Taste cool-climate wines from around the world, try wine and food pairings and learn why wineries in New York’s Finger Lakes have gained international respect. Joshua Greene, editor and publisher of Wine & Spirits magazine, will be the keynote speaker at the second annual Wine Symposium of the Finger Lakes, which will be held June 13-14 in Geneva, New York.
Riesling has become the region’s signature wine, so the Symposium will kick off June 13 with a Grand Tasting of finalists from the Finger Lakes AVA Riesling Challenge. Winners of the Riesling Challenge, which took place April 4, will be presented trophies in five different categories. Rochester Chef, Dan Eaton of the YNN network’s “Cooking at Home” will present cooking demonstrations. The Grand Tasting will be held from 4-7pm at the new Visitor and Events Center on Geneva’s lakefront.
The event moves to Hobart and William Smith Colleges’ Scandling Center on June 14. Greene and other wine world experts will present programs that include a wine and food pairing seminar, three different cool-climate seminars and a five-course luncheon prepared by Finger Lakes chefs and paired with Finger Lakes wines. Finger Lakes wines are showcased in the context of the world’s key wine producing regions.
