YOUR GUIDE TO WINE SPOTTING:
FINGER LAKES EDITION
This guide explains how to use social media as a NY Wine Spotter to stay connected to other NY Wine Spotters. It will give you urls, hashtags and all the necessary info you need to wine spot effectively.
RESTAURANT DROP CARDS
When you go into a restaurant and don’t find enough (or any) NY wines, leave an official NY Wine Spotting Drop Card with your bill. The Drop Card has a space for you to recommend your favorite NY wine or winery. You can also pick up 2-sided drop cards at participating wineries, and they’ll have the winery information already on them, along with some interesting buy-local facts.
RESTAURANT BILL STICKERS
When you go into a restaurant and find lots of NY wines on the menu, leave a sticker on your bill. It lets them know that you are a local wine lover and that they hit the spot by putting local wines on the menu. All you need for these stickers is a sheet of standard address labels (most will work, we used the Avery 5160 template). One sheet of address labels makes 90 stickers!
