Summary

New York's Finger Lakes is home to the country's fastest-growing wine region, and each year millions of tourists spill into the tasting rooms of its wineries. Filled with fun and likable characters, Summer in a Glass brings this burgeoning area to life and captures its exciting diversity--from its immigrant German winemakers to its young, technically trained connoisseurs, from classic Rieslings to up-and-coming Cabernet Francs.

Library Journal Review

Dawson (managing editor, New York Cork Report) collects minibiographies of some of the players in the up-and-coming Finger Lakes wine region in New York State. The cool climate is the perfect environment for growing Riesling and thus it has attracted many winemakers and tourists to the vicinity. Though the 12 individuals Dawson profiles have similar goals, no two are the same. Their backgrounds and philosophies vary, from the graduate with a viticulturist degree to a winemaker who learned by reading every book in the library to the grower who is in tune with his land. While each character alone may be appealing, together they represent an amazing array of experiences. Verdict Like the concerted effort of the three Tierce "brothers" who together create wonderful wine, Dawson stitches together diverse portraits to compose a useful travel guide, lessons in Wine 101, and, most important, a reminder of what makes wine so alluring. A fast, engaging read for wine lovers, especially those planning to visit the Finger Lakes region. [See also John C.
