The best wineries in New York have a long history. In fact, the oldest in the nation is known as the Brotherhood, which was built in 1839 in Washingtonville. While other states are staying almost non-existent on this wine issue, New York is currently in the midst of a huge boom.
Between 2000 and 2009, a total of 86 new places to taste wines have opened in the area. These special places in New York now total 200. That number includes large "wineries", but many of these, such as those in the Empire State, are small, although they do not stop offering their clients different tastings and routes specialized in the subject.
Today, New York has five wine regions, and nine wine regions. One of the visits that you should not miss is the Finger Lakes Wineries.
