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.

  • Lieb Cellars Cabernet Franc Reserve North Fork of Long Island 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Light cherry and raspberry fruit aromas with a candied sugar quality and a hint of wildflower. Nicely fruited and pleasantly herbed on the palate, with dark raspberry and crispy cranberry fruit flavors, good fresh acidity and a palate that's light on its feet, a touch of blueberry and warming tannins on the finish.

  • 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.
