About this event
Empire State Wine Events brings back the newly-titled Capital Wine Festival. Sample wine, spirits, and food from over 40 vendors!
Wine, Spirits, Food, Music, and Fun!
Enjoy unlimited samples of wines and spirits from across New York State's fantastic wine regions. The Capital Wine Festival will be held at the Albany Capital Center on Saturday, April 22, 2023, from 1pm-9pm.
Purchase your favorite bottles for take-home and we will store them in the holding area until you are ready to leave. There will be food to purchase and eat on site as well as to sample. There will also be a few partner vendors selling personal care items or crafts.
In addition to sampling and shopping, you can enjoy:
- The self-guided Paint and Sip attraction. We'll have all the painting supplies laid out on tables for you to paint either from the example pictures or whatever you want. We'll have a space to lay out your paintings to dry, and you can pick them up to take home at the end.
- DJ with FREE photo booth so you can dance the night away.
- Wine glass with insignia for you to use for sampling and then to take home afterwards.
There are two sessions, so purchase your ticket for either Session 1 ($25), which is from 1pm-4pm, or Session 2 ($30), which is from 6pm-9pm, or the VIP ticket ($35), which gets you into the second session an hour early at 5pm. VIP tickets are also limited, so you will be able to enjoy sampling with a smaller crowd and shorter lines during the first hour.
