This past Saturday Uncorked Wine Festival made its first ever appearance in New York City where attendees were able to taste wines from over 50 wineries and buy from a selection of fine wines and cheeses to bring home! The Metropolitan Pavilion located in Chelsea was packed full of eager wine-lovers who were excited to learn about all different wines and take over the dance floor.
Featuring more than one hundred wines to sample, the Uncorked Wine Festival was the perfect event for attendees to get to know each wine and find new summer favorites. Staff graciously offered information about each wine and guests were encouraged to ask questions and carefully sample in order to pick the drinks that they liked best.
In addition to samples of local and international wines, this festival included fun activities that got the crowd excited and interacting with one another. Set in the middle of the venue was a video DJ who played popular music as well as throwbacks and remixes, all the while streaming music videos and photos of the dance floor. Guests were also able to send in live tweets to be posted on the big screen for the whole crowd to see! Finally, Uncorked featured a photobooth attached to a moving platform where attendees took photos of themselves with quirky props to share on the big screen and make memories.
