Things are busy here in "the lakes" (as Louis would say), so while we're busy tending to things in the winery and vineyard, our wines have taken up the hobby of globetrotting.
Just last week, our Riesling and Pinot Noir were seated among some BIG names in the wine biz for a professional tasting of American wines in Romania. It is an honor and a privilege to wield the flag of the Finger Lakes abroad, and introduce the region and wines to connoisseurs overseas.
Shanghai was the next stop for our Riesling. Liz Thach, MW (Master of Wine) presented our Riesling Classique to 34 Chinese wine professionals during a tasting of "8 Top American Wines." Forge Cellars wines poured alongside Kistler, Domaine Serene, Turley, and Opus One!?
Did you catch our Facebook post last week about Hungary? Our Riesling Classique is the only American wine on the list at Eleven - bor&tapas, a wine bar/restaurant in Pécs.
Wow. What a strange yet amazing feeling to see our project making a splash and navigating the vast world of wine.
