‘NY Wine Month’ targets the Capital Region

25 Apr

ALBANY, NY — It has long been a thorn in the side of the New York State wine industry that beyond areas of winery concentration more restaurants and wine merchants don’t offer much selection of state-produced wines.

That is behind the month-long promotion that makes May “New York Wine Month” in the Capital Region. Numerous restaurants and wine merchants are joining forces with 46 New York winemakers to feature their products — to varying degrees at each establishment — throughout the month.

Says Jim Trezise, president of the sponsoring New York Wine & Grape Foundation, “We’ve been planning this promotion for months in conjunction with wineries, wholesalers, retailers, and restaurants to showcase the homegrown wines that, quite frankly, have traditionally been under represented in our state capital.

“It’s time for Albany to discover the industry that contributes more than $3.76 billion annually to the state economy. When you buy New York, you build New York.”
