I love to go wine tasting. To me, this is very different than simply enjoying a glass of wine. Wine tasting allows me to sample multiple wines in one session to learn more about a winery, a region, a varietal or even different wine making techniques.
This is easy enough to do when you’re in wine country, but what you do when you have the wine tasting itch and there are no wineries around? I encountered this challenge last week when in NYC on business. I wanted to reward my team for their hard work with an afternoon wine tasting. But the closest wineries to Manhattan were just too far away. So I came up with an idea. I looked up restaurants that offered interesting yet affordable wines by the glass.
