RAGTCAG Answers on Page 2C Answers on Page 2C certain wine drinkers. This outraged Wiemer, who worked for Walter S. Taylor before being fired in a terse telegram on Christmas Eve in 1981. “These were not wine people,” Wiemer said by phone recently, describing the “accountants, lawyers and promoters” that in his view held grapes hostage in service of the watered- down sickly sweet beverage that passed for w ine in the late 1960s and early ’70s. “(My former employer) Taylor was a $500 million company,” Wiemer declared. “These people d idn’t even drink wine!” The Farm Winery Act cleared the way for vineyard visionaries such as Wiemer, and a younger generation of a rtisans to pull out the certain grape varieties and plant whatever they wished. Wiemer introduced cold-resistant German American g rape hybrids, and local wine lovers are now familiar with cool-climate, aromatic white vi- nefera varieties like Riesling or Gewürztra- m iner, as well as lighter- bodied reds such as Pinot noir, Cabernet Franc and Blaufränkisch (Lemberger). Returning winemak- ing to the vineyard also meant that wine producers were able to maintain consistency as they grew larger, and allowed winemakers to experiment with vari- etals that were less reliable but more interest- i ng. This, in turn, encouraged restaurateurs. Mic hael Turback, 22 and fresh out of Cornell, collaborated with Frontenac Point Vineyard, a peaceful and innovative place overlooking Cayuga Lake. As he explained by email: “(O)ne year we had the entire Turback’s staff come out … and participate in the harvest. They got to learn more about wine by getting their hands dirty. Jim (Doolittle) used t hose grapes — Seyval blanc, I think — to produce the restaurant’s house wine.” Carol Doolittle, Frontenac’s cofounder, explained the f arm winery approach: “People who were starting farm wineries were younger … and saw how wine went with food.” If Turback’s book is a t imely work that seems destined for timelessness, Thompson’s historical account feels especially relevant with the increased interna- t ional recognition of the region’s wine. As Thompson explained by email, “I did a lot of talking to the people who provided me with photographs. … Second- third- and fourth- generation winemakers are keepers of their family histories (and) they have a history not everyone gets to hear.” The result reads like an extended-family p hoto album: portraits of winemakers Walter S. Taylor from Bully H ill, John McGregor and Wiemer (who retired from his winery in 2007) sit among politicians, promoters and other supporters; contemporary wineries include Wagner, Hazlitt, and Swedish Hill. (Frontenac Point’s Carol and Jim Doolittle make cameo appearances, as does a grinning Turback himself.) Many of the key players in this seismic shift w ill join Turback and Thompson, as well as the Doolittles, Wiemer, Merle and Bill Moffett, awinemaker turned wine promoter, for an e vent at Frontenac Point on Sunday. Though the event is not open to the public, many of the places profiled are. The month marks p eak harvest season for grapes, making it one of the best times of the year to explore wineries in our region. The vineyards have m ostly been blessed with fair weather the last few weeks. A vintner’s newsletter released by Cornell Cooperative Extensionwrote late last month, “So far, much of the picking has been done when growers and winemakers wanted to, not when they had to. That’s probably as good a criterion as any for what makes a “good year’ in the Fing er Lakes.” Undoubtedly, it also makes for an even better year for a t rip around the region.
