VEDA 2017 Day 18: Trip To Wine and Cheese Country / New York
The Finger Lakes are a group of eleven long, narrow, roughly east-west lakes in a region called the finger lakes region in Central New York in the United States. This region is defined as a bioregion. They are a popular tourist destination.
The lakes’ shapes reminded early map-makers of human fingers, and the name stuck. Cayuga (435 feet, 133 m) and Seneca (618 feet, 188 m) are among the deepest in the United States, with their bottoms well below sea level. The two longest are close to 40 miles long (64 km) from end to end, and never more than 3.5 miles (5.6 km) wide. Cayuga (38.1 miles) is the longest, and Seneca 66.9 square miles (173 km2) the largest in total area. For more info, visit this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finger_Lakes

hi I’m Michael and I’m Deb and we welcome you to cottage views bed and breakfast cottage views is a bed-and-breakfast located in the heart of New York finger lakes wine country with over 30 wineries and breweries at our fingertips our breakfasts are hearty and nobody has ever left hungry we have our eggs delivered fresh from free-range hens next door and we source our produce from many many farm stands from the surrounding area I think our goal was to create a place that was low key and inviting for people to just come and go and enjoy this beauty of the Finger Lakes the wine nature we hope that the people that stay here love it as much as we do that’s why we moved here let’s take a look at the rooms we have three to choose from the writers den is a two bedroom suite two small bedrooms that are connected by a bathroom each room is named after our favorite authors Emily Bronte and Shakespeare one room obviously is a little bit more feminine than the other they’re both comfortable although it’s one of our smaller rooms it’s actually one of our most popular rooms because it has a private entrance and exit and also it has a deck that overlooks the lake the Renaissance room is a more luxurious room has a queen sized bed it has a private full bath with the tub it has a personal refrigerator in the closet very romantic very soft very soothing atmosphere we also capture that with the bathroom and the colors that we chose you know when you walk into the room I i think it’s it’s just a really beautiful feel it is right in the center the heart of the home the London room also has a private entrance and exit to the house this has a king-size bed and a personal refrigerator and it’s the only room that’s equipped with sound equipment so that you can watch movies and listen to music in the room cottage views is a TV free zone but we do have Wi-Fi throughout the house and the room was tastefully done in honor of john lennon he was Michaels childhood hero built in eighteen hundred cottage Jews was originally a stop off point for cattle drivers and it has always been an inn of some kind the last 30 years or so it’s been known as Maxim’s bed and breakfasts and it was here in 1994 when studying to be a sommelier that I stayed and walked every morning to Wagner vineyards right next door i sat on this very deck just dreaming one day of owning a bed-and-breakfast in wine country a few years ago Deb and I were driving by and it was a for sale sign on this house we talked about it and we said let’s make it happen Michael and I we have the same vision we would just sit and talk about how we wanted the rooms to look and so you know every room is a reflection of both of us and our love of this area and just what we wanted to bring for our home and also to the guests that will be visiting us for years to come we hope we love hearing our guests say it was just like staying at a friend’s house I’ve been in the restaurant business all my life and now I’m back in the kitchen doing breakfast I’ve come full circle we are living our dream..
hi there Simon froze own words at the dot-com ah maybe this is the first floor drinking outside the box today I’ve got six wines from New York State maybe I’ve done one or two I’m not even sure whether I’ve done that before let never had six I’ve got six Rieslings to from North Fork Long Island I think they’re both from North Fork but Long Island and four from the Finger Lakes falling into the dry to Jeru medium to dry to medium end of everything and even the dry ones have got a little bit of sugar in there but I think the idea is because they’ve got quite a bit of fresh grippy acidity are you won’t you don’t notice the sweetness so much or do you twist is digging and find out I told them in vintage order and then within vintage by alcohol so first one I’ve got is palma knock from North Fork and it’s 2010 and riesling weighing in at eleven percent alcohol clean sup Eli nice style got a whiff of firm of soft dioxide and just only just pulled the pull the tin lid off so but I think that that’s going to dissipate with time feels like he’s gonna be able to quite fine boned a little wine underneath not huge complexity but smells like it’s gonna be low light refreshing and some of that grittiness that makes you think I would like a bit of seafood then when you come to try there’s this like as someone’s of those if someone’s got a dusting of icing sugar on there not that it comes across the sweet but it’s just adding that little dusting is so your dusty icing too I can’t think of another way of putting it reminds me of firm of some new zealand styles if i have a problem with it I’d almost like it to be more on that dryer style I know dad some of them eat some of these actually so on the back how much residual sugars in here I would have been tempted to do the fermentation a little bit further get a little bit more acidic grip in there and yeah because he’s got he’s got enough around us and sweetness of fruit in there there’s little bit of maybe a bit of very ripe Apple but it’s the right citrus as the main fruity event yeah good but um great but tasty next one and this I think this is one of the pioneers of the Finger Lakes Herman or Wiemer Riesling reserve a drive from the Finger Lakes established 1979 so first one was it eleven percent alcohol this one weighs in at twelve point eight percent so why don’t eat all the bottle so it must be better but let’s see whether it’s a taller broader shouldered wine well the first one was New Zealand in a model this feels more on that may be trying out Al’s our style feels like you’ve got quite a bit of weight behind it but peach eNOS to the citrus fruit here but also this a little bit of minerality coming through smells like it’s going to be a more concentrated full of bodied wine but maybe a little bit drier we’ll see you get the zest the rounded apple and peach and maybe even a little bit of pear in there and something a slightly more exotic maybe some guava and then this mineral note comes through as with the first one I think that maybe there’s a case to be made for making it even a little bit drier but i know that some pallets don’t like drew them quite like riesling where you can almost feel your buttons clench of it this one there is some fresh grip eNOS but I almost like a little bit more but certainly a step up on on the permanent and I like that stretch i like that mineral edge it feels like feels like there’s more of that wine still to come out I mean I’ve only just opened it I wouldn’t be surprised in an hour or so it’s singing a little bit even more sweetly um ok on to 2009 vintage now with The Grapes of Wrath are oth apparently the producers called a room on or off and so this is so we’re back in Long Island here and two thousand and nine eleven percent alcohol let’s give it a whirl I candied as in not candid camera a candied peel and candied orange zestiness there’s this broad almost a toasty character there may be a bit of raisins in there and lemon jelly I’m just wondering whether there’s a little bit of fruit that’s gone on to the what they called soo much early days and late harvest fruit in that adding roundness and plumpness and it feels like it’s going to be a sweeter style but let’s have a see actually we score what I call the sweet-and-sour attention so I think it is a little bit sweeter than maybe the Pullman all but it’s richer with it and it feels like that be it feels like those there’s more waiting the fruit in the first place but it feels like he’s still got quite a lot of acidity to keep it tense what am I saying I get this rhubarb I get this juiciness and there’s there’s a floral blossom type character in there I was worried when I smell that lemon jelek so that makes me think often that the wines are going to be a bit simple but it’s not a simple style yes it’s it does feel like it’s got this richness tempered by this backbone of spine of acidity of minerality classy wine probably my favorite so far
