Exploring the Wine Glass

The Other White Grape in the FLX AVA

August 30, 2021

It’s Monday! Let’s raise a glass to another week! It’s time to unscrew, uncork, or saber a bottle and let’s begin exploring the wine glass!

Today on the podcast I am sharing a recording from a virtual tasting that I attended hosted by the New York Wine and Grape Foundation. When we hear Finger Lakes wine, I think the majority of us immediately think of Riesling. And although the Finger Lakes makes quality Riesling, there is another white grape that does exceptionally well there. Chardonnay. In fact, it is the second most widely planted variety in the region. 

The tasting was moderated by Dan Belmont, American Wine Expert and holds a WSET L3 certification.

I was sent three sample Chardonnay’s from 

Ben Riccardi, Winemaker
Osmote Wine Co.

Jeremy Broshiers
Damiani Wine Cellars

Alex Rosanelli, Winemaker
Hounds Tree Wines

Alongside the Chardonnay, I received cheddar cheese from Cabot cheese. A compliment of different cheddar cheeses that will pair perfectly with the three Chardonnays.

Thank you to the New York Wine and Grape Foundation and Cabot Cheese for sponsoring this class and to the wineries, Osmote Wine Co, Damiani Wine Cellars and Hounds Tree Wines for allowing me to participate.  

Listen in as we hear about cool climate Chardonnay and how much the Finger Lakes has to offer.
