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.

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.

  • Brooklyn Oenology North Fork of Long Island Merlot 2005

    I'm from Brooklyn so I have a soft spot for this wine. It's tangy, yet old world France. Old world meets new world. Easy drinker for an '05. No distinct flavors of note. Just a great drink. The $18 price tag is a little steep, but it's a pretty unique bottle with local artwork on the label. Read More
