A Holiday Roundup Featuring New York Wines

Wine Pairing Suggestions for Holidays and Every Day!

With a world of choices for your holiday (and every day) table, why would someone choose a New York State wine over seemingly more well-known wines and regions? We answer with a consistent bold response and replace that question with… Of course, New York! Here are just a few reasons why.

New York is different. People might not know that in one corner we’re surrounded by the ocean. In another, we overlook two great lakes. In the middle, we’re home to lakes that are great not in size but in depth and in beauty. We’re cold and crisp. We’re breezy and warm. And no two regions are exactly alike. That makes wine of infinite variety…and that people will find to be unexpectedly great.

We encourage you to explore New York’s food friendly wines with, arguably, the most ‘foodie’ friendly holiday of them all next week. Let the New York Wines journey begin this year, right from the comfort of your own home. Then, we invite you to learn more and explore New York’s Wine Regions in person this winter! 

Need More New York Wine recommendations? We invite you to watch this fun, informative “New York Wines for Thanksgiving” video from 2020. Taste along with winemakers and host Dan Belmont in this timeless tasting session to find the perfect selections for this year!

There is no better pairing for your Thanksgiving feast, from appetizers to dessert, than New York wines. Perhaps a sparkler to kick things off, and a crisp dry Riesling or a playful Cabernet Franc to compliment rich foods – each part of your day can be accentuated with wine. Celebrate our local bounty, learn about our winemaking community, and see just how these wines can make your cherished holiday traditions even more memorable.
