This is our favorite Wine Event of the year and we have been attending for years. Our main website KensWineGuide.com grew out of my notes from this event. This year’s event will be the 18th annual. The Grand Tasting showcases over 450 international and domestic wineries from 13 countries pouring over 1,800 different wines for you to sample. It is the largest trade and consumer wine event in the country. It takes place on Saturday, January 24 and Sunday, January 25, 2009 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA.
In addition to tasting plenty of terrific wines, there will be seminars for all levels of wine-lovers. These seminars will be led by world-renowned wine experts such as Gloria Maroti Frazee from Wine Spectator, Gary Vaynerchuk, wine expert and star of WineLibraryTV.com, and Randy Sheahan, editor of the Quarterly Review of Wines.
The Expo opens from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm for the Trade. Then it opens to the public from 1:00 pm- 5:00 pm. For information on the event or to order tickets visit http://www.wine-expos.com/Wine/Boston/
