Jim Trezise of the New York Wine and Grape Foundation reports:
"Du riesling made in USA" is the headline
of a major piece by wine writer Bernard Burtschy in Le Figaro, the
largest circulation daily newspaper in France.
Bernard is one of the
judges at our New York Wine & Food Classic, so has had the
opportunity to sample a wide range of New York wines, and is
particularly impressed with Finger Lakes Rieslings.
The lengthy article
is accompanied by an iconic photo of vineyards above Keuka Lake, as
well as one of me with Gov. Andrew Cuomo during the Governor's Cup
Wine Tour. Le vin de New York: c'est magnifique!
