According to the Wine Press, the newsletter of the New York Wine and Grape Foundation, the Dallas Morning News International Wine Competition awarded Gold Medals to my favorite wine, the Dr. Frank 2005 Rkatsiteli.
Gold Medals were also awarded to Chateau Frank 2000 Blanc de Blanc, Lamoreaux Landing 2006 Chardonnay, Thousand Islands 2006 Vignoles, and Torry Ridge Blue Sapphire, along with 8 Silver and 11 Bronze medals for other New York wines.
The Thousand Islands Winery is New York's northernmost winery! It's worth a visit if you vacation in the beautiful Clayton. NY area. Find out more here: http://www.thousandislandswinery.com/
I got the chance to talk with Roxy from the Thousand Islands Winery last year. Learn more about winemaking on New York's NEWEST wine trail here:
Many thanks to Gary Wiltbank from Wiltbank Farm in Saugerties for sharing some great information on cooking with mushrooms with the Gourmet Meetup last Saturday at the Troy Farmers Market.
Wiltbank Farms Shiitake & Oyster mushrooms are grown in a controlled environment without chemicals, preservatives or manure. Mushrooms, especially Gary's Shiitake mushrooms, are well paired with a glass of Pinot Noir.
The Gourmet meetup's next meetup will focus on cooking and flavoring food with gourmet oils - Live near Albany, NY? Join the Meetup here: http://cooking.meetup.com/534/
