New York Cork Report Hosts SECRETS OF THE FINGER LAKES Video

Evan Dawson is the author of the highliy acclaimed SUMMER IN A GLASS, which was one of the best wine books of last year. He's followed that up with a television special that he did at WHAM with his colleagues. You need to watch this video!!!

“Secrets of the Finger Lakes” aired original on September 12 at 8:30 p.m. on WHAM-TV and on

For those of you who missed it — or want to watch it again — here it is broken into four clips.

My television news superiors approached me about putting together a special report after the success of my book. At first I hesitated, because I didn’t want to simply air a rehashed set of stories that already appear in print. But then I saw an opportunity to tell new stories; these are some of the stories that do not appear in the book, but likely would if the book were republished today.

On top of that, I was fortunate to have my colleagues jump into this project. We take a look at the land and the weather, breaking down the advantages growers have and the challenges they face. And we look at the political issues still facing the region, occasionally threatening to divide it. - Lenn Thompson, Editor-in-Chief, New York Cork Report
