Would this be categorized as a Seneca Lake wine, for the grapes, or a North Fork wine, for where it is made, or simply a NY State wine?

the american viticultural area (AVA) on the label refers to the source of the grapes, at least 85% of the grapes used to make a wine must have been grown within the geographical location of the AVA. i could have labeled as seneca lake or finger lakes. in this case i decided to label influence riesling as new york state due to the fact the fruit was sourced from seneca lake and fermented on long island.

Congrats Erik, Great wine, I had it the other day! Its officially Riesling Season on the NoFo!

Great job Erik and congratulations on your new venture!

We just drank bottle # 4115 last night. Very nice indeed. Summer of Riesling is ON!

I am a huge secret riesling fan. Not for the sugar but for the acid balance (It makes me a better sparkling wine person). My three fav places on planet earth for riesling are 1) Moselle River, 2) Finger lakes, 3) Lake Michigan (naysayers, look for Hickory Hills, a German family estate that will put Michigan on the winemap, as the Gruet family did for New Mexico sparking)...
Congrats to Erik for sourcing a great region for grapes and bringing it to our backyard. I am very happy to have this exceptional riesling in our tasting room.

Erik, next year we introduce a second label... "BAD" INFLUENCE!!!
