NY Wine Region of the Year

New York state has been honored with the title of “Wine Region of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast magazine.
The publication cited the quality of wines, tremendous growth of the industry and greatly improved business climate. The award will be presented at the Wine Star Awards gala dinner on January 26 at the New York Public Library.
“From a Riesling in the Finger Lakes to a Sauvignon Blanc or Merlot on Long Island, New York produces some of the best wines in the world,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said in making the announcement. “We’ve worked extremely hard over the past four years to partner with all sectors of our craft beverage industry to roll back archaic regulations, raise awareness of our vineyards, and to be actual partners in the industry’s success.”
Adam Strum, publisher and editor of Wine Enthusiast, said the New York wine industry has made a remarkable comeback in the past 30 years in terms of quality wines, the number of wineries and economic impact.
