At the second New York State Wine, Beer, Spirits and Cider Summit last week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced he is dedicating $ 6 million to marketing the state's producers of wine and other adult beverages. Certainly it's worth raising a glass to the high quality of Finger Lakes Rieslings, but in truth these are challenging times in the wine world.

…character, for me, is one of the hallmarks of the world's greatest wines. I would put the dry Rieslings of Andre Laible in that class.

There is such a sense of serenity in Laible's wines. Most people think of Baden as hot and also that Pinot rules down here. There are tons of Grauburgunder, Spatburgunder and Weissburgunder planted in Baden. Some good, some not. Riesling is not considered anything of consequence in Baden as it was deemed too hot by the cognoscenti. …

…really have to taste the wine to see what's real. In the case of Trefethen's Rieslings, I've always liked them. They're dry (as the label says), and most of the time make for excellent drinking, at a fair price. I gave 91 points to the 2009, 87 to the 2010 and 89 to the 2012 (I didn't review the 2011—did they make one?). I'm also a huge fan of Trefethen's Cabernets, so for me, the argument that you can't grow Riesling and Cabernet in the same …

…U.S. before--from Europe, yes, but not from California. The really good Rieslings I tasted were not a big surprise; many wine critics think that New York is leading the way in the U.S. with this variety. Yet, I was astonished by some very good Gewürtztraminers; many compared favorably with to those made in Alto Adige, Italy. The few sparkling wines I tried were standouts, but I knew this has been a strong suit for many New York wineries.

Another discovery came in tasting …

We then moved to the two Rieslings from Gunderloch , with Johannes describing the winery's three vineyards sites situated above the Rhine river and the 120 year family history operating the winery. An interesting story is that the harvest help has traditionally come from Poland, and as that country has become wealthier, the Polish workers still arrive for harvest, now using their vacation time to pick grapes. The first Riesling was the "entry" level 2012 Estate Dry…

…The style of the wines is as big as Andreas' teddy bear-like personality. The Rieslings and Spatburgunders have incredible freshness, verve and depth. They are big, powerful and explosive wines that take no prisoners, which I find is typical Pfalz style; the Pfalz is not for wimps.

I am proud to be the first person in America to offer the 2013 Rings Steinacker Riesling for as little as $ 24.99 on a six pack. This is a silly value. This is the equivalent of Spatlese Trocken…

…bright, had a nice mineral quality about it, and had a wonderful zippy finish. Refreshing. I love dry Rieslings, and this one was excellent!

This wine is a celebration of four generations of Freds each with his own distinctive personality and together were an amazing sight to behold. The grapes that make this premium blend are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Lemberger. A lovely, medium-bodied red, with a nice bright ruby color, with pretty bright red fruit up front …

They might know how to make Bordeaux blends and Mosel Rieslings but for a tribe of international winemakers, 2014 will be all about Mudgee. In a rare moment during the peak vintage period, nine winemakers and cellar hands from six countries came together to discuss their Mudgee experience.

Lakes Wine Alliance . In addition to making some really nice Rieslings, which the region is well-known for, the Finger Lakes cool-climate produces a number of bright, well-balanced white and red wines that are well suited to a wide variety of occasions and foods. Sparkling wines are one style of wine that can match just about any situation and any dish you throw at them. Their high acidity and palate-cleaning bubbles make then one of the most versatile and food-friendly wines you'll …

…breadth and quality. Over 30 different wines ( Sparkling, red, white, rose and stickies) by the glass and a good selection of local, national and international. As an example there are 20 Rieslings - a trio from the South West, five from the Clare, three from Mosel and a Donhoff from Nahe.
