Segment-1: Wine Regions - Two Finger Lakes Wineries Named Among Wine & Spirits Top Value Brands - Bob Madill
 
01: Two Finger Lakes wineries have been named top value brands for 2011 by Wine & Spirits magazine. Fox Run Vineyards and Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars were listed among the 55 international brands including 17 from the United States. Each year, Wine & Spirits magazine tastes thousands of wines blind. According to the magazine, “Out of the 3,000-some bottles we tasted blind over the past 12 months, these brands caught our attention, not just for one stellar value, but several.” The full list can be found in the June 2011 issue of Wine & Spirits magazine. Bob Madill is Chairman of the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance and General Manager at Sheldrake Point Vineyard on Cayuga Lake.
