Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced Grand Central Terminal’s first Taste NY wine and food store, and the operator is Southold’s own One Woman Wines and Vineyards.
One Woman won out over many others who applied to the MTA.
“We’re excited that this unique New York-based winery wants to engage in the upcoming Taste NY program,” MTA Director of Grand Central Terminal Development Nancy Marshall said. “One Woman’s Wines & Vineyards’ proposal aligns itself with the existing quality level of shopping and dining choices already offered in the Terminal and Taste NY’s mission to promote New York’s agricultural and farm-based foods.”
Items will range in price from $10 to $100, with displays of wine and food plus beer and spirits from Brooklyn Brewery, Hudson Bay Bourbon. McLure’s and Baldwin Hill will be among the food brands represented.
“We look forward to the opportunity to promote all the amazing food & beverage products that New York has to offer!” One Woman wrote on its Facebook page.
“As many as 750,000 people travel through Grand Central every day, which makes it the perfect venue to highlight New York’s world class food and wine to new customers,” Cuomo said. “Showcasing New York’s best food and wine in this iconic and widely utilized transit hub will help to boost business for our local producers, and ultimately grow tourism and economic activity in communities throughout the State. I encourage travelers to look out for the opening of this one-of-a-kind store in Grand Central, and experience more of what they’ve been missing about New York State.”
The store is scheduled to open in August 2014, taking over a spot currently occupied by Papyrus cards and stationery.
Taste NY launched in May 2013 as part of a state tourism program.
