The 3rd Annual TOP OF THE LIST Tasting

Tuesday, May 10, at the Metropolitan Pavilion



Exclusive deal: 20% off VIP Early Admission and Seminars Tickets for Snooth users!

Wine & Spirits Magazine is presenting its 3rd Annual Top of the List Tasting; a benefit for Baykeeper NY/NJ on Tuesday, May 10, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC. This top-notch walk-around wine-and-food tasting event features great vino from more than 99 wineries (for a list of wineries, click here) and bites from 10 New & Notable New York City restaurants, including ABC Kitchen, Ai Fiori, and Lani Kai—plus oysters from Grand Central Oyster Bar, cheese from Artisanal, chocolate from La Maison du Chocolat, and lots more.

This year, there will be 3 special seminars/tastings presented in parallel to the main event at the Top of the List Tasting. These intimate seminars will be limited to a very small number of attendees—a mix of sommeliers, retailers, media, and…you! The seminars feature some amazing winemakers and sommeliers—not to mention great wines to sample.

Tickets to each seminar are normally $110, and include admission to the main tasting as well as a one-year subscription to Wine & Spirits Magazine. But Snooth users can use a special discount code (SNTHTOL11) to receive 20% off the seminar ticket price. It's a rare opportunity for a handful of serious wine lovers to rub shoulders with sommeliers and winemakers at a tasting not normally open to the public.

What’s more, Snooth users get 20% discount on VIP Early Admission tickets (normally $95 each), too. VIP Early Admission purchasers will gain access to the Grand Tasting Event at 6:00pm and be received by a champagne and caviar reception courtesy of Roederer Estate and California Caviar along with a one-year subscription to Wine & Spirits Magazine. You will be emailed information on how to activate your subscription.
