The New York Wine & Culinary Center has announced its next installment of the Rendezvous with Riesling Event, now labeled the Riesling Release Party on Friday, May 16th at 7:00pm. Guest wineries will release their 2013 Riesling on this night, which will give participants exclusive samples of this year’s up and coming Finger Lakes’ Riesling contenders. 

“Our team is really excited to reinvigorate the Rendezvous with Riesling event with the Riesling Release Party,” said Taylor Kolbeck, NYWCC Tasting Room Manager. “It is an amazing opportunity to host almost 20 wineries at the NYWCC to share what they’ve been working on with the public. We are privileged to showcase all that our region has to offer.”
The first floor of The Center will be dedicated to the sampling of New York's signature varietal among other wines, food stations, culinary demonstrations, and dessert samples.
