Drink Local: Wines of New York State
"Drink local!" has become a popular slogan as New York State's wine industry has taken off, and quality has seen a huge upswing of late. We're excited to show off our favorite wines from our home turf! Did you know New York State has been producing wine for over 400 years?
We're proud to say that world-class wines are coming out of the Finger Lakes, Niagara Escarpment, and Long Island! We'll taste and cover: major appellations, our current favorite producers and grape varieties. 

This class is supported by the New York Wine & Grape Foundation as part of the NY Drinks NY Program.
