Wine Enthusiast is out with the latest scores for New York State wines. Hudson Chatham Winery received some terrific scores for several of their outstanding wines. New York State wines are often overlooked by most consumers either at wine shops or restaurants, which is unfortunate because wines from the Empire State can be quite good as evidenced by the WE scores. The Finger Lakes region has long been known for excellent wines like reisling and other colder climate varietals. Long Island has a tradition of wine making that dates back centuries. The Hudson Valley, long known for excellent farming (many of the top restaurants in New York City get their fresh produce delivered from farms just a few hours north), is becoming more and more well known for high quality wines. Each year/vintage gives the winemakers opportunities to hone their creations and each year more and more of these wineries are being recognized by wine critics and enthusiasts from all over the world.
If you haven’t had the chance to sample New York State wines there are several within a short drive from The Croff House that offer complimentary tastings. We’re convinced that once you try them you will, like us – and Wine Enthusiast – , agree they are quite delicious!
