Address/Map:New York City, NY


The vine covered slopes above the deep, glacial Finger Lakes - Cayuga, Keuka and Seneca - offer winemakers a wide array of microclimates and terroir to work with. This cool growing region favors aromatic varieties such as Riesling and Gewurztraminer as well as delicious Chardonnays in the style of crisp Chablis. Complex methode champenoise style sparkling wines thrive in this environment too. Warmer, south facing vineyards ripen Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Merlot while late harvest varietals make exquisite dessert style wines. Take a personal taste tour of the wine regions surrounding the principal Finger Lakes where you will find the largest concentration of wineries outside of Napa Valley. Taste 9 wines - three form each Lake area - that will include Herman Wiemer, Dr. Konstantin Frank, Anthony Road, Treleaven, Heart and Hands, Heron Hill, Hosmer, Wagner and Hunt Country Vineyards. This event will be held at The Astor Center. Price: $45.00
