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 seeks to showcase the diversity of the region through its wines and winemakers. Please sign up for the forthcoming webinars using the links below.
