There is an incredible amount of diversity in climate and growing conditions throughout New York: from Long Island, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean, to Hudson Valley, the historic heartland of New York wine, to Niagara and the Champlain Valley on the border with Canada, to Finger Lakes, home to 650 miles of shoreline. New York wine is synonymous with extreme climate—from the influence of water on all sides to the varied soils from retreating glaciers and sea deposits—and with over 60+ wine grape varieties grown here, it’s no surprise this region thrives on diversity.
This three-part series, led by London-based wine writer and author Jamie Goode, celebrates the elements most integral to the wine regions of New York: Earth, Water, and Wine.
Ep. 1 – Earth
In this inaugural episode of the series, New York: Earth, Water & Wine, Jamie Goode will lead a panel of New York winemakers in a roundtable discussion to dig into Earth, namely, the diverse terroirs of New York’s growing regions. From the blue slate of the Finger Lakes to Long Island’s unique glacial soils, New York offers winemakers a dynamic home for countless varieties—find out what winemakers have to say about how soils impact their viticulture and winemaking decisions.
