Luca Maroni’s SensofWine NYC will be held at Cipriani 42nd Street for the second year in a row this February 4. Maroni, a noted Italian wine expert, will showcase 100 wines from over 40 producers. Last year’s event was a huge success with more than 1200 attending.
The walk around tasting is divided into a special two hour session reserved for members of the wine trade and restaurant industry and the press which runs from 3:00pm to 5:00 pm. Consumers and the trade/press can all attend from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. The cost of the event for consumers is $35. Alta Cucina members pay $30. In order to sign up for the event, please go to Alta Cucina’s store to buy tickets.
Maroni has created his own tasting method which evaluates different sensory elements. He gives each wine a numerical vote and publishes a wine guide with his ratings on an annual basis. Maroni hosts a huge SensofWine event in Rome every November, often attended by 30,000 people.
Don’t miss out on this event if you are in town on February 4. Last year was a fabulous evening and this year will surely be one as well.
