Have you ever found yourself reading about a magnificent Long Island merlot or a racy Finger Lakes riesling and thought to yourself "Man, I wish I could get my hands on that wine, but I can't get New York wines here in (insert your home town/city/state here)."?
Every month, I'll hand select two bottles of New York wine and Greene Grape will send them to you if you're members of the New York Cork Club. Monthly wine costs will be around $40-$60 plus shipping. There is also a quarterly shipping option.
This is truly unlike any other New York wine club. Instead of a wine shop picking the wines that they make the most money one, Greene Grape has given me full control over the wines every month. You'll also get to taste wines from all over New York State, not just a single winery or region. And, I plan to work directly with some of New York State's top wineries to offer club members exclusive wines before they are even released.
And, because I'm not making any money on the sale of the wines, you can trust that I'm picking wines that I think you'll enjoy -- because I enjoy them myself.
Join today and get our first shipment -- Hermann J. Wiemer 2005 Dry Riesling and Shinn Estate Vineyards NV "Red" two awesome, food-friendly wines, for just $35 (plus shipping).
My Tasting Notes:
Hermann J. Wiemer 2005 Dry Riesling one the Governor's Cup for Best New York State Wine at the 2006 New York Food and wine Classic and is sold out at the winery. Luckily Greene Grape has some left. It has a citrusy, lime-driven nose and crisp apple, pear and citrus flavors. Balanced with fresh acidity, the finish is longer than you might expect.
Shinn Estate Vineyards NV Red. This is a blend of 75% merlot and 25% cabernet sauvignon, and it was clearly made for your dining room table. Light-to-medium bodied, this wine has some pinot noir-like qualities with a nose is mainly raspberry and strawberries, with just the most subtle hints of spice. The palate is juicy red berries with hints of oak character. The first 20 customers to sign up for the New York Cork Club get a bottle signed by David Page and Barbara Shinn, the couple behind Shinn Estate and Home Restaurant.
Unfortunately, Greene Grape cannot ship wine to IN, KT, MD, NH, PA, TN and UT at this time. Every other state is fair game, however.
