Welcome to New York! Introduction to New York Wines

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

We agree with Eric Asimov who noted in the New York Times that “New York is the third largest wine- producing state in the country, after California and Washington. Yet it doesn’t get nearly the respect it deserves.” Fortunately, much has changed in the last few years and information about New York wines is being sought out by all levels of consumer, trade, and media. This session will empower you with knowledge and introduce you to the major regions, grapes, and styles of New York State wine, and provide an overview of statewide geography, geology, climate & history. Participants will gain conversational-level broad knowledge of New York State wine and leave excited about the upward trends in both quality winemaking and viticulture in New York State.

The Rieslings of New York

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

Riesling is New York’s most widely planted Vitis vinifera grape variety and grown all our state’s major AVAs. Being produced in a range of styles from bone dry to dessert wine, Riesling has certainly established itself as the flagship variety of the Finger Lakes region and received national and international acclaim from all corners of the trade. The potential of this grape is infinite, and this session will highlight the varying styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make New York Riesling so special.

Introduction to Cabernet Franc

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

Cabernet Franc is the parent of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot but, somehow, this grape is often forgotten or not given time to shine (parents out there can totally understand...), fortunately that is changing. Cabernet Franc is now being grown and vinified in most of New York’s major AVAs. Suited to a cool climate this grape can produce fine red wines that are light to medium bodied with vibrant acidity and firm tannins. The quality level achieved across our state’s different regions statewide has certainly established the grape as a flagship red variety. As with our other sessions, the objective of today’s seminar will be to highlight the varying styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make New York Cabernet Franc so special. Join us to learn more!

The Sparkling Wines of New York

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

Sparkling wine is, quite literally, deeply rooted in New York State history and is produced in all the state’s major AVAs. In a February 2022 article for JancisRobinson.com, Elaine Chukan Brown suggested that sparkling wine could be the key to shifting New York’s perception of being “value -focused” to a region producing “prestige wines.” As sparkling wine is such an integral part of our past, it makes sense that New York winemakers look to historical methods beyond the traditional method bubbles. Production methods vary—from forced carbonation and Charmat (tank) method using native and hybrid grapes, to traditional (Champagne) method using Chardonnay, Pinot Noir. As with our other sessions, the objective of today’s seminar will be to highlight the varying production styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make New York Sparkling wines so special. Join us to learn more!

Introduction to New York’s Native and Hybrid Wines

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

In New York, the native—wild grapes—were here first. Forming the backbone of the early New York wine industry, native varieties (the majority of which are Vitis labrusca) came into use when it became apparent that European vines lacked the disease resistance and winter hardiness to survive. The term “hybrid” refers to a crossing (accidental or deliberate) between two species of grape, most often these are North American or Asian crossed with Vitis vinifera from Europe. Most of the hybrids used in New York today were developed by French hybridizers who did the bulk of their work from 1880 to 1950. These grapes underpin much of New York wines’ unique, local flavor - which needs to be better understood and explored. With climate change and sustainability top of mind, the potential of these grapes is exciting. As with our other sessions, the objective of today’s seminar will be to highlight the varying production styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make hybrid and native grapes so special. Join us to learn more!

Welcome to Finger Lakes Wine Country

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

The Finger Lakes region of northwest New York is known for its picturesque grouping of narrow glacial lakes—some of the deepest freshwater lakes in the United States. Over the past two decades, the Finger Lakes have become known as one of the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions—especially for Riesling—in North America. To be sure, the contribution of independent, family-owned wine growing operations to that prestigious achievement cannot be understated. This session will weave the history of the region together with an exploration of the varietals claiming the spotlight today. From Riesling to Cabernet Franc, from Chardonnay to Pinot Noir, this session will showcase the unique and varied production styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make the Finger Lakes region so special. Join us to learn more!

Welcome to Hudson Valley Wine Country

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

One of the oldest and most historically important wine areas in the US, the Hudson River Valley can be credited for pioneering many of the innovations that helped the NY wine industry grow. This area, which includes the Hudson River Region AVA and Upper Hudson AVA, is proud of its long-standing agricultural and viticultural history as well as the diverse alluvial soils and microclimates found throughout. The Hudson Valley has been a crucible for the development of French American hybrids, however, it’s vinifera that we’re seeing increased plantings of. This session will take you on a journey up the 315-mile Hudson River to experience the unique and varied production styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make the Hudson River Valley so special. Join us to learn more!

Welcome to Long Island Wine Country

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

Long Island, the southeastern tip of New York State, is the largest island in the contiguous United States, stretching from the East River into the Atlantic Ocean and shouldered by the Long Island Sound. In contrast to the grape growing industries of the Finger Lakes and the Hudson Valley, Long Island began on a foundation of vinifera vines. Long Island has made a name for itself by producing stunning red wine. Merlot forms the base for Long Island’s many awarding winning red “Bordeaux style” blends. However, that is just the (delicious) start to the Long Island wine journey. This session will transport you to Southampton and the North Fork to experience the unique and varied production styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make Long Island wines so special. Join us to learn more!

Welcome to the Niagara Escarpment

Virtual Event
Virtual Event Virtual Event

This wine region derives its name from the Niagara Escarpment, a limestone ridge that runs for over 650 miles through the Great Lakes Region. While the region has a history that includes native grapes and hybrids, a warming climate and improved growing techniques are changing everything. The power of Lake Ontario in combination with the slope of The Niagara Escarpment—to moderate temperatures, extend the growing season, and protect against winter damage —is allowing more vinifera grape varieties to pop up on the landscape. And once planted, the soil and climate conditions of our unique terroir squeeze every ounce of flavor from the fruit. This session will take you on a walk through the gravelly limestone and clay loam soil to experience the unique and varied production styles, approaches, terroir, and flavors that make wines from the Niagara Escarpment so special. Join us to learn more!
