• Pride of NY Harvest Fest(s) near(s)

29 Oct

• The Pride of New York Harvest Fest will be held the weekend of November 6 and 7 at the New York State Fairgrounds near Syracuse.

• The Pride of New York Harvest Fest will be held the weekend of November 13 and 14 at the Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany.

Confused? Don’t be. The Albany event will be the 15th annual such event, celebrating and sampling wines and food products produced in the state. The Syracuse event is on tap for just the second year.

The original began in the Albany County suburb of Colonie’s Desmond hotel and convention resort, but has moved downtown where there is, theoretically, more parking as well as more elbow room although the Colonial Williamsburg design of the Desmond had much, much more atmosphere than the Empire State Plaza’s convention facilities.

In addition to the grand tasting rounds you can make, each event will offer a variety of seminars and demonstrations. As someone who presented wine demos and talks for nearly a decade at the Albany venue (no, not this year), I can recommend them for anyone who wants to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the fascinating aspects of the New York wine and food industries.

In Syracuse, the wineries scheduled to be pouring samples include:

Americana Vineyards & Winery
Ashley Lynn Winery
Atwater Estates Vineyards and Winery
