Winter Tasting to feature 150+ Wines plus Contemporary Jazz Live on Stage

New York, NY – January 21, 2014: New Jersey Wine Festivals will present their 2nd Annual New Jersey Winter Wine Festival at the Hilton Short Hills on Friday, February 21, 2014. The wine tasting event includes 150+ wines selected by the experts of the Wine Library, plus an array of light fare prepped by the Hilton’s AAA 4-Diamond award-wining chefs. The event also features a top contemporary jazz act performing throughout the evening, adding to the festive atmosphere.

Tasting tables located throughout the Hilton’s Grand Ballroom, Livingston Room and Patio Pavilion will feature a wide array of unique, quality wines from around the globe. Selections include wines from classic regions like Bordeaux and Rioja, plus newer styles from California, New York, Chile, Australia, and more.

”We’re delighted to return to the Hilton Short Hills with our winter tasting event featuring an array of wines curated by the experts of the Wine Library as well as tasty light accompaniments from the Hilton’s culinary team, and live music from guitarist JJ Sansavarino and his band,” notes S.W. Kimball, founder of New Jersey Wine Festivals. “For nearly a decade, our popular spring and fall wine festivals have packed the venue and we look forward to continuing the tradition with our winter event for years to come.”

Musical guest Joe “JJ” Sansavarino has reached millions with his music, touring the US, Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia, the South Pacific and the Caribbean. He has worked with the best in the business, both live and in the studio, and has appeared on hundreds of recordings. JJ’s music features diverse guitar styles including R&B, jazz, rock, fusion and his trademark ballad style.

In order for attendees to easily recollect and access their favorite wines from the event, this year’s festival will showcase and utilize Winevento, the free iPhone app that lets users Rate, Favorite, Save & Share wines at participating tasting events. An Android version of the app will be unveiled in early February.
