What do Château Pichon Longueville Lalande, Château de Beaucastel, Taylor Fladgate, Sassicaia and Mayacamas have in common? These great estates will all be pouring their benchmark wines in one place Oct. 17–19, at the seminars for this year’s New York Wine Experience.

The annual Wine Spectator event draws thousands of wine lovers, from winemakers to sommeliers to consumers, to the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Two evening tastings present more than 250 great wines spanning 17 countries, all rated 90 points or higher by Wine Spectator. Two days of seminars adds depth to this extraordinary breadth. Attendees will sit down for diverse seminars featuring discussions by the brightest stars of the wine world, including the makers of Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2018. And since a wine event that’s all talk and no wine would not be much fun, guests will taste along with the speakers. More than four dozen of the best wines in the world will be poured.

Seminars present both vertical tastings from iconic wineries and horizontal tastings featuring the leading wineries of top regions. James Molesworth will explore ageworthy Bordeaux with the team behind Château Pichon Lalande; the tasting presents six vintages, including the 2016 (97 points), 2000 (95) and 1982 (98). For fans of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Marc Perrin will be pouring and discussing four vintages of his family’s Château de Beaucastel, including the 1989 (97), Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year in 1991.

Seminar guests will get to hear from some of the wine world’s leading lights and taste their wines.

Other regions in the spotlight include the super Tuscans of Italy’s Bolgheri region; grands crus of Burgundy’s Côte d’Or and Chablis; the mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards of Napa Valley; and emerging icons of Chile.

The weekend will also give a glimpse of some of the personalities that make the wine world so special, as wine stars discuss their passion. Christian Moueix of Bordeaux will share his Napa project Dominus. Tim Mondavi and his daughter Carissa will talk about Continuum, their deeply-rooted family’s next Napa Valley chapter. And winemakers including Mark Aubert, Morgan Twain-Peterson, Stephan von Neipperg and Priscilla Incisa della Rocchetta will discuss their wines that made the Top 10, including della Rochetta’s Sassicaia 2015 (97), the 2018 Wine of the Year.

And in case anyone is hungry, four of the restaurant world’s best will be back to pair great wines with creative dishes and give each other grief—José Andrés, Emeril Lagasse, Ti Martin and Mario Carbone all return to the stage.

Between two days of seminars, two nights of Grand Tastings and a Grand Award banquet celebrating the top wine programs of the restaurant world, the weekend will be like no other. For more information, visit NYWineExperience.com
