What is the essence of New York Wine? This week we chopped it up with the Queens native Thomas Pastuzak, Executive Wine Director at The Nomad Hotel. Thomas has spent the last few years shining a light on the New York wine region with brands Vinny & Empire Estate Riesling. Who better to dissect the parallel between New York wines & New York rhymes with the cru. You’re going to want to grab a bottle of Empire Estate or your favorite NY wine and vibe out with us.
