NY Wine Spotting is on Fire!

The NY Wine Spotting movement officially kicked off in July with our kick-off event at Casa Larga Vineyards. Since then we’ve gained momentum with television appearances and press. Our participating wineries and restaurants are growing. And our NY Wine Spotters are everywhere looking for NY wines and making recommends when they don’t see them.

Some notable accomplishments already:

• We’ve produced a television spot to promote the Top Ten NY Wine Spots during the holidays.

• We’ve appeared on WHAM 13 Morning News and ROC City Tonight. And have been heard on WXXI radio.

• We’ve had several articles written about the movement in notable publications like the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, Syracuse Post Standard, Syracuse New Times, Finger Lakes Times and Edible Finger Lakes to name a few.

• Influential food and wine bloggers have picked up the story including William Dowd and Eat First (CNY Food Blog).

• We’ve hosted the first of what will be many industry wine tour and tasting event to introduce wineries to local restaurants.
