Regional Wine Week runs thru Saturday, October 15th. To celebrate, the group “Drink Local” has invited everyone to submit essays on wine regions other than California, Oregon or Washington. Essay requirements are 47 words on the other 47 states. I choose New York.
New York’s wine regions of Lake Eire, Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley and Long Island possess distinct influences from the lakes, river and ocean they adjoin. Vineyards take on the essence of their surroundings to give the wine it’s ‘sense of place’. They are to be enjoyed worldwide.
