Staff Pick Notes

It's time to stop ignoring New York State wines! Having failed to properly grow vitis vinifera in the earliest stages of American winemaking, east coast winemakers have been fighting relentlessly to gain back some well-deserved respect.

Enjoy this wine with shellfish, bouillabaisse, salty cheeses, or any lighter poultry dish.
