We just restocked our wallets and purses with some more NY Wine Spotting drop cards. You can too - just print out the cards on our website:
Our #NYWine of the week is #Merlot - who makes your favorite?
Know your NY Wine Regions: Also known as Chautauqua, the Lake Erie Wine Region is located along 50 miles of Lake Erie and is home to the oldest and largest Concord grape-growing region in the world.
NY Wine Spotter Jim sent this in from Mario's Italian Restaurant and Catering. It's a picture of a table card listing NY & Finger Lakes wines! With Heron Hill Winery, Fox Run Vineyards & Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars.
Vidal Blanc is our #NYwine of the week. The grape does especially well in the Finger Lakes, Niagara and Western NY regions. What's the best thing about Vidal Blanc?
There are still a few spots left at the Hicks & McCarthy Restaurant wine pairing dinner with #NYwines. The dinner is this Friday at 6:30pm and is hosted by Holly Howell!
The North Shore Grill wine spotted themselves! Not only do they have #NYwine on their list, but the 25 wines are featured in their own section of the list. Love it!
Thanks to Margie Ann for NYWineSpotting these 4 NY wines at Off The Hook Raw Bar & Grill in Astoria. Where else have you spotted NYS wines in NYS restaurants?
Our #NYwine of the week is Catawba. Pairing suggestion: hot wings. What else do you like to eat when you have a glass of Catawba?

WELCOME TO NY WINE SPOTTING
NY Wine Spotting is a grassroots movement to get more of our local wines into our local restaurants. Our movement starts in the Finger Lakes Region, one of the top Wine Regions in NYS, with an emphasis on getting more Finger Lakes wines into Rochester restaurants. As we have success in this Region, we are spreading our message and mission across the state helping all NY Wine Regions get their wines into their local restaurants too!
