TasteCamp 2010 Visuals – Vineyard Walk

For the vineyard walk I was selected to go to Argetsinger Vineyards and tour the vineyard with owner and manger Sam Argetsinger. Sam was a riot, a really down to earth guy that loves playing in the dirt and working with mother nature. His passion for grape growing and nature was amazingly intense and fun to see. Below are some pictures from our visit with him.

Getting down with some Finger Lakes Gewürz’!

In a little more than three hours I will participating in another Twitter Taste Live event sponsored by Finger Lakes Wine Country and The New York Cork Report. This time the feature grape is Gewürztraminer, one of my favorites. I love examples from Washington State & Alsace, but have only had a handful of New York ones that I honestly don’t remember. Looking for the Finger Lakes to bring it tonight with some Gewürz goodness!  Thinking I’ll be pairing them with some cheese, either a Roquefort or the classic love of Gewürz, Mr. Muenster.

A few of my local tweeps will be joining me @dasjorge, @thegoodwineguru, @berylliumblonde & @voxinferior and hopefully a couple of others.

Here is the lineup of what we are tasting…
