Directions and FAQ’s


Why the move from the Warwick Hotel?

After nearly 17 years, it will be sad to leave the Warwick. But costs have continued to skyrocket even after the economy weakened. In the end, we were being strangled by high hotel costs, not to mention a restrictive environment regarding food. We apologize to all EWS attendees who might be inconvenienced by our move. Figure it this way: the money you save will more than cover the cost of a few taxi fares.

Tell me about New York Vintners.

New York Vintners (www.newyorkvintners.com) is an innovative three-year-old store located a few blocks from City Hall. The store features a separate, comfortable, charming event space with a full kitchen. New York Vintners is run by Shane Benson, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, as is full-time Executive Chef, Christopher Meeker. Several other principals in NYV came from Italian Wine Merchants.

How will EWS tastings be different?

By adding a new component – food – we’ve made a good thing better. Something good will always be cooking at EWS before (and sometimes during) each tasting! You’ll notice a sharp upgrade in the quality of the baguettes we provide. We’re also going back to serving cheeses from Murray’s Cheese, arguably the best source for high-end cheese in America.

What about stemware?

More good news: Spieglau.

Are there any good restaurants nearby?

Are you kidding? You’re in Tribeca. There are tons of terrific restaurants within walking distance!

As a Member, I loved saving money. I’ll miss that.

No you won’t! You’ll be delighted by our new lower prices. In fact, two of the eight spring events are priced less than $100! And remember, it’s still smart to register early for all EWS tastings!
