Jul 31, 2014

The 2014 Wine Spectator Grand Tour lifted off April 29, as more than 1,200 wine lovers congregated at the New York Marriott Marquis to sample 225 of the world's finest wines. The vintners—flying in from as far as Australia—proudly represented four U.S. states and 15 other countries. An additional 1,800 people joined the mobile party as the tour touched down in Washington, D.C.'s Ronald Reagan Building and at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
