NEW YORK STATE OF WINE - WEBINAR SERIES
New York State of Wine is back with a whole new look. This second series spotlights New York’s prized grape varieties alongside examples from top-producing regions around the world.
Crafted in New York, but inspired from everywhere, New York is a unique community of passionate producers who approach winemaking with a multitude of personalities and backgrounds—they’re not alike, and they like it that way. Wine has been made in New York since the 17th century and its unique history of hybrid cultivars paired with an increasing amount of planted Vitis vinifera has positioned the region as one of the most diverse and resilient. In New York wines you’ll find subtlety, depth and nuance; it’s no surprise that they’ve found a place on the global stage, alongside other great wine regions of the world. These sessions will take a look at New York’s star varieties side by side with other great wine regions of the world, exploring the common threads as well as the varied approaches to viticulture and winemaking.

Previous Webinar Series - New York State of Wine
Diverse and bold, with a long history stretching back hundreds of years, New York is reinventing itself as an epicenter of dynamic winemaking.
The state is home to the first winery in the United States, and producers are drawing on that background to produce some of the most exciting wines in the country.
Wine has been made since the 17th century and since the 1950s a successful focus on quality has taken hold to the point that New York is gaining a well-deserved reputation as one of the world’s most transformative regions.
There is an incredible amount of diversity in climate and growing conditions: from Long Island, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean, to Hudson Valley, the historic heartland of New York wine, to Niagara and the Champlain Valley on the border with Canada, to Finger Lakes, which has established itself as a region that can compete with Germany, Austria, and the Loire Valley. Think cool climate, expect the unexpected.
Our New York State of Wine series of monthly webinars sought to showcase the diversity of the region through its wines and winemakers. You can rewatch these webinars on our YouTube channel by clicking on the links below...
