The highly anticipated launch of the 2011 Tierce Dry Riesling is here! The celebration will highlight three cool-climate vineyards, three winemakers and one remarkable wine. Tierce Dry Riesling represents a collaboration between Anthony Road Wine Company , Fox Run Vineyards and Red Newt Cellars – integrating not only the varying vineyard expressions of Seneca Lake, but also the individual philosophies of the winemakers.
Peter Bell (Fox Run), Johannes Reinhardt (Anthony Road) and David Whiting (Red Newt) have peered through the prism of cool-climate terroir to produce Tierce. Drawing from three distinct winegrowing subregions of Seneca Lake, this Riesling offers complexities and nuances that set it apart from all others – making it uniquely Finger Lakes.
Mingle with the "Tierce Brothers" and enjoy three unique tasting courses throughout the evening. Guests will be welcomed with the 2010 Tierce that was served at the Presidental Inaugural Luncheon in Washington D.C. in January. The Official Welcome will start at 7:15PM
with an interesting tasting of the separate 2011 Tierce Dry Riesling
varietal components. Only then will the 2011 Tierce be poured. The event
will have the 2011 Tierce available for purchase and time for the three
winemakers to autograph bottles.
Each tasting is being paired with a wonderful selection of passed hors d’oeuvres by Chef Samantha Buyskes. There will also be an "FLX Board" of local cheeses, charcuterie, and seasonal accompaniments as well as housemade cookies and coffee. The event emcee is Evan Dawson, author of Summer in a Glass: The Coming of Age of Winemaking in the Finger Lakes. Autographed copies of his book will be available for purchase.
Celebrate the release of two new Tierce wines: 2007
Tierce Red and 2008 Tierce Riesling. Enjoy Fox Run's rustic Barrel Room
while we indulge you with delicious food & wine pairings. We will
serve three Rieslings from each winery at 7PM, then present the TIERCE
RIESLING at 7:30PM with some wonderful hors d'oeuvres specially paired
by Chef Heather Tompkins. This is followed by a taste of reds from the
three wineries before the grand release of TIERCE RED, paired with
another selection of perfect bites.
This is a chance to mingle with the
