Keuka Spring Vineyards Wine Dinner, Thursday, August 29th, 8pm
Join Keuka Springs Vineyards and Chef Charlie Marshall for a perfectly paired presentation of six of Winemaker August Deimel's best wines. Chef Charlie works to create a unique dish for each course that accentuates the best qualities of each wine.
Keuka Spring's vineyards are in an excellent location for growing and ripenening wine grapes. Sloping towards Keuka Lake on the east side of the east branch, with nutrient-rich Honeoye silt loam soil, the vines receive plenty of afternoon sun, an extended ripening season, and are protected from early frosts in the fall and late frosts in the spring by the slope of the hill and its proximity to Keuka Lake.
Keuka Spring Vineyards has received numerous awards for quality, consistent with the Wiltbergers' commitment to producing world-class wines. In 1998, Keuka Spring Cabernet Franc earned the prestigious Governor's Cup, signifying the best single wine in New York State for that year. The Governor's Cup was again awarded to Keuka Spring Vineyards for their 2012 Riesling and yet again for their 2017 Gewurztraminer, making them one of the few wineries ever to have been awarded the Governor's Cup three times in New York State. In 2016, Keuka Spring Vineyards was named "Winery of the Year" by the New York Wine & Food Classic Wine Competition. Their 2008 Gewurztraminer and 2011 Riesling each took the "Best White Wine" Sweepstakes in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, a judging of 5000 American wines.
Other accolades include "Best in Class" awards for various wines, double gold and gold medals, and several Rieslings as Governor's Cup finalists. Nearly every Keuka Spring wine entered in competition has won at least one medal per vintage. The winery was declared a "Value Brand of the Year" by Wine & Spirits Magazine, and their wines have earned "Best Buy" and 90+ point ratings in Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits Magazines.
