Crushing New York

Four Finger Lakes wineries on driving regional progress
🌐 Written by Maiah Johnson Dunn for newyorkwines.org 

When it comes to the Finger Lakes, Christopher Bates doesn’t mince words. “If we want to progress as a wine region, we need to stop growing good fruit and start growing phenomenal wine,” he said on a New York Wines panel earlier this year. Christopher is one of only 269 Master Sommeliers worldwide, and runs F.L.X. Hospitality with his wife, Isabel. The executive chef and winemaker’s portfolio of businesses includes six restaurants, a catering company, and Element Winery.

“We’ve had a very, very strong push and movement towards quality over the last 10 years,” he  notes. One that has resulted in a fresh take on winemaking and revitalized an interest in the cool climate region by new winemakers and international investors alike. Most recently, the pandemic’s impact put the ingenuity of producers on display as changes to service models and digital marketing allowed most to weather these difficult times. But Christopher thinks we need to capitalize on the momentum of change. “We have the option: do we want to do this the way that we’ve always done it and that’s fine? Or do we want to step up and be the best-in-class in the world at it?”

It seems new and established producers in the region are asking themselves this question. Despite a common goal towards higher quality, the steps towards growth vary by maker.

For Christopher it starts with the land and his new label, Colloquial Wines. Scheduled to launch this fall, “it’s going to be a tiny little project–all based on our 13 acres of vineyards that we’ve been nursing back to health,” he says with a smile. It’s a departure from Element, which works exclusively with local growers. With many phenomenal wines coming from some of the most challenging regions, Christopher encourages us to think broader. “There’s a ton of land here that has been deemed too rocky, or too steep, or too hard to work that has the potential to not grow good fruit, but to grow phenomenal wine. [There’s] so much that we haven’t discovered yet.”

Alternative Medicine

The term alternative medicine is used to describe medical treatments that are outside the mainstream Western medical procedures. It is sometimes called integrative or complementary medicine. The treatments included in this group are changing as Western medicine test and include them in overall plans and insurers are willing to cover their cost. Here are some of the more popular therapies available in the United States. Read more.

Blooming Cacti

It is almost time for holiday cactus plants to bloom again. Often you will hear someone say their Christmas cactus is blooming early again. It could be that what they are growing is actually a Thanksgiving cactus. These are two different varieties of the succulent. The most obvious difference is the “leaves”. A Thanksgiving cactus has pointed edges and the Christmas cactus has smoother, rounded edges. There is also an Easter cactus, but that is for another time. Read More.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumpling

If you are thinking about hosting a potluck, there are really no hard and fast rules, but there are some things that are important to share with your guests. Read More.
