It’s been a long time coming, but the Finger Lakes wine region is going to get a little promotion in an upcoming streaming show.
“V is for Vino,” which is hosted by Vince Anter and is in season three will profile three different regions in the U.S. The Finger Lakes region is among them.
“I had been trying to put together this Finger Lakes episode for a few years because it’s such an important part of the American wine story,” Anter said. “The Finger Lakes also has such a different style of wine than people typically associate with West Coast wine. Cool climate wines are my absolute favorite, both when it comes to drinking on their own and food pairing, and this finally allowed me to show off the best cool climate wines in America.”
Here’s what the description of the show says:
Who says you can’t grow wine in the cold? Vince heads to western New York in the middle of winter to talk about the Finger Lakes wine region and its most important grape, Riesling. After exploring Watkins Glenn State Park, Vince visits Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery to learn about Konstantin Frank, and why wine in the Finger Lakes doesn’t exist without him. Next, he heads to Fox Run Vineyards and Sheldrake Point Winery to taste all sorts of styles of Riesling; dry, off-dry, sweet and aged. Finally, Chef Orlando (Rodriguez) cooks a four-course meal to pair with four Rieslings at Graft Wine + Cider Bar (in Watkins Glen).
