CNY offers wines to match every taste

Time was when you wanted a taste of wines made in New York you were forced to drive an aimless tract of dirt or two-lane roads looking for tiny signs tacked on to utility poles or posted on sticks roadside. And, frankly when you found one, the wines weren’t really that good. In a slow time roll forward, those fledgling wineries changed. Grapes were grown smarter. The winemaking got better. More new wineries opened. Today, nearly 300 wineries operate in New York, many in the Finger Lakes area. World-class wines are produced and hundreds of thousands of people visit each year.
