I had another thought about a theme, and welcome discussion.

New York wines.

New York State has 2 wine regions. The most well known is the Finger Lakes, located in central NY. Lots of local producers making a variety of white and some reds. Most of the whites are riesling variations, from dry to sweet and everything in between. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finger_Lakes_AVA

The Long Island wine region (mostly the north shore of LI) is also known for whites and some reds. https://www.newyorkwines.org/wine-regions/long-island and https://www.forbes.com/sites/courtne.../#35998967434f

I realize that many New York wines may not be available where you live. That said, you can pick up a bottle when you arrive in NYC, as we have plenty of wine shops where you can purchase NY wines. To keep it simple, wines should be start at $25.00 (exception for 2020) and go up to whatever you want to bring. As usual, Champagne and sweet after dinner wines are welcome.

We've never done a tasting of local wines. Maybe this idea can work.
