friday, February 05, 2010

Every now and then, you just have to go out there and do something that happens once a year. Well, for today, I am going to brave the impending blizzard via Amtrak and head to NYC to attend Vino 2010, which is billed as the largest celebration of Italian wine outside of Italy.

I definitely hope to connect with many importers and distributors, and hopefully find some great finds in the order of Chinato, Amarone, and various Passito style wines.

It"s times like this I wish that I had completed my Rosetta Stone software for Italian, but, such is life. At least I am making the trip.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
