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".

Plivitce Lakes - Croatia
Have your camera handy to take pictures of the national park that is made up a chain of 16 pristine lakes that set above each other and connected with spectacular waterfalls and cascades. They are nested in a jungle-like lush environment, abundant with flora and fauna. This is one of the most visited natural wonders and national parks in Europe and because of its treasured value is designated as a natural wonder and registered and protected under UNESCO natural monuments. There is no car traffic allowed within the park’s limits so be prepared to be on foot through the area.

ICERM Radio invites you to its Lecture Program on The Politics of Memory in the Great Lakes;
Featuring René Lemarchand, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida.
Date: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 4 pm in ET New York.
This lecture will cover Rwanda, Burundi and Eastern Congo, and will try to show how memorial phenomena (memory distorted, thwarted or falsified) continue to raise obstacles to peaceful co-existence in the region. In grappling with memorial issues, Prof. René Lemarchand draws heavily on Ricoeur's insights. His magnum opus on memory is an important contribution.
René Lemarchand is Emeritus Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida. He has written extensively on the history and politics of the Great Lakes region of Central Africa. His book on RWANDA AND BURUNDI (1970), received the Herskovits Award from the African Studies Association. His latest works include THE DYNAMICS OF VIOLENCE IN CENTRAL AFRICA (2009) and an edited volume on FORGOTTEN GENOCIDES: OBLIVION, DENIAL AND MEMORY (2012). He served as regional advisor on governance and democracy with USAID, first in Abidjan (1992-1996) and then in Accra (1996-1998). He served as visiting lecturer at the University of California at Berkeley, Brown University, Smith College, Concordia University (Montreal) and the Universities of Helsinki, Copenhagen, Bordeaux and Antwerp.
