New York Wines and Ciders: Finger Lakes & Long Island

New York wines are SO hot right now, and they just keep getting bigger and better. Come try a few stand outs including Southold Farm's Sparkling Lagrein "Chasing Moonlight". The humble farm owners were written about in the NYT last week and we were sad to see they may be moving to Texas due to stupid NY zoning laws. But, we're telling you, you need to try this Lagrein. It's bonkers good and brings us pride knowing it's made so close to home. Here's the line-up below. We'll see you there, friends.
