Shop for Wines from New York
New York wine has come a long way from exclusively being made from native grape varieties such as Catawba, Concord, and Niagara, to the vinifera revolution beginning in the 1950’s led by pioneer Dr. Konstantin Frank. Today, New York wines of many varieties receive critical acclaim from many publications such as Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine & Spirits.
The main areas of concentration of the New York wine industry tends to be in four geographical areas:
- The Finger Lakes
- Long Island
- Chautauqua/Lake Erie
- The Niagara Escarpment
The Niagara Escarpment is a particularly new and successful home to great New York vineyards. This region along the Niagara Frontier and close to Lake Ontario has been earning rave reviews from top wine critics in recent years.
