Crafted in New York, but inspired from everywhere, New York is a unique community of passionate producers who approach winemaking with a multitude of personalities and backgrounds—they’re not alike, and they like it that way. Wine has been made in New York since the 17th century and its unique history of hybrid cultivars paired with an increasing amount of planted Vitis Vinifera has positioned the region as one of the most diverse and resilient. In New York wines you’ll find subtlety, depth, and nuance; it’s no surprise that they’ve found a place on the global stage, alongside other great wine regions of the world.
This three-part series, led by wine writer and educator Kelli A. White, takes a look at New York wines side by side with other great wine regions of the world, exploring the common threads as well as the varied approaches to viticulture and winemaking.
