Wine. Food. Who Could Ask for Anything More?

Featuring

Eric Asimov,

New York Times Wine Critic and author of How to Love Wine: A Memoir and Manifesto

Details

MODERATOR: Evan Dawson (WXXI Radio, Connections)

In a discussion with WXXI Radio Connections host Evan Dawson, Eric Asimov will explore the Finger Lakes wine boom and its role in the regional economy. ?One of the things I love most about the Finger Lakes wine community is that it is not an ego-driven effort to achieve great wines, or rather, to achieve all the recognition and financial gains that come from being regarded as a center for great wines,? he said. ?I believe producers are instead trying to make the best wines they can from their patches of earth, and from that eventually will come great recognition. It's a very different approach from some other American regions, and an important difference.?
