"Perhaps you've heard that we make some fantastic wine here in the Finger Lakes. While our Rieslings, Cabernet Francs, and Pinot Noirs, consistently take home medals, wine isn't all we do with grapes. The native varietals like sweet Concord and Catawba make a mean pie. This local specialty is sweet and jammy, baked into a perfectly flaky crust -- and available at many cafés, bakeries, roadside stops, and restaurants in the region. Enjoy it with a pour of one of the region's delightful dessert wines."
