Very well written for a well deserving family!

Great piece, Evan!!! I just love these guys, and stopped in for another visit this past Sunday. I am as impressed with the wines as you are - and the standout for me was the dry Rose. I am already preparing for summer and stocking up. I was with a large group (25 ppl), and everyone agreed that the Freds Red was another big surprise. I think they have tapped in on a whole new terroir of Seneca Lake. They have a great future ahead. Fred Sr. would be SO SO proud!

Evan - wonderful story. My heart broke when I read of the fathers death. The dedication of the boys is inspiring. Thank you for sharing. There is a story behind every wine glass, uncovering for all to read can be a challenge.


Evan, thank you so much for sharing this. My heart goes out to the family, but it is wonderful they are able to honor their father's legacy.

Gail, Holly, Josh, Melanie,

Thanks for checking out the Zugibe story. Some stories essentially write themselves, and this is one. The brothers are so outgoing and hard-working that it's hard to imagine them finding anything but success.

Evan, I can't thank you enough for such an incredible write-up!

Zugibe Vineyards is a welcome addition to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. They show great promise and have one of the nicest tasting rooms in the region. Can not wait to see future vintages. They even carry CaryMo Chocolates.

I stopped at Zugibe Vineyards recently and enjoyed the wines. It is a beautiful setting for a winery. I am happy for the family and wish them all the very best.

Such a sad story and I can't imagine the mixed feelings going on when they were able to taste the first vintage. I hope they are able to find peace through working together at the winery, especially given their father knew the family business was set to be a success.

Very easy to become excited for this new FLX winery after reading your post Evan. Will be there in May for sure.
