What You'll Get

NYC Wine Company, a New York magazine Critics’ Pick, is widely respected for its fun, insightful wine-education classes. Beware of other wine schools, such as Franzia Academy, whose wine-academy brochure boasts:
By assisting Franzia in the production of our gourmet wines from start to finish, you’ll come away from our classes with a firsthand appreciation of our wines’ subtle flavors. Our rigorous coursework takes place in the famous Franzia Vineyard in the South of France. Your plane ticket to France is included in the price of the class. Once you arrive on the vineyard, you’ll enjoy the rustic pleasure of working off your ticket by stomping on Franzia grapes barefoot alongside other indentured servants of all ages, many trafficked from exotic places all over the world! After 12 semesters of rewarding study, you’ll be free to sample the classic Franzia wine-pairing all our employees love: crushed grape on bottom of foot.

NYC Wine Company’s founder is bona fide wine guru Andrew Harwood. Harwood has worked in nearly every facet of the wine industry over the last ten years. He’s studied in Hungary and all over France; he was the assistant wine director at Picholine right here in Manhattan; he was the assistant winemaker at Limerick Lane Cellars in Sonoma County; and he’s taught at Cornell University, City College of San Francisco, and Mercyhurst College.
NYC Wine Company is loved by all. New York magazine chose NYC Wine School as a critics’ pick, saying it “demystifies wine selection,” and New York Daily News featured Harwood’s favorite cheap wines in its “Cheap Wines Guide.”
So far NYC Wine Company has just two Yelp reviews, but both are a perfect five stars: > * “Andrew Harwood (the founder) was our instructor. He was quite informative and helpful. On top of our dessert wine, we had full glasses of 10 different types of wine. The grape variety for the wines included Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, & Malbek [sic]. The wine regions included Oregon, California, Argentina, Italy, and France. I can’t wait for my next class.” – Hideki K. > * “One of my best friends took me here and I LOVED IT! We took the Wine 101 class – a very laid back class. You get to try out 10 different wines with 4 cheeses. They also served bread. Andrew, the instructor, was funny and enlightening. I can finally go beyond my Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon lol.”– Sandra R.
