Lettie Teague, the distinguished wine columnist for the Wall Street Journal, is writing a three part series about the ascension of New York Wines.
Part 1 of the article, which came out on Sept. 29, focuses on New York City, but also teases what’s to come in the opening paragraph where Lettie writes,
"I’ve had terrific Rieslings from Hermann J. Wiemer and Ravines Wine Cellar in the Finger Lakes... I’m so convinced that New York wines are finally having their moment, I’m devoting a three-column series to the topic."
The article goes on to discuss the rising profile of New York Wines at New York restaurants, including many top restaurants that dedicate a lot of space for Finger Lakes wines on their wine list.
Erin Healy, beverage director of Manhattan’s Gramercy Tavern, told Lettie for the article, “I’m excited about the recent advancements in winemaking in the Finger Lakes.”
Stay tuned for a larger profile about Ravines in Part 3 of the upcoming series of articles in the Wall Street Journal by Lettie Teague.
