• About the claim of being the oldest winery …

06 Dec

Back in August, I posted an item headlined “What is NYS’s oldest winery? Wrong!” and the debate on it continues right through today. The latest broadside is by a historic researcher from the region that claims New York’s first commercial winery.

The crux of the debate is Brotherhood Winery’s claim to be the oldest winery, whereas there is much evidence that although it is the oldest one still operating, it was not the state’s first.
