EU guests sample NY wines for Thanksgiving

screen-shot-2016-11-26-at-11-21-07-amIf they weren't familiar with New York State wines before this week, the 40 ambassadors from around the globe who spent Thanksgiving Day at the U.S. Embassy in Brussels, Belgium, are now.

New York wines were the only wines accompanying a traditional American Thanksgiving meal hosted on Thursday by Anthony L. Gardner, U.S. ambassador to the European Union.

The wines included two from Brotherhood Winery (Hudson Valley) -- Sparkling Rosé and Cabernet Sauvignon -- as well as a Fox Run Vineyards (Seneca Lake) Riesling and Leonard Oakes Estate Winery (Lake Ontario) Ice Wine.

The reliance on New York wines was a result of the New Yorkm Wine & Grape Foundation's export program run by Susan Spence, and New York Wines S.a.r.l, a European wine importing company owned by Christian Claessens.
