Are you as obsessed with wine as much as we are? Do you think the only drunk worth achieving is a good, classy wine drunk?

Actually, we don't even need to deal in such extremes. All you have to do to qualify for this great news is think that attending a wine festival would be really fun.

Since we really can't think of anyone who wouldn't think a wine festival is really fun, this is great news for everyone.

The NYC Winter Wine Festival is back, and it'll be held on Saturday, February 6th at the PlayStation Theater. We will pause so you can mark the date on your calendar accordingly. 

Go ahead. We can wait. 

All done there? Perfect. There are two sessions of crazy wine drinking during the NYC Winter Wine Festival. Session one will be from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and session two will be from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The festival's producers have scoured the world to find the tastiest wines, and you'll have the chance to savor them all.


Of course, as any good alcohol event would, there will also be delicious food, and some excellent music for you to jam to. Specifically, two-time Soul Train Music Award winner Alex Bugnon will delight the crowd with live jazz.

Essentially, the PlayStation Theater will be morphed into a stunning indoor vineyard.

What does a good vineyard have? Oh, that's right: delectable hors d'oeuvres and artisanal treats. You're going to need to fill up on food if you're going to be drinking for three hours, right?

Right. The participating wine distributors will select the grapes from France, Italy, Spain, South Africa, California, New Zealand, Australia, Chile, Argentina, Portugal, Japan, Austria, and Germany.

You get it. The wine is international.  There will be more than 250 varieties of wine, and you will have three hours of free rein to sample them all.
