Wines & Spirits: Wiemer and Sheldrake Among 35 Top American Wineries

TOP 100 WINERIES in the world cited by Wines & Spirits magazine include Sheldrake Point Vineyard and Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard, both in the Finger Lakes, in terms of quality.

The top 100 included 35 American wineries, with the selections based on blind tastings of 3,767 wines. Bob Madill and Oskar Bynke recently poured their wines at a special celebration in San Francisco with other great wines from world-class producers like Roederer, Shafer, Joseph Drouhin, and Schloss Johannisberg.

Congratulations to both, and thanks for carrying the New York flag.
