im Trezise knows a winner when he sees one, and is passionate about Finger Lakes Riesling. “New York is home to the most diverse, high quality collection of Rieslings in the New World. Nowhere else even comes close,” says the regional advocate for the New York Grape and Wine Foundation. Basking in the long, cool summer days that high latitude affords, New York’s appellations also share proximity to broad, deep expanses of water which minimize winter kill. Even more uniquely, the Finger Lakes afford maritime advantages at high altitude.
