Wine-by-the-glass OKd for State Fair

18 Aug

SYRACUSE, NY — Visitors to the Great New York State Fair this year will be able to purchase wine by the glass.

A new state law allows licensed liquor vendors throughout the fairgrounds to also sell 10-ounce glasses of wine. Numerous New York wineries are expected top take advantage of the opportunity to try reaching potential new customers.

The Uncork New York Wine Village will be in Restaurant Row this year, a move of 200 feet from its usual location. It will have an entrance on each side of Restaurant Row during the August 26-September 6 fair.

Tickets are now on sale through next Wednesday, August 25, at the Fair Box Office and at grocery stores and other outlets throughout the state. Locations can be found on the fair’s website.
