This past weekend was the Spring time version of the biannual Second Glass Wine Riot fest which was held at the 69th Regiment Lexington Amory event space on 68 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. It’s a multicity, twice a year wine party.
The booths were separated into wine regions and into wine varietals of mid-range wines that the large crowd of mostly young wine drinkers were soon swarming over.
There were lectures and food booths scattered about.
