Riesling Makers Descend on New York City

Last week three wonderful winemakers, a well regarded grower, and a highly acclaimed Finger Lakes author descended on New York City.

At Union Square Wines Evan Dawson was signing his new book, celebrating the rise of Finger Lakes wine, Summer in a Glass. Evan is clearly on of the rising stars of wine writing and journalism.

Pouring their wines as the signing were David Whiting of Red Newt, Oskar Bynke of Hermann J. Wiemer, Morten Hallgren of Ravines, and grower Sam Argetsinger of Argetsinger Vineyards. These are some of the best riesling makers in New York state. This was a momentous occasion, and in impressive display of winemaking prowess.

Also in atendance were LennThompson (Editor-in-Chief) and Aaron Estes (Cheese Editor) of the New York Cork Report, where Evan is managing editor.
