BOUNDARY BREAKS

Finger Lakes

BOUNDARY BREAKS.png

In the cool climate of the Finger Lakes, the best place to grow grapes is close to the lake. And the deeper the lake, the better.

The Boundary Breaks vineyards are planted close to the shores of Seneca Lake, the deepest of the eleven Finger Lakes in Central New York. Even though winter temperatures can fall below zero, Seneca Lake rarely freezes over. 

The team grows cool-climate grape varieties including Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Cabernet Franc, and produce wines that express the full range styles that are possible from such classic grapes.

Today they vinify a number of different varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Riesling and Chardonnay.

Channing Daughters Winery

Long Island

CHANNING DAUGHTERS.png

With 28-acres of vines, a small winery and tasting room in Bridgehampton, Channing Daughters grow and create wines from over two dozen varieties. The six separate vineyards on the Bridgehampton farm were planted from 1982 to 2007.

The varieties planted in each block represent the development of Channing Daughters from Walter Channing’s first experiments to the team’s emerging interest in Italianate grape varieties to a fascination with complanted multi-variety blocks and wines to a reversal from single clone plantings of Chardonnay to the inter-planted 10 clone blocks of today, all in pursuit of complexity and deliciousness and reflection of our place.

Channing Daughters is proud to produce wines bearing all three Long Island AVAs - The North Fork of Long Island, The Hamptons, and Long Island.  The team believes in celebrating the place, vineyards and region from which they are lucky enough to produce wine.

DR KONSTANTIN FRANK WINERY

Finger Lakes

KONSTANTIN FRANK.png

Dr. Konstantin Frank first planted vines on the west side of Keuka Lake in 1958. He started experimenting with over 60 different varieties and produced his first vintage in 1962. Accustomed to freezing temperatures in Ukraine, Dr. Konstantin was the first to notice that it was the lack of proper rootstock rather than the cold climate that resulted in the failure to successfully cultivate vitis vinifera vines in this region. The estate itself is now in the fourth generation of the Frank family, and they boast some of the oldest vines in the region.

Since late 2016, Julia Hoyle has stepped into the role of winemaker at Hosmer Winery.
