These will be the biggest NYC wine trends of 2020. So, if you’re a wine lover like we are, keep on reading! And…enjoy!

Curiosities City Secrets NYC Wine Trends by Kelsey ChancePeople in the United States are drinking more wine than ever before, and New Yorkers are among the top 5 wine drinkers in the country. That said, we’re here to share with you the biggest NYC wine trends of 2020!

Whether it’s a gathering with friends at a trendy tapas restobar or just a regular night watching “The Witcher” on Netflix, nothing can be more celebratory or relaxing than having a glass or two of vino.

In 2020, wine drinking is about to get even better as insiders predict the arrival of new wine trends to shake up your drinking experience.

From innovative packaging to a fun and fizzy drink, these are the biggest wine trends to look out for in 2020.


Canned red and white wine

The latest wine trends in Australia made their way to NYC in last September’s Wine Australia Tasting at Union West in Chelsea, and the new wines have been a part of the city’s diverse wine culture ever since.

A vacation in Australia is the trip of a lifetime for many New Yorkers, and many celebrate it with local wines – you can buy Shiraz wine from Qantas to celebrate your first flight to the country or pop open a bottle of Australian Merlot while camping with friends on the Outback.

Australian favorites are widely available in NYC since the Union West event, and the availability of canned wine makes reliving vacation memories even easier for New Yorkers.

Even more distributors are predicted to release canned versions of their best-selling wines. Canned rosé was the drink of choice among millennials in the summer of 2018 and 2019. But, in the new year, expect to see more people enjoying traditional red and white wines packaged in portable containers.

These new canned wines, along with other innovations in the wine industry, will likely be showcased at the Vinexpo New York 2020 from March 2nd to 3rd, at the Jacob K. Javits Center.


Orange wine

Curiosities City Secrets NYC Wine Trends by Court Cook

We’re all familiar with red, white and pink wine, but orange wine is about to be big in the new decade.

Wine takes on the sunny hue when grape juice is fermented with the skins of the white grape. This is why orange wine is also called a skin-contact wine.

It has a slightly different taste from traditional white or red wines, and goes well with beef or fish. So, it’s a good choice if you have yet to master food and wine pairings.

You can taste this type of wine at some New York wineries such as the Red Hook Winery, Channing Daughters, and Chamber Street Wines.

Oh, and have you heard of Green wine? Try them at the cool hotspot, Beco, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!


Fizzy and affordable Piquette

Sustainable wine is starting to become more popular nowadays, so make your wine drinking experience more eco-friendly by drinking Piquette.

This drink isn’t exactly classified as a type of wine, as it’s made by adding water to the pomace, which is the leftover stems, skins and seeds that the winemaker discards after extracting the juice from the grapes.

This means that you’re basically drinking a beverage made from the byproducts of the wine making process. And, what you get is a fizzy drink that has a slightly sweet flavor with a bit of a sour tang.

Insiders are predicting that Piquette will be a lot more popular in the new decade due to its low alcohol content. You can find this type of drink at wineries such as Henry’s in Brooklyn.

The NYC wine culture is about to experience some welcome changes in the new decade. Be on the lookout for these wine trends, and enjoy discovering new wines in 2020.
