I arrived at the festival on Saturday around 3p and dropped off the wine for Sunday. I then entered the twilight zone…Even after 3p, we found it difficult to get to the tasting tables. We visited our friends John and Stacy McGregor, and Dr Frank before it was time to go to the tweet-up arranged by Morgan McLaughlin.
The theme of the tweet-up was 2007 reds. We tasted a variety of wines from the Finger Lakes, Niagara Escarpment and Hudson Valley. I brought with me a Whitecliff Gamay Noir and Bashakill Blue Heron (Cabernet Franc.) Wines we tasted ranged from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noirs. They all were quite good.
Morgan had all of us take a picture together. Here I am holding the two bottles of Hudson Valley Wine with the Finger Lakes winemakers.
