I haven't been tasting on the east coast, but I've heard very positive things about the Finger Lakes region of New York and the up and coming wines of Virginia, though I must say it's pure hearsay from me since I haven't tasted them myself!

Hi!! We are also dying to try the Finger Lakes Wines! We haven't gotten there for a trip quite yet but it is on our "Must do ASAP list" ! We have also heard so many great things, and we have some friends there that have confirmed!
We have recently been to North Carolina (Yadkin Valley) and had some wonderful wines! They are calling it the new Napa Valley due to how fast they are growing in the number of wineries!

I'll echo your enthusiasm regarding finger lakes. My other half has been doing sommelier school this year, and his instructor (this amazingly knowledgeable woman named DJ Kearney) HIGHLY recommended that we go. We haven't had time (yet). I'd love to hear more about the region.
