The governor has announced the winners of the 33rd New York Wine Classic. This year the
Governor’s Cup was presented to Keuka Spring Vineyards of Penn Yan for their 2017 Gewürztraminer from the Finger Lakes region. The first ever Governor’s Cider Cup was awarded to Kite & String’s “Pioneer Pippin” cider. In addition, the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery from Pulteney was presented with the ‘Winery of the Year’ award. The Governor’s announcement of the Governor’s Cup coincides with a current USA Today poll that has the Finger Lakes leading as the best wine region in the country.
