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

  • Paumanok Cabernet Franc 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe cherry aromas with a hint of black pepper and spice. The aromas carry right through to the palate. This is a light bodied, tart, and refreshing wine. Paired very well with a summer salad. Read More

  • No, we didn't carry them by the husk, but last night Snooth moved from New York to Dallas. We've got a sparkling new set of shiny servers. They're powerful, they're RAIDed, and we're happy to have them.Back in the early days of Snooth, we were running on one server. It was kind of a junker, 2 gigabytes of RAM, one processor, but we were still tr... Read More

  • 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. Every sip would be forgettable - although that's not much help given the flashing lights in my rear-view mirror. Read More
