Hi Gingergirl.
I asked about the development of avenues for other wine regions recently and recieved a nice response....they are working on it, but the technicalities of doing so are making it a slow road. Maybe damambo's idea to start a thread like this in the meantime will work. Can't wait for the others to be ready, though!
One of our sons goes to school in PA and does some traipsing about in NY...I'll tell him abut these trails you've mentioned.

I am really surprised there is no New York wine trails here. They have three significant trails-Finger Lakes, Long Island and Hudson Valley. Hundreds of wineries and really good wines.

The Niagra I have had is very sweet and syrupy, like a late harvest Reisling. I have also seen the Niagra at the wineries in Northern Ohio, around Sandusky and Put-in-Bay.

We were in Pennsylvania a few years ago, traveling through Amish country and came upon a town by the name of Intercourse. "Nestled between Intercourse & Bird-in-Hand PA, the Intercourse Wine Gallery offers complimentary wine tasting daily, as well as knowledgeable hosts to help you choose the perfect wine!" Of course, we had to purchase a couple bottles of Intercourse white to give as gifts!

See what you can learn on this Board!

We have some wineries here in Arkansas too if you like Muscadine, Niagra, and White Zinfandel! :-)

You know they are missing several wine country areas throughout the nation....Washington and North Carolina are missing as well and these are both considered "up and coming" areas in the wine publications. Anyone know how to make a suggestion for expanding the boards??

so I'm just sticking this in the Napa Forum.

Our son and daughter-in-law took both families to lunch yesterday at Flat Creek Winery in the Texas Hill Country. They have a lovely setting well off the beaten path - we had beautiful clear blue skies and the temp was in the low 50's. Lunch was a delicious butternut squash soup, followed by a quail with cornbread, cranberry, chestnut stuffing served over risotto and julienned zucchini and carrots and duck giblet gravy. The soup was paired with their Pinot Grigio and the quail with their Syrah. Both were very nice. To me, Pinot Grigio (like a Sauv Blanc) are nice, light wines that are not easy to mess up - so I don't recall ever having one that made me grimace. Unlike reds - which can quickly make me pour it out or say More Please! Anyway, the Syrah was a nice dry wine, with hints of dark berries - they describe some raspberry, but I didn't get that. Dessert was an almond cheesecake served with their Sparkling Almond - that was fun and very tasty with the cheesecake. After lunch, we walked next door to the tasting room and had a very very leisurely tasting - it took two hours to get through the 6 wines we selected!! I didn't make it through the 6 - after an hour and a half, and 4 wines, I had to get up and move around - so I went outside and enjoyed the beautiful day and views... Yes, the tasting room was busy, and they must have been missing some staff, but that was beyond my patience limit.

If you ever find yourself in the Texas Hill Country, there is a Texas Hill Country Wine Trail - fun to explore and enjoy, and it is anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour between the wineries, so a little different than the Napa or Sonoma experience! Not as easy to find yourself overloaded with wine
