Boundary Breaks new tasting room

A few weeks ago my wife and I had the chance to visit Bruce Murray and his wife at their newly opened tasting room and warehouse.   Until now, tasting were only available by appointment and they were held in the couple's kitchen.   The new tasting room reflects their love of clean architecture styles....

FLX Wienery

My wife and I finally got to stop at FLX Wienery on Rt 14 near Dundee NY. Why have we waited so long? There's an extension lunch menu, a fantastic selection of wines, beers and sodas. You can even  bring your own bottle and they'll  uncork it for free! My K-town burger was perfectly done... Continue Reading →

We'll be visiting Kemmeter Wines this Saturday to spend time tasting Johannes Reinhardt's fine Rieslings.

The Malbec meeting of #project18, exploring the 18 noble grapes. No clear winner in this lot, mostly from Argentina, one from California and one from the Finger Lakes! There was an interesting mix from too much acid and tannins to almost none.

Oceane Vineyards – Sugar Loaf NY

Located off a picturesque road near Sugar Loaf NY, Oceane Vineyards is a new (2 year) vineyard in the Hudson Valley.  We had a tasting of the six wines for sale, and found each one interesting in it's own way.  The biggest surprise is that they've been growing vinifera grapes in Orange Count NY for...
