Rieslings are great!!! But others as well

Wine & Spirits magazine has published a special issue and 1st Annual Insider’s Guide with the cover title, “Conversations&Tastings with 50 Masters of Place”.

The various writers, sommeliers, and others divided up the world, with international Riesling authority Stuart Pigott profiling the Finger Lakes as a region that has changed dramatically in the past dozen years due to a passionate focus on quality and experimentation, especially with Riesling wines but others as well.

His narrative is sprinkled with specific examples of his points from several wineries: Boundary Breaks, Red Newt, Red Tail Ridge, Hermann J. Wiemer, Keuka Spring (Gewurztraminer) and Anthony Road (Vignoles).  His first visit was in 2004, when he was blown away by the region’s natural beauty, though not many of the wines; but on his next visit just six years later (and now six years ago) it was clear that major change–dramatic improvement–was underway.
