Wine cellar contents

No, I don't actually have a "wine cellar". It's just our cellar or basement with a wine rack full of wine. The temperature stays pretty constant on the cool side, so it's a good place for the wine. Just thought you might like to know what is currently in the rack. I'll put up a picture of it later. In no particular order: Wagner 2003 Semi Dry Riesling, Keuka Overlook 2002 Chardonnay, Ravines 2003 Chardonnay, Rooster Hill 2004 Chardonnay, Seneca Shore Chardonnay (one of the smoothest drinking Chardonnays I've ever tasted), Great Western Autumn Frost (Strawberry White Zinfandel) & Peach Chardonnay, Torrey Ridge 2002 Delaware, Wagner 2002 White Springs Harvester, Americana White, Rasta Ranch Uncle Homers Red, Hazlitt Red Cat, Barrington Cellars Vidal Blanc & Diamond (just drank that last night & will have my review up shortly), Swedish Hill Radical Raspberry & Just Peachy (review also forthcoming), Bully Hill Pink Catawba, Glenora Blueberry Breeze, Pleasant Valley Sauterne & Spumante, Hickory Hollow 2002 Chardonnay, Bellweather Original Hard Cider, 4 Chimneys Honeydew Moon, Arcadian Simple Pleasures Black Raspberry & a couple cases of my own Peach Chardonnay that I made about 3 months ago. I've been making wine for a few years now (mostly from wine kits)and the Peach Chardonnay is one of my favorites, especially for the Holiday season. Please feel free to comment and offer suggestions to me about the blog. I am totally new to this, so I am learning as I go. I will be putting up my favorite wine links and some wine and winery reviews in the coming weeks. It's the Weekend and I'm drinkin wine!!!!!!!

You know...this gives me an idea for a meme--take a photo of your wine collection and write about the three wines you want to drink the most but are saving and why. What do you think?

I can't believe I've just discovered your site! Always great to discover another NY wine lover!

Ever tried any Long Island vino?

Lenn said...

Jennifer...I think that could make for a fun meme.

I have to give Lenn credit for pointing me to your blog. As a native New Yorker (Western) I am interested in the vines of my home state. Although all of my Finger Lakes tastings have taken place at Vintage New York in the city, I do say I am a fan of the region. Two stand out so far and are regulars in my cellar. Wagner reserve Pinot Noir and Lameroux Landing Cab Franc. Cheers!

Thanks Bryan for your comment. You must plan a trip to the Finger Lakes and visit the wineries. The wineries of the Finger Lakes are some of the most beautiful architecturally and scenically that you will ever see and the scenery with the backdrop of the lakes is just amazing. And both Wagner and Lamoreaux Landing have beautiful tasting rooms with awesome views of Seneca Lake.

Hi, I'm very much into wine, particularly south african white wine. I would like to know where to meet similar people. I've joined this site (south african white wine) and would like to know of other such sites.
Thanks
