The Finger Lakes Wine Region of New York (FLX) is only a 5 hour drive from my home in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Having a World-Class wine-producing region so close provides my wife and me the luxury of making a trip to the area when the mood strikes us. During our trip last week we visited old favorites Herman J. Herman Winery and Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery while adding a new favorite Standing Stone Winery. All three of these wineries produce excellent Riesling along with other notable wines. Cool-climate white wines have always been this region’s claim to fame but on this visit I was curious to see first-hand how the development of the Saperavi grape was progressing. In the following series of posts I will give you my personal take on the wine, grapevines, trends and scenic views I encountered around these glacial lakes. Come along with me and see what’s new in the FLX.

I’ve tasted Finger Lakes wines at wine festivals before, but have not visited them. Looking forward to reading more about them from you!
We had a good time in the FLX and tasted some very good wines. The natural beauty of this region is amazing. I hope you have the chance to visit there someday.
Excited to see your reviews!
You would love it in the FLX. It really does rain Riesling up there! Believe me I know.
