One of the best parts about living in the Finger Lakes Region is the excuse to try all the amazing local wines! Here are some of my top picks:
Heron Hill Eclipse Red
If you live here in the Finger Lakes and haven’t tried Heron Hill’s signature Bourdeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, it is an absolute must! Heron Hill’s Eclipse Red is my favorite summertime red to share with family and friends because it always proves to be a fan favorite. This smooth, dry blend seems to satisfy all preferences and won’t break the bank! It is perfect for some light hors d’oeuvres with friends or a summer steak salad.
Boundary Breaks Dry Rosé
This is the perfect rosé for happy hour! It is fruity with a crisp finish, making it a refreshing choice to relax and unwind. Come Wednesday, I find myself breaking out a bottle of this dry rosé as the perfect mid-week treat to indulge and dream of the weekend.
Dr. Frank Chardonnay
While everyone knows about Dr. Frank’s Riesling, Dr. Frank’s Chardonnay is also a must-try. It is a fruit forward chardonnay with a creamy finish that truly delights. As an almost strictly red wine lover, this is a white wine I thoroughly enjoy. I love pairing this chardonnay with Mahi-Mahi fish tacos or salmon salad.
