I just got back from a packed filled week in the Finger Lakes.  Here are some of the highlight of my week that began working at the New York Wine & Food Classic which is a wine competition of all of New York State wines.  When that concluded I moved from Watkins Glen to Corning for the Wine Bloggers Conference.


I had a week full of eating, drinking and learning lots.
