Renowned Wine Growing Region Finger Lakes Featured in 'A Sense of Place: A Discovery of Finger Lakes Wine History and Villa Bellangelo Winery'
DUNDEE, N.Y., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Villa Bellangelo Winery is proud to announce the publication of the second edition of A Sense of Place: A Discovery of Finger Lakes Wine History and Villa Bellangelo Winery. A Sense of Place is a first-of-its-kind narrative history and biography for the Finger Lakes. The second expanded edition, set for release on February 1, 2014, will be available in print and e-book.
The buzz around the Finger Lakes continues to grow as vintners from around the world are discovering the secret that the Finger Lakes is the premiere cold climate wine growing region in the United States. With the addition of Paul Hobbs and Johannes Selbach, and their Riesling venture on Seneca Lake, the eyes of the world are turning toward the region and finding that the Finger Lakes is producing world-class authentic and expressive wines that are crisp in acidity, and rich in flavor.
In the midst of these exciting times in the Finger Lakes, Villa Bellangelo Winery is proud to announce the publication of the second edition of A Sense of Place: A Discovery of Finger Lakes Wine History and Villa Bellangelo Winery.
A Sense of Place details the exciting history of the early sparkling wine houses established in the 19th century, the growth of the region thanks to pioneers like Charles Fournier and Dr. Konstantin Frank, and the seminal political battles that ushered in the Farm Winery Act of 1976, and opened up the state for boutique wineries and fine wine production.
Author and co-owner of Villa Bellangelo, Christopher Missick states, "I set out to craft a narrative that shared the fascinating history of the Finger Lakes as a wine producing region. Few people realize that the Finger Lakes was a producer of world class wines as early as 1870."
A Sense of Place isn't just a history book though, it's a deeply personal conversation with its readers about the family, the growers, and the dreams that the Missick family has for wines made at Villa Bellangelo.
Finally, the book offers a simple introduction to wine tasting in a format that instructs the reader how to properly use the tasting journal included in the back of the text.
