Clinton to host wine tour Tuesday 10/15/02 (NYC and UPSTATE FREEPERS TO ARMS)
İFinger Lakes Times 2002 ^ | October 10, 2002 | By: GINA MUSCATO, Times Staff Writer

DUNDEE - New Yorkers getting acquainted with New Yorkers.

That's the purpose of a one-day tour of the Finger Lakes wine region, which will be hosted by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and the New York State Wine & Grape Foundation Tuesday.

The event is meant to spotlight New York state's world-class food and wine.

"We're very excited and appreciative that Senator Clinton has really taken New York agriculture on, including New York wine and grapes, as a cause," said Jim Trezise, president of the New York State Wine & Grape Foundation.

"She believes in the agriculture industry and in our wines and really thinks a connection needs to be made between New York City and upstate New York."

The tour will take participants to two Seneca Lake wineries - Glenora Wine Cellars in Dundee and Anthony Road Wine Co. in Penn Yan - which will set up showcases of food and wine from across the state.

Trezise said the day will start at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, where about 50 tour participants - including prominent restaurateurs, retailers, food critics and chefs - will gather to fly to Rochester.

Restaurateur Drew Nieporent, owner of The Myriad Restaurant Group that includes celebrated restaurants Montrachet, Nobu and Tribecca Grill, is expected to attend. Other participants include Peter Morrell, chairman of New York City's famed wine retailer Morrell & Co.; Michael Lamonico, award-winning chef at the newly opened Noche restaurant in Manhattan; and Ruth Reichl, editor-in-chief of Gourmet magazine.

The group will board a motor coach and proceed to Glenora Wine Cellars for a four-course luncheon of New York state cuisine, created by local executive chefs Art Kelly of Veraisons Restaurant at the Inn at Glenora Wine Cellars and Debra Whiting of Red Newt Bistro at Red Newt Cellars, Trezise said.

The first course will be paired with sparkling wines; the second, with light white wines; the third, with red wines; and the fourth, with dessert wines.

Tour participants will then go to Anthony Road Wine Co., where 16 wineries - including 14 from the Finger Lakes region - will have space to present their wines.

Participating local wineries include Hunt Country Vineyards, King Ferry Winery, Dr. Frank's Vinifera Wine Cellars, Glenora Wine Cellars and Anthony Road along with Clinton Vineyards of Hudson Valley and Palmer Vineyards of Long Island.

The group will then return to Rochester for a flight back to New York City.

Trezise said he hopes the trip will increase awareness of Finger Lakes regional wines in New York City.

"The Finger Lakes are just far enough away from New York City that it's truly inconvenient," Trezise said, adding that people from the New York City area are more familiar with wines from the Hudson Valley and Long Island regions, which are an hour or two away as opposed to the five or six hours to get to the Finger Lakes.

"People don't know we exist. By Tuesday's finish, we think they'll have a whole new opinion, and since they're the opinion leaders of the New York scene and therefore the world, we think this could be a major breakthrough for the Finger Lakes," Trezise said.

"We think this one-day trip will turn a lot of heads and hopefully bring people back."

Does anyone out there buy NY wine? If so, it might be a good time to stop.

I could be wrong but it seems a lot of new breed of vinters are transplanted downstaters, Californians and the like who, unfortunately, bring their politics with them.

Well now isn't this special?

I wonder can Ithaca Hours be spent with this bunch of high flouting elitists?

The Living Wage people around here have they been invited?

The Wine and Cheese crowd is the height of snobbery.

I hear that the Democrats are considering changing their moto from a donkey to a condom, because it stands for inflation, halts production, protects a bunch of d-heads, and gives a false sence of security while screwing others.

My inlaws had a cottage on Seneca Lake at Glenora. I spent many summers there boating, fishing and just goofing off. Our next door neighbor was part owner of Glenora Wines which was just up the road from the cottage.

Quick! Call ahead and tell them to put up "Trespassers will be Shot" signs. It may not be too late!

What's the difference between this 'article' and a Hillary Clinton campaign ad? How much would it cost to put together an ad this size and run it in a major paper? Doesn't the American press have special tax status and wouldn't their campaigning for specific candidates change that status? Inquiring minds want to know.

Shepard Niles loss is minor compared to the 250,000 new high paying high tech jobs the Senator will provide for the NY upstate region. Didn't you folks listen when she spoke during the campaign? Betcha ya can't wait to see them. In the mean time we'll just continue raising our flying pigs. You'll see them before those jobs arrive.

Thank the Lord I'm not going to Senaca this weekend. Last time I ran into Mr and Mrs Slickness, we were near some Womans Museum or some such thing. As for Glenora .... guess I won't stop there anymore... The stench lingers quite a while from those two....

Thanks to Governor Pataki, most home owners enjoy reduced school taxes via the Star Program. This year, as senior citizens, we will pay NO school taxes. Thank you Gov. Pataki! What has our Junior Senator done so far? Nothing. And now she's going to drink wine. Big deal.

New York State produces some very fine wines - they taste good and are quite enjoyable and are not horrifically expensive. The New York State wine producers don't need Hillary to promote them. They just need to advertise more. As a matter of fact, welcoming Hillary Clinton might turn off many upstate folks who enjoy wine and who never voted for her. Bad move.

Glenora Wine Cellars in Dundee and Anthony Road Wine Co. in Penn Yan

Both are west of Syracuse. Six hours and 285 miles for me. Wish I could be there, but that's a work day for me. I sure hope there will be some FReepers who will take up the challenge!

Will they be stopping in Hammondsport to thank Bully Hill for its tribute wine?

As a strange aside, I note that if you search for images of Hillary on the Google image search, the first shot that comes up is of her behind a podium at Cornell University, deep in the heart of The City of Evil.

This is simply a photo op and a free drunk for Hillary and her VIP pals. I would guess they will order a few cases and make big promises to showcase NY State wines.This is a political payback to the pocket of liberals who supported her for the Senate.Seneca Falls has the Womens Hall Of 'Shame' which welcomes Hillary every chance it gets.Penn Yan,Dundee,Hammondsport need a hell of a lot more than a few family run wineries who employ a handful of workers to prosper.Jobs like those lost at Shepard Niles,Morton Salt,Goulds Pumps,PY Boats,etc kept the area afloat.It's a beautiful area of NY,and one of the hardest hit economically,It deserves more than Hillary.
