New York Wine

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

  • Hermann J. Wiemer Finger Lakes Ny 2003

    Snoothrank:

    This wine seems to have mellowed out. Still has crisp acidity, but the apple-y aromas have given way to a more supple and softer mouthfeel of melon and baked pear with a touch of honeyed sweetness. Read More

  • Salmon Run Pinot Noir 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Not sure if I'm crazy about this one. It's very light, almost effervescent, but it doesn't do anything. The flavor just sits on my tongue and doesn't go anywhere or blossom into anything.
