There are not too many tastings around town featuring Finger Lakes
wines. I bet that the overwhelming majority of us have never gone to
such a tasting or even had a Finger Lakes wine (yes, I know you did

Note that most of the featured grapes are European varieties, so this
will give you a comparison reference.
