A fun event designed by people that love wine


Sample wines from near and far.  At the Albany Wine Festival you'll sample wines from New York's fantastic wine regions and beyond.  If you like a particular wine you can purchase a bottle of it and take it home with you.


There will be food to sample.  After all, what goes better with wine than food, right?  Grab a sample of wine and peruse the fantastic offerings of our partner vendors.  Sample something you like?  Purchase some and take it home.

Frequently asked questions

Where do I park?

Can I bring my dog?

There is a parking garage across the street.  As this event takes place on a weekend there will also be plenty of stree parking.
Please don't laugh, we get asked this question frequently.  Service animals are welcome but house pets are not allowed.

Are children allowed?

Can my Designated Driver attend with me?

This is an "adult only" event.  We understand that some people would like to bring children to this fun event.  While we empathize with this thinking we've made the decision to keep this event 21 and older.  Our philosophy is this event is an opportunity to relax and do something for yourself.
This event is for guests 21 and over.  Your designted driver can drop you off and pick you up at a designated location but cannot attend if they are under 21.  You also have the option of choosing to go to and from the event via Lyft and UBER.  Designated Drivers over the age of 21 may enter the event and join all festivities other than the wine sampling.
