Good post.

Short response: I agree with your point of view on this, but I can't help but think, that there is more to discuss on this subject.

I would leave a longer comment but I really ought to be on the road already. Hope to chat about this over the weekend.

Very well said, Evan. I like to think part of the fun in drinking wine from various places is understanding the impact the terroir and the winemaker can make. Heck, no two Finger Lakes rieslings taste alike - how can you expect them to taste like ones made half-a-world-away?

Wine is not McDonalds or Budweiser - uniformity is not the goal. I'd hope most wine lovers get that. As for the people who insist only Germans can make riesling or the French can make pinot noir... in a blind taste test I bet they couldn't tell the difference.

Well, I don't know Mosel. I only know Long Island.

I enter this weekend like a sponge. To dive into all wines and vineyards and wine makers and vineyard people with my full attention. I hope to learn and build relationships with all that I meet this weekend.

Thanks to Lenn and you, Evan for giving all of us the opportunity to experience all that this regions has to offer.

Nice article! It's always exciting to me when I start to notice similarities based on region, especially when they are less famous regions. I love Riesling across the board, and am always excited to get to know how it's expressed from different areas.
