In this episode of Wine and Dime, I speak with Retired Marine Biologist, avid fisherman, and lover of wine, Doug Dixon. Doug has a PhD in Biology and we spend much of our conversation talking about how he has helped power plants maintain safe environments for wildlife. We also talk about his love for "Big, Bold, Red Wines" and we talk about a few of our favorite vineyards in the finger lakes region. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Doug as much as I did. Enjoy a glass of your favorite wine and enjoy the show!
The Wine, Wineries, and Food
Hosmer Winery is a fully functioning estate winery, everything from planting and growing the grapes, to picking, pressing and bottling is done on site. As a farm, we cultivate 70 acres of grapes with over 14 varieties and growing. Our belief in wine making and grape growing are parallel and continuing and we strive to maintain preservation of the land and the fruit form vine to table. Our passion for what we do is exemplified through the creation of our memorable wines.
The McGregor family invites you to enjoy a casual, seated tasting of estate wines produced from our half-century-old vineyards. Our winery is hidden on a hillside just one mile above the eastern shore of Keuka Lake.
The Elf in the Oak
Casual atmosphere with an outstanding view from the deck! This hidden gem is quite small, with only a few tables inside, and a few on the deck. Get a table on the deck for an outstanding view. The lunch selections were standard fare with a foodie twist...very tasty! There's an ice cream stand outside as well for those with a sweet tooth and if you have any room left after the big lunch.
