  • Wine Submission ProgramThe Finger Lakes Wine Alliance will submit wines to the following magazines throughout 2013 based on its own submission calendar: Food & Wine, Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, and Wine & Spirits. Wineries will receive a copy of the calendar and email notifications for upcoming submissions. All wine submissions will be dropped off or shipped to the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance office in Corning where it is then sorted and delivered to its respective magazines. Large group Finger Lakes wine submissions have been very successful in the past and are very effective in making a brand statement for the region. Finger Lakes Wine Alliance WebsiteAll levy contributors will be listed on the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance website as a levy contributor. The listing will include the name of winery, a link to the winery website, and winery contact information. Regional Marketing MaterialsAll levy contributors will receive an allotment of Finger Lakes Wine Alliance brochures which give facts about the region and those varietals which are standouts and Riesling centric promotional items to be used in marketing efforts that the winery sees fit.
  • Exclusive EventsThroughout the year the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance is contacted for a number of partner opportunities in which its member wineries could participate by having a table pouring wine. As a levy contributor, wineries will have full access to these exclusive event opportunities. Wineries would attend and pour their wines at exclusive events.   Wine Donation EventsThroughout the year the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance is contacted for wine donations at large events which will promote the region in which only one person is needed to represent the entire region. Levy contributors can donate up to six bottles of their current vintage of Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, and Lemberger which will be available for these types of events.  Virtual Tasting SeriesThe Finger Lakes Virtual Tasting Series consists of 4-5 media specific tasting events throughout the year which feature a specific varietal or style of wine. The virtual tasting will feature 6-8 wines (screening process) and host 8-10 qualified media representatives (screening process) from 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. streaming live from one central location over the Virtual Tasting Series channel on USTREAM and tweeted about using @flxwine and #FLXWineVT. There is no guarantee of media coverage. Each participating winery will receive a copy of the Twitter conversation thread for their files, notification of when article are published about the particular tasting and access to the video of the live tasting which can be shared via social media, email communications, and embedded in websites as educational pieces. Each tasting is divided into two flights with the wines being tasted dry to sweet. The tasting is lead by a moderator in order to keep the flow of the evening organized. Each winery is required to have one winery representative available to attend the tasting event whom is comfortable discussing the wine and answering basic questions about the region and winemaking. Each winery will have the opportunity to participate in one of the virtual tastings in the series by filling out a preference form which will indicate the interest they have in each tasting. The virtual tasting series will be advertised to consumers as an educational piece to learn more about a specific varietal or style of wine in the Finger Lakes.
  • Wine ExposOver the last few years we have seen a growing interest for the Finger Lakes in New York City and Boston markets; which in turn, has resulted in media coverage, wine sales and increased visitation to the region. The Finger Lakes Wine Alliance will have cooperative Riesling themed tables at the Boston Wine Expo, New York Wine Expo, and Wine Enthusiast Toast of the Town NYC event this year. Wineries can submit wine to be poured by the Program manager at one or all of these events. The region has made great head way with Riesling and will continue to build on the brand at these tables by educating customers, trade, and media with knowledge about Riesling included on takeaway postcards, how sweet are you stickers, IRF scale, and the region in general. At the Boston and New York Wine Expo’s, Thomas Pastuszak, Wine Director at The Nomad in New York City and our Finger Lakes Wine Ambassador, will host a seminar on the Finger Lakes Cool Climate Growing Region which will include a tasting of varietals that are being recognized as standouts in our region. The seminar opportunity is open to all levy contributors, wineries do not have to sign up as an individual table or at the FLWA cooperative table to be considered for the seminar. Thomas Pastuszak will make the final decision on what wines to feature in the presentation.Boston Wine Expo | February 16-17, 2013FLWA Cooperative Riesling Table (8 wines needed) $200.00 per wineCool Climate Seminar, Thomas Pastuszak (8 wines needed) $300.00 per wineNew York Wine Expo | March 1-3, 2013FLWA Cooperative Riesling Table (8 wines needed) $200.00 per wineCool Climate Seminar, Thomas Pastuszak (8 wines needed) $300.00 per wineWine Enthusiast Toast of the Town NYC | May 2013FLWA Table (Wines for table determined by score*, 8 wines needed) $375.00 per wine* Wine has to have been reviewed by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. * Wine must have a score of at least an 85. * Top 8 wines (scores of 85 or higher) will be chosen for the table, if there is a tie for top scores, we will take the wine that has the highest average of the past two vintages of the varietal being poured.

  • Wine Magazine Tasting Event SubsidiesFinger Lakes wines have been making quite a name for themselves through many written articles and high scores given in the Wine Spectator and Wine & Spirits magazines, especially over the last few years. Each magazine will be hosting tasting event(s) which are by invite only and feature top wineries from around the world. The Finger Lakes Wine Alliance feels it is very important, that if invited, that our levy contributor wineries attend and proudly represent themselves and the Finger Lakes in order to continue to build the brand name for the region, wineries, and its wines and therefore will offer a subsidy of______________ to help with the high expense of attending the event.Wine Spectator Grand Tour NYC, Las Vegas, & San Francisco | April –May 2013Invite Only from Wine Spectator magazineCost per invited winery is $5,000.00.
