New York Wine Reference Guide – Seminar Series Launched!

Building on the success of the recently updated New York Wine Reference Guide, NYWGF is now pleased to bring comprehensive, expertly delivered New York wine education to you each week from April 25th through June 20th, 2023. All are welcome to join writer and educator Dan Belmont as he leads this nine (9) part series designed to help you build essential knowledge about the history, styles, varietals, and exciting innovations of New York wine.

From our first ‘deep dive’ session, “Welcome to New York,” to subsequent classes on our major varietals and wine regions, this educational opportunity will be unlike any other and extremely valuable to winery and vineyard leaders, tasting room and marketing staff, as well as to trade, media, and consumers who are champions of New York wine. Tasting components are part of each session – with recommended wines for each session to be announced in advance of the seminar date.

“Dan’s unique knowledge of and enthusiasm for the wines of New York made him the perfect partner to help us update the New York Wine Reference Guide,” said Valerie Venezia-Ross, Director of Programs & Marketing. “His charisma and engaging teaching style will now bring the pages to life through each weekly class and each glass of wine. We look forward to welcoming industry, trade, and media from around the world to join us.”

This series will be provided free to all NYWGF Winery and Grower Members. Non-members can purchase the full live series for $225. Attendees must register for the full series and will be provided with seminar recordings if unable to attend live. Please note that suggested wines must be purchased separately and are not included with registration.
