New York State Wine Market
Finger Lakes Wine Country, NY (Vocus) November 10, 2010
Just in time for the holiday season, New Yorkers will be able to sample and purchase wines from 30 New York wineries, including eleven Finger Lakes producers, at the “New York State Wine Market” at New Amsterdam Market in New York City on Sunday, December 5 from 11:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.. This special wine market has been coordinated by the New York Wine and Grape Foundation in cooperation with the New Amsterdam Market in Lower Manhattan.
Attending Finger Lakes wineries include Buttonwood Grove Winery, Chateau LaFayette Reneau, Damiani Wine Cellars, Eagle Crest Vineyards, Fox Run Vineyards, Heron Hill Winery, Imagine Moore Winery, Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars, Ravines, Sheldrake Point Vineyard, and Wagner Vineyards.
Formerly the Fulton Fish Market near the South Street Seaport on the East River, the New Amsterdam Market is held outdoors but is sheltered by the FDR Drive. Its festive atmosphere uniting farmers with consumers attracts thousands of eager shoppers every Sunday, with special themed markets--like "New York State Wine Market"--bringing even more.
Scott Osborn, owner of Fox Run Vineyards on Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes, says “it’s a wonderful opportunity to present our wines to New Yorkers through the Greenmarket program, especially at the holidays.”
Kitty Oliver, Marketing & PR Director for Heron Hill Winery on Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes, says “"As the holiday season is approaching, shopping locally is an important theme and giving the gift of wine is always a great idea! Finger Lakes Wine Country is in NYC's back yard and we're proud to present our wines at the New Amsterdam Market this holiday season."
