great post Lenn

Fine write-up, Lenn. Now how did I know you'd pick a Riesling? :)

Promise me, now, that you, Nena and Jax will take that hike next Sunday! And of course, you and I have plans to walk some California vineyards and redwoods real soon.

This WBW50 has been a truly terrific exercise.


I've met various folks on top of mountains in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, and have been offered a mysterious Italian white (which was excellent), a little Jack Daniels, and even some finely aged Scotch, all of which can certainly take the edge off after summiting a 4-5,000 foot mountain on a winter's day.

All I can say is Canadian hikers like to bring booze with them. I quiver at the thought of hauling any extra weight up with me...

Great write up of a wonderful New York wine!
I agree with Jason, I would never hike a heavy glass bottle up a mountain. I have been toying with the idea of tetra pak wine for hikes, though. And of course, Champagne will be on the mountain when I bag my 46th high peak.

What a small world! Our family has a cabin in West Fulton, just about 5 miles from Vroman's Nose

Wow dude, major disrespect on the Hudson Valley. Did you forget about us? HELLO, WE EXIST, AND MAKE DAM FINE WINE! stupid finger lakes middle of nowhere sheesh.

You know, you're right. But Nena asked for a riesling for this WBW and I've never had a HV riesling that matches up. Can you recommend any?

Keep an eye out for a three-way Hudson Valley Baco Noir tasting I'll be writing up soon!

There is tons of great hiking on Long Island, maybe not "mountain hiking" but there are woods, dunes, and other tremendous hikes, especially out toward Montauk.. in fact, you can almost go completely through the woods from Wolffer Estate in Sagaponack to Channing Daughters in Bridgehampton....
