East Coast Wineries Score in Wine Spectator Ultimate Buying Guide Edition



East coast wineries scored big in the Ultimate Buying Guide issue out on newstands between January 31 and February 29th. I'm posting some of the 84 to 90 scores that were awarded eastcoast wines, although many more were reviewed. I've abbreviated some of the wines' names, so you should pick up the issue for all the info.

Kudos to Channing Daughters, Lucas, Standing Stone,and Barboursville for having three or more wines rated in this category each. Also, top scores went to Corey Creek Riesling North Fork Late Harvest 2005 which scored a 90! And to Sharpe Hill Chardonnay North Fork Longisland Aimee Philips 2004 which also scored a 90!

East coast wines continue to grow in reputation.
