For many wine enthusiasts there is nothing more inviting that a glass of fine wine. Red or white? Vintage or non-vintage? What constitutes a great wine and more importantly where does one look for such answers? Recently we looked no further than upstate New York as Shaw Vineyard came to our attention most readily due to its long and impressive list of accolades*** that box out much of their competition when it comes to top notch regional wine.
Shaw Vineyard is dedicated to the production of vinifera wines in a dry, cool-climate style reminiscent of the great European producers. The winery grows most of its own grapes and sources the remainder from the highest-quality Finger Lakes growers. Winemaker Steve Shaw employs careful and in some cases unique methods in his production facility, resulting in wines that exhibit complexity and full flavors. Do make Shaw Vineyard a priority--discover the treasure.
****-the Finger Lakes possesses the soil and climate necessary to produce many of Europe’s great wine varieties, Steve Shaw continues to experiment with his vineyard and his production facility, improving the quality of both his white and red wines.
