Finger Lakes Rieslings Launch
The Finger Lakes 2013 Vintage Rieslings Launch debuts on September 27, 2014 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EST. This event showcases approximately 20 wineries throughout the region. With more than 100 wineries, Finger Lakes is the largest American Viticulture Area (AVA) in New York.
Finger Lakes Rieslings
Wine has been produced in the region since the early 1800s, with the first winery opening in 1860. Cool climate grapes such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer are ideally suited for the area. However, Riesling is the most widely planted grape; and is the region’s most celebrated grape variety.
You are welcome to join in this evening’s event. If you’re lucky enough to be in the Finger Lakes region, then head out to the tasting room. If not, grab a bottle or two from your local wine shop and start tasting. Either way, the Finger Lakes Rieslings Launch will be a fun look into this emerging region.
