Ann grew up in Rochester, New York and the New York City suburbs of New Jersey; John grew up in the same New Jersey suburbs. After working in teaching (Ann) and Peace Corps and business (John), they moved to Yates County in 1973 to grow grapes and raise their family on 100 acres overlooking Seneca Lake. Ann managed the vineyard and raised the children, while John worked for Cornell University at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. The grapes from their vineyards were first sold to the Taylor Wine Company and eventually to wineries across New York State. In 1990, Ann and John Martini opened Anthony Road Wine Company with wines made from the 1989 crop. The first building was a renovated farm shop and the equipment was at best an eclectic collection of used and borrowed tanks and pumps and an old apple press. Their children, Peter, Sarah, Maeve and Elizabeth, have been involved in the vineyard and winery throughout their growing years and beyond. Peter and Elizabeth are now full-time employees of Anthony Road Wine Company. The joy of growing grapes and producing fine wines still motivates and excites the Martini family…more than a quarter-century after the first vines took root. Read less

As the wine-makers notes depict, this is a semi-dry wine, but is still classically a Riesling. The color is a very light yellow and perfectly clear. The nose is pleasant and crisp; full of fruit and slight woody tones. The initial taste is medium bodied, but fades to light very quickly. The tongue is coated with a sensation of flavor that envelopes the sweet and slight bitter notes, but is still present. The follow-through is sharp, but smooth at the same time. The fruit developes after a few sips and increases in its complexity. For the novice or for the experienced, I recommend this wine highly. You will not be dissatisfied.

Nice and crisp, not as sweet as most rieslings. Nice for the summer. I did not notice the woody tones, but my taste is not as refined as others. I am a newbie in the wine tasting. I do, however, prefer rieslings from Germany over the domestics.

This was actually a very nice wine crisp acidity and nice citrus notes and sharp minerality. Actually quite and enjoyable and a value Riesling. One I would definitely look for again and what I look for in a dry riesling. One of the better new yorkers i have had to date.

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. As we have commented in the past, good dry Riesling can be a bit hard to find, but this one gets it right when it comes to varietal fruit and focus, and it steers clear of the bitterness that under-mines so many of its ilk. Just a bit bigger-bodied and slightly oily in feel, but nicely balanced and always light on its feet, it will do the trick in washing down various milder fish dishes and should shine when matched up with fresh trout.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. This moderately sweet effort is styled in a plush, slightly more mouthfilling style, yet, if favoring a certain peachy richness, it is still balanced by fine acidity and never threatens to become soft or cloying. It will make delicious drinking on its own or with the likes of spicy Thai fare, and, like all well-structured Rieslings, it will develop quite well for a number of years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Slightly sweet by our standards and fairly juicy, but styled in a somewhat more delicate vein with hints of fresh white peaches and pears peeking out here and there, this rounded and very amicable Riesling gets a welcome lift from back-palate acidity and brightens as it goes. We like it by itself but suspect that we would even more impressed if it were teamed at the table with crab cakes or lightly seasoned scallops in a chorizo foam.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now.

This delicious halbtrocken-style riesling has a fresh, lemony fruit scent and flavors that are supple and generous, with a driving, energetic acidity that will stand up to something spicy, like Thai-spiced green-lipped mussels.

Off-dry, with tasty, lively peach, banana and pineapple notes that stay focused on the lemon pound cake-tinged finish. Very friendly. Drink now.
