WEEKEND WINO COVERS FINGER LAKES WINES
One of my favorite blogs is Weekend Wino, whose writer is Rob Lane. It's funny, irreverant, and filled with all kinds of cool stuff related to the Finger Lakes.
I've posted some notes to two articles I liked very much: 1. 2007 Finger Lakes Weekend Wino Wine Awards- White Wines and 2. His highlights from James Molesworth's recent NY Riesling ratings
Enjoy his columns and more importantly, listen to his advice.
2007 Finger Lakes Weekend Wino Wine Awards- White Wines
When we last went to commercial break at The Finger Lakes Weekend Wino Wine Awards show, we had just announced the winners for Favorite Red Wines (click here to see the post for Favorite Finger Lakes Red Wines of 2007) and our host, Conan O’Brien was cracking bad jokes like "Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it’s up to women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with." (Can‘t wait until the Hollywood writer‘s strike is over). Return from commercial break (seat fillers in place) and cue Conan.
Conan: Welcome back to The Something Something Wine Something? I really need to get a new agent and stop doing these low budget events. Well anyway, here are the winners for Favorite Finger Lakes White Wines of 2007 as chosen by some doofus calling himself the Finger Lakes Weekend Wino, who visited 81 Finger Lakes wineries and tasted over 600 Finger Lakes wines in 2007.
