It's a good time to think about what's happening in my own backyard: to wit, a local vinicultural flowering that is genuinely exciting, and that feels totally distinct from the wines of the West Coast.'America,' by the way, doesn't just mean the United States. There is an extremely inconvenient border separating the Canadians of the Niagara Escarpment from the USians of the Finger Lakes, but the energy, the angle of the sun, and the feel of the wines have a lot to say to one another — to say nothing of what's happening outside of New York State in places like Vermont.Whether it's vinifera, hybrids, or combination wine-and-cider, there is history and a sense of place here worth exploring that's unlike anywhere else in the world, whether this is your own back yard or a peek into someone else's.
