Nathan Kendall, who makes wines under his label Nathan K and at Hickory Hollow Winery, told me: ‘If I could only make one wine in the Finger Lakes, it would be sparkling.’

He added: ‘After all, the region was founded on sparkling wines [in the 19th century]. There is no disease pressure when you don’t have to hang for ripeness, and the climate is well-suited for that—with other wines, it’s a juggling act since the weather is consistently inconsistent.’
