    The Wine of New York's Finger Lakes

    in Entrepreneur

    According to Wine Enthusiast magazine, in 2014 New York State ranked as the third most important wine-growing region in the US, after California and Washington state.‎
     
    In this Interview, Rachel Bovard, a fellow upstate New Yorker and part-time employee at DCANTER, will share her  impressions of the wines of the Finger Lakes.  She is a Level 1 Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers and a Diploma Candidate in the Wine and Spirits Educators Trust (the pre-requisite for Master of Wine).  During the discussion Rachel will make the case for cool climate grapes, stating that lighter tasting wines should merit no less consideration than warm climate wines in California and France.

    Some of the wines and wineries she will touch on include a Cabernet Franc from Ravines Wine Cellars on Seneca Lake,  a Cabernet Sauvignon from Casa Larga south of Lake Ontario, and a dry Gewurtztraminer from Herman J Wiemer.  Others include a Cabernet Franc made from Finger Lakes grapes at the Oenology Winery in Brooklyn.
     
    We will also note some of the tourist attractions in the area and the Finger Lakes Wine Festival July 10-12 where you can  taste these wines for yourself!  A good reference for the show is Evan Dawson's book on the region, "Summer in a Glass".

    Our show host Gary Vaughan is an avid winery tourist and blogger of the Delmarva Winery and Brewery Journal.
