In 1998, Gary and Rosemary Barletta purchased seven acres of land on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake. Descending to the west from the state route that runs along on the ridge overlooking the lake, the land was fertile, rich with shalestone and limestone bedrock, and exposed to moderating air currents from the lake. It was the perfect place to establish a vineyard, and the Barlettas immediately began to plant their vines and build the winery about which they had dreamed for years.

The Barlettas' story, as John C. Hartsock tells it, is a window onto the world of contemporary craft winemaking, from the harsh realities of business plans, vineyard pests, and brutal weather to the excitement of producing the first vintage, greeting enthusiastic visitors on a vineyard tour, and winning a gold medal from the American Wine Society for a Cabernet Franc. Above all, Seasons of a Finger Lakes Winery describes the connection forged among the vintner, the vine, and terroir. This ancient bond, when tended across the cycle of seasons, results in excellent wines and the satisfaction, on the part of the winemaker and the wine enthusiast, of tasting a perfect harvest in a single glass.

Today, Long Point Winery sits on seventy-two acres (eight of which are under cultivation with vinifera grapes) and produces sixteen varieties of wine, a number of which are estate wines made from grapes grown on their property. With interest in winemaking continuing to grow, the Barlettas' experience of making award-winning wines offers both practical advice for anyone running (or thinking of running) their own winery, whether in the Finger Lakes or elsewhere, as well as insights into the challenges and joys of pursuing a dream.

I love this region, its wines, people, beauty, etc. This book takes me back there nicely. Very well written.

Exceptional - both a fun and entertaining read, and a great learning experience. Hartsock weaves together the stories of the people involved with great information about the process of winemaking, and the lore of the Finger Lakes region. I appreciated the organization of the book into seasons (thus the title), which made for a unique organizer when reading this work. Excellent!

It was interesting to gain some insight into what effort it takes to produce the libations we all love. Having visited some of the wineries mentioned made you feel a little bit closer to the process and makes you want to return to visit the others you missed :-)

I live about 2 hours west of the major Finger Lakes, so enjoy
mostly the same seasons-----when we have a hot, dry summer, the
siver lining is thinking about the grapes that will be producing
fabulous red wines for our pleasure! I have also been learning to
enjoy the whites. So if there is a cool, wet summer, there will be
the lovely, dry whites to anticipate!
Living through a year on Cayuga was most informative and requires
me to appreciate all the steps that our vine and wine lovers live
through to create our own local nectars!
Thank you!

Seasons of a Finger Lakes Winery is an entertaining book about producing wines from concept to reality. It's no easy job, but this featured couple did it. They had the commitment and the patience to begin the risky process of making wine in our cooler Upstate NY area . Now I'm anxious to try the many varieties that are produced here, both white and red. Even European vines play a role in some of this wine production. Amazing.

This short book is full of anecdotes and lore of winemaking and the Finger Lakes region of NY. Written by a reporter, not a vintner, it seems to be very knowledgeable. Now we need to visit the Long Point Vineyard!
