Review by Library Journal (2011-02-18)

Dawson (managing editor, New York Cork Report) collects mini biographies of some of the players in the up-and-coming Finger Lakes wine region in New York State. The cool climate is the perfect environment for growing Riesling and thus it has attracted many winemakers and tourists to the vicinity. Though the 12 individuals Dawson profiles have similar goals, no two are the same. Their backgrounds and philosophies vary, from the graduate with a viticulturist degree to a winemaker who learned by reading every book in the library to the grower who is in tune with his land. While each character alone may be appealing, together they represent an amazing array of experiences.

Verdict: Like the concerted effort of the three Tierce "brothers" who together create wonderful wine, Dawson stitches together diverse portraits to compose a useful travel guide, lessons in Wine 101, and, most important, a reminder of what makes wine so alluring. A fast, engaging read for wine lovers, especially those planning to visit the Finger Lakes region.
