Listing upcoming events for the public and trade is not something that I normally do, but it seems that this month, wine events are falling like flakes from the sky. And so, rather than keep the goodies to myself, I thought I’d set a little snowball rolling…for in a couple of weeks, NYC will be blanketed in Bordeaux.
