Welcome to another edition of Producer Focus and a new winery from Finger Lakes, USA!
Less than a five-hour drive northwest from Manhattan lies New York’s Finger Lakes, a rural wine region that is yet to be fully recognised.
An expansive yet accessible gem, more than 140 wineries are spread throughout the American Viticultural Area (AVA). However, the majority are clustered around the stunning scenery of the Cayuga, Keuka and Seneca Lakes. While the region’s laser-focused Rieslings have propelled it onto the world stage, there’s much more to discover...

For three generations, Lamoreaux Landing has been growing grapes on the fertile soils along the east side of Seneca Lake.
Lamoreaux Landing is a New York winery with deep roots in the Finger Lakes, with a commitment to the long-term health of the land and the people who call the Finger Lakes home. To achieve this, they are dedicated to sound environmental management practices, which minimise the use of synthetic fungicides, pesticides, fertilisers, fuel, energy and waste.
Determined to protect the environment with advanced renewable energy, they completed the installation of our 90 kW solar array in 2016 to provide 100% of their electrical energy needs. Solar power on the estate offsets 120,000 pounds or 60 tons of CO2 annually.
They grow and manage over 119 acres of planted vineyards on the eastern hillsides of beautiful Seneca Lake. These holdings are separated into more than 20 different vineyard blocks and are intensely managed to yield only the finest lots of expressive and dynamic cool-climate varietals.
Riesling, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc make up most of these vineyards, but they also grow Gewürztraminer, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grüner Veltliner, and Muscat Ottonel.
SNAP THEM UP WHIST YOU CAN!
We are delighted to bring wines from the Finger Lakes region to Jersey for the first time.
All the wines show remarkable purity and are on the lower side of the alcohol scale, perfect for long lunches in the Sun!
