LODI, N.Y. (February 1, 2018) -  Wagner Vineyards Estate Winery returns to the David H. Koch Theater on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 as the exclusive wine sponsor for the New York City Ballet’s Annual Luncheon. Participating in last year’s acclaimed Fall Fashion Gala chaired by Emmy Award Winning Actress Sarah Jessica Parker, the one hundred percent estate-grown Finger Lakes winery became the first-ever New York State wine producer to showcase wines at the New York City Ballet.

Guests of the Luncheon include celebrated figures in the worlds of business, culture, fashion, philanthropy and media, who will enjoy the following wines from Wagner Vineyards:

  • 2014 Caywood East Vineyard Dry Riesling (single vineyard expression)
  • 2016 Dry Rosé of Cabernet Franc
  • 2012 Meritage (Bordeaux blend)

“We are honored to be recognized alongside such a distinguished organization as the New York City Ballet,” said Katie Roller, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Wagner Vineyards. “It’s a privilege to be able to support the arts in such a profound way and simultaneously raise awareness for the fantastic products that are being grown and made right here in New York State.”

This year’s special program honors New York City Ballet’s Co-Founding Choreographer, Jerome Robins, whose remarkable contributions to the worlds of ballet and musical theater have made an unforgettable impression on both art forms. The afternoon will feature personal stories, insider experiences, and live performances from his most unforgettable pieces, followed by an elegant seated luncheon on the Promenade of the David H. Koch Theater.
