New York State of Wine: The Elements (Water)
February 21 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
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. 2 – Water
Did you know that New York State alone has more than 7,600 freshwater lakes, ponds and reservoirs? The second episode of New York: Earth, Water & Wine will dive into one of the most influential elements to New York wine regions—Water. Join host Jamie Goode and winemakers from the Finger Lakes and Long Island, to discuss how the proximity to water (both maritime and continental) can be a blessing … and a curse, but ultimately, creates distinct wine grape growing circumstances that result in the beauty and diversity of New York wines.
