Wine Review: This Traminette from the Finger Lakes was one of my favorite hybrid wines that I discovered at the Wine Bloggers conference. It opens with a fragrant and pleasant mild lychee bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty lychee and lime blend with hints of gentle yellow grapefruit. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine is a steal at $13 and would pair well with cashew chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Made from a new premium wine grape developed by Cornell University, our Traminette is very dry, with a distinctive spicy finish that is reminiscent of Gewurztraminer, (which is one of Traminette's parent varieties). The crisp fruit flavors and spicy finish make this wine a great accompaniment to many oriental dishes.

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
