Dr. Frank's is now under the direction of his grandson, Fred, who is doing a great job. We have bought home a case of Dr. Frank's riesling every time we go up to the Finger Lakes. We think his Salmon Run lable is the very best buy in Finger Lakes Riesling there is. He always makes a superior Gevurtz.
A couple of years ago a small winery, Red Newt, won best NY State Riesling, and every year it is someone different - the competition is fierce and making every producer up there make better and better stuff. Although, some, like Bully Hill are still making junk and getting rich doing it. We loved Walter Taylor for his ongoing fight against Coca Cola and his good humor as displayed on his labels. BTW, if you like the labels, but not the wine, they sell packages of labels in their gift shop. and postcards with labels on one side that i like to send to friends.
We have found some fine dining in the Finger Lakes, but have found little in the way of Roadfood except in Ithaca. We'll give Mr. Chicken a try next month. Does anyone have any other suggestions along that line-
We'd like to find some "Cornell chicken" if any is available around the Lakes.
Hode: It has always puzzled me as to why it is impossible to get a lake trout dinner anyplace up there. The lakes are famous as a lake trout fishery , so why can't I buy a trout dinner?
