Peter Burford’s ‘Wines of the Finger Lakes’ Tells the Story of the Local Wine Industry

Published by December 1, 2016 12:38 pm Leave your thoughts

Peter Burford’s book ‘Wines of the Finger Lakes’ is a treasure trove of information about this major industry. It tells of the industry’s unlikely beginnings when an Episcopal clergyman took a charge in Hammondsport and was unable to find a source for sacramental wine.  We hear about the meaning of ‘terroir’ and why the terroir of the Finger Lakes is especially welcoming to viticulture, and how the industry survived Prohibition.
