New York Wine

Though the first successful North American wine production is often credited to California, New York is where the industry was first pioneered in the United States. The Dutch and Huguenot settlers were the first to cultivate wine grapes in the 16th century. The oldest continuously operating winery, the Brotherhood Winery (which produces strictly sacramental wines, which is how they got around the Prohibition), first known as Jacques Brothers, was established in 1837. The country’s first bonded winery, the Pleasant Valley Wine Company (also known as the Great Western Wine Company), was established in the 1860s in Steuben County. 

 
For a long time, New York wines languished behind the high reputations of its west coast rivals. Most of the wines produced were labrusca varieties such as Concord, Diamond and Baco Noir, mostly in sweet styles that were embraced by certain drinkers, but ignored by much of the “serious” wine community.

New York on Snooth

  • Lamoreaux Landing Riesling Ice Finger Lakes 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly savory aromas of concentrated honey and orange blossom. Focused, juicy and sweet on the palate with thick creamy mouthfeel and bright fruit notes of ripe apple, honeyed pear and clementine juice, this is pleasant and sweet. Read More

  • Mcgregor Riesling Semi-Dry 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Light floral aromas. A nicely zesty acidity comes out of the glass and mixes with minerality and a stony, steely finish. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Lieb Cellars Blanc de Blancs Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Soft hay, white blossom and pear aromas. A hint of sweet spice on entry, this tingles on the palate and comes with fresh lemon, pink grapefruit and a full texture. Turns creamy on the finish, with pastry cream and butter, a touch of tangerine and a light citrus and apple finish. Read More

  • You must rent a limo and tour Seneca lake. Go through a company that knows the wineries well. There are too many to stop at all and there are some real gems in the mix. Rieslings are the traditional highlight, but other types competes for attention, too! The Gewurztraminer is excellent.
