A Novel Trade Event in the Finger Lakes: FLXcursion!

A “moveable feast” event organized by serious winegrowers in New York’s Finger Lakes will make its debut 21-23 July 2019 in and around Geneva, NY. The theme for this first edition is Riesling, reflecting not only that Riesling is the most planted vinifera variety in this region, but that Riesling Rendezvous, which would normally have occurred in this same time window, has been postponed until 2020. John Haeger is the moderator for FLXcursion’s seminar on 22 July, variously known as Limestone Road and Limestone Lane, designed to explore if and how limestone terroirs affect Riesling. Fellow panelists are Morton Hallgren of Ravines and Mathias Mueller of Weingut Wittmann, domiciled at Westhofen, in Rheinhessen’s Wonnegau, where Riesling is produced from four adjacent sites with varying intensities of limestone in and under their topsoils.  See https://flxcursion.com/wp/limestone-lane/ for additional information.  Join us if you can!  Persons in the wine trade are the main target for FLXcursion, but the main tasting on Sunday night is open to consumers.  Fees apply.
