East Coast Wineries Shine at New York Wine Expo 2010

The New York Wine Expo kicked off tonight, Friday, at the Jacob Javitz Center. And many east coast winery personalities and winemakers were on hand. Above is Morgen McLaughlin of Finger Lakes Wine Country. She's done an incredible job promoting Finger Lakes wineries.

Throngs of New Yorkers...

Javier and his wife from Brotherhood Winery in the Hudson Valley

The Hudson Valley Wine Country booth was pouring Brotherhood, Millbrook, and Hudson-Chatham.

Jeff Jenssen & Mike DeSimone, the World Wine Guys, were prowling the aisles, laughing, tasting, and having fun. These guys know a lot about wine.
Despite the brutal snowy day, the hall was full and hopping.
