Fox Run Tasting Room Recognized as Most Admired

Friday, December 9, 2016 The Fox Run Vineyards Tasting Room was selected by Vineyard & Winery Management magazine as one of the ‘20 Most Admired Wine Tasting Rooms and Experiences’ in the United States.

Vineyard and Winery Management Magazine asked industry professionals throughout the country to submit their favorite winery tasting rooms and experiences. “The wineries that made the 20 Most Admired list this year have each demonstrated a distinct brand of professionalism when it comes to inviting visitors to their property. They hail from all parts of the country and offer all types of wine, food, education, events and adventure. They’ve created personalized experiences that show off their unique attributes and interest in an honest and inviting manner – one that creates happy memories and great stories to share.”

The Fox Run tasting room is open year-round and offers a wide variety of tasteful experiences. There is truly something for everyone. Customers have the choice of three different tastings, one featuring their drier style of wines and the second a little sweeter. The Riesling flight showcases the many styles that this varietal can be, ranging from dry to sweet. Our knowledgeable tasting room staff also give a 45-minute walking tour through the vineyards and the winemaking facility. It is a great introduction to Fox Run but also to winemaking and grape growing in the Finger Lakes wine region.

In the summer, they combine food with their wines in a variety of events. The Food and Wine Experience is offered every Friday providing an in-depth look at Fox Run combining a more extensive tour of the vineyard followed by a food and wine paired lunch highlighting the abundance of local ingredients found nearby as well as produce from our own garden. Some of their evening events include Grapes, Griddles and Vittles, a mid-week casual dining experience with grilled cheese sandwiches and a salad, and Tasting Blocks, a unique winemaker and chef dinner focused on food and wine pairings. The highlight of the summer is the annual Glorious Garlic Festival held the first weekend in August each year.

“Our entire staff at Fox Run work really hard to create a welcoming and unique experience for every customer that comes through our doors. It is a true honor to be recognized for the experience people have in our tasting room because it is recognizing our entire staff and the job they do. We have a great team that really enjoys sharing the Fox Run story every day, ” says co-owner and president of Fox Run, Scott Osborn.

2014 Tierce Riesling Release Party Set for November 12th
Rochester Chamber President Bob Duffy to Serve as Event MC

Monday, October 24, 2016 Mark your calendars for the highly anticipated launch of the 2014 Tierce Dry Riesling. Held at Fox Run Vineyards on Saturday, November 12th, the celebration will highlight three cool-climate vineyards, three winemakers and one remarkable wine. Tierce Dry Riesling represents a unique collaboration between Anthony Road Wine Company, Fox Run Vineyards and Red Newt Wine Cellars – integrating not only the varying vineyard expressions of Seneca Lake, but also the individual philosophies of the participating winemakers.

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Robert Duffy will serve as the event MC. Guests will first have the opportunity to taste the three separate Riesling components followed by the unveiling of the 2014 Tierce Dry Riesling. The event is the first opportunity to purchase the 2014 Tierce Dry Riesling. Tickets are $45 per person and available online at http://bit.ly/tierce2014. Doors open at 7 pm. Light appetizers will be served during the event.

Peter Bell (Fox Run), Peter Becraft (Anthony Road) and Kelby Russell (Red Newt) have peered through the prism of cool-climate terroir to produce Tierce. Drawing from three distinct winegrowing sub regions of Seneca Lake, this Riesling offers complexities and nuances that set it apart from all others – making it uniquely Finger Lakes. Says Peter Bell, “It's a one-third each blend of lots from each winery. It's all done by a series of tastings where we do lots of trial blends, mostly based on hunches. Such as, what will this smoky-scented lot do to the wine in differing percentages? Ultimately we're looking for an austere style. We talk about minerality, electricity and tension. Can you quantify them? No, but we know what we're looking for.”

"The Tierce project has always been an expression of each vineyard and winery, but the spirit of collaboration that underpins it has always been its strength. Now that the project is in its second decade, we're seeing that the spirit and idea of an ultimate Finger Lakes Riesling has a legacy of its own beyond any one person or year," adds Kelby Russell.

“What makes the Tierce Riesling slightly different from year to year is simply the diversity of each growing season. Each year’s unique ‘finger print’ is being captured in every bottle. It is important to allow the vintage to show its true face of its growing season,” continues Peter Becraft.

Fox Run Adding to the Festivities at the Calgary Stampede

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 Fox Run Vineyards, located in the Finger Lakes region in Upstate New York, has been selected as the featured white wine for the Calgary Stampede Premium Venues this July. The Fox Run 2015 Doyle Family Unoaked Chardonnay was selected by the Calgary Stampede during a rigorous selection process, and will be poured in various hospitality locations such as Ranahans, The Lazy S, and Infield Suites during the 10-day event.

“We received a warm welcome into the Alberta market from the start. The opportunity to showcase our wine at the Calgary Stampede is a testament to the quality wines that Fox Run produces in smaller quantities,” says Fox Run owner Scott Osborn. “We know that there are large wine producers that we have to compete with on a daily basis and it is so satisfying when ‘David’ can overcome ‘Goliath’. It is a huge step in achieving global recognition for Fox Run and the Finger Lakes.”

The Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition, and festival held every July in Alberta, Canada. The 10-day event, which bills itself as ‘The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth’ attracts over one million visitors each year to Stampede Park which is comprised of 208 acres. The goal of Calgary Stampede (first held in 1912) is to preserve and promote western heritage and values. It is a treasured link to the history and celebration of rodeo and agriculture, featuring a vast array of arts, agricultural exhibits, and musical performances. Each day concludes with a rodeo competition followed by chuckwagon races. The Stampede spirit has become the international identity of the city, known as the ‘Stampede City”.

Fox Run Vineyards is distributed in the Alberta province by North by Northwest Wine Imports. This long-standing winery’s products have been available in this market for over two years now and are currently sold in boutique liquor stores and restaurants across the province. Additional Fox Run wines available in Alberta include a reserve-tier Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Lemberger, and various Rieslings.

“One of the goals of North by Northwest Wine Imports has been to promote the quality and style of New York wines, specifically from the Finger Lakes AVA,” says North by Northwest’s Jeremy Raaymaker. This is a tremendous leap forward for our already-strong partnership with Fox Run Vineyards. Having the opportunity for so many people from so many parts of the world to get the Fox Run Doyle Family Chardonnay in their glass goes a long way toward solidifying the reputation of Finger Lakes wine.”

“This is a great tribute to Fox Run Vineyards and all the people who made this happen, as well as great publicity for Finger Lakes and New York wines. We know that there are many superb wines of all types being made in the Finger Lakes, but having the Fox Run Doyle Chardonnay so prominently featured at an international event of this magnitude is enormously beneficial in spreading that reputation.” says Jim Trezise, President, New York Wine & Grape Foundation.

A Letter From Scott Osborn

Wednesday, February 3, 2016
Dear Friends of Fox Run,

It is rare that I ask our customers to become involved with issues surrounding this region or our company. Right now, there is a serious threat to Finger Lakes wine country by an out-of-state company to use unstable salt caverns as an LPG storage facility. Other issues have not threatened our livelihood as much as this proposed project. We are very proud of the region the Finger Lakes has become, the awards that we receive and the dream to continue to create wine for everyone to enjoy. I ask for your support in signing the online petition to help save Seneca Lake and the Finger Lakes wine region.

Crestwood, a Texas-based corporation, has purchased 1.2 miles of Seneca Lake shoreline in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country, with plans of turning the region into the "gas storage and transport hub of the Northeastern United States." This kind of industrialization would include huge open brine pits on the steep hillside of the lake, burning flare stacks, a rail siding, truck depot, industry lights, and compressor stations that would destroy the peaceful, bucolic region we all love so dearly, and severely damage the Finger Lakes Brand, which we have worked generations to build.

To learn more about the project, please go to:http://flxwbc.com/ or www.gasfreeseneca.com

We have been working for five years to fight this ill- conceived project, taking time away from what we do best: making wine. Since this threatens our livelihood and the fine wines we bring to you, we are bringing this to your attention to ask for your support.

If you love the Finger Lakes as much as we do, please:

1.) Sign our petition to NY's Governor Cuomo HERE.

AND

2.) Send Governor Cuomo an email by: Downloading this support letter and use it in the message of this online comment box at: http://www.governor.ny.gov/contact

OR

3.) Print the attached letter and send it snail mail to:
The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State
State Capitol
Albany, NY 12224


Thank you. Together, we can preserve the Finger Lakes for generations to come!

Sincerely,

Scott Osborn

Fox Run Vineyards Goes Solar

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 The largest solar power array at a New York winery is sprouting up on the west side of Seneca Lake. Fox Run Vineyards has begun installation of a 576 panel, 150 kiloWatt system, which is one of the largest solar energy projects to date in Ontario and Yates counties. The energy will be used to produce Fox Run's wine as well as power the facility's café, tasting room and administrative offices. The project will generate 100% of the power used at the 100-acre property.
Half of the panels will be installed next to Fox Run's production facility, while the other half will be installed at the Geneva Solar Farm on Carter Rd.
Fox Run welcomes the public to help celebrate with them at an installation party on Thursday, June 4th from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. Guests will be able to see how a solar array goes together and, even install a panel themselves. Representatives from QwikSolar will also be onsite to provide information on residential solar installations. Guests are asked to park in the tasting room lot and Fox Run staff members will guide you to the installation location.
“The installation of solar power is another step for Fox Run to become more sustainable,” says Fox Run Owner, Scott Osborn. “We are a family owned company and by reducing our carbon footprint, we are creating a cleaner environment for the next generation. This is just one avenue where we continue to look at new innovations that will reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.”
QwikSolar Power Systems is a Geneva, NY based company handling the installation of the system. Construction began on May 26th and will take about 5 weeks to complete. When complete the array will produce enough energy to power 23 homes, 1500 light bulbs and, most importantly, produce 15,000 cases of wine in a year.
Lyons National Bank is funding the project. “LNB is proud to partner with Fox Run Vineyards on this green energy initiative,” said Ryan Hallings, VP, Commercial and Agricultural Loan Officer. “As a local bank we are pleased to provide funding for this innovative investment in our community.”
Fox Run is participating in The NY-Sun Initiative and is receiving a grant for a portion of the project as part of an effort to promote a more stable and cleaner electrical grid.

Below are the nominees in each of the categories for 2014, as well as the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Winner.

Wine Region of the Year: New York State
Home to world-class international and native varieties, top-rated culinary experiences and diverse tourism opportunities, New York State is fast-growing, fast-evolving and at top of mind for wine lovers.
Success stories seldom come in such a complete package as New York State. Once a minor blip on the state’s economic and tourism map, New York’s five internationally recognized wine areas— Long Island, Hudson River Region, Finger Lakes, Niagara Escarpment and Lake Erie—have flourished into internationally recognized destinations and now represent $3.7 billion annually for the state economy. Since 1985, the industry grew from 37 statewide wineries to 375, and from 340,000 tourist visits yearly to over five million.
“The New York wine industry has made a remarkable comeback in the past 30 years in terms of the quality of wines, number of wineries, and economic impact,” said Adam Strum, Publisher and Editor of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. “All of those positive indicators have accelerated tremendously during the past four years, making New York State one of the most vibrant and promising wine-producing destinations in the world.”
The impetus for positive change began in 1985, when former governor Mario M. Cuomo created the New York Wine & Grape Foundation for research and promotion in support of the state’s grape and wine industry. That strong growth has exploded since Andrew M. Cuomo became governor in January 2011: Cuomo has held two New York state Wine, Beer, Spirits and Cider summits; changed numerous laws and regulations; and launched an aggressive promotional program in support of the farm-based craft beverage sector.
The quality of New York wines has improved just as dramatically, thanks largely to research sponsored by the Foundation, projects spearheaded by Cornell University, and the growing expertise of committed vintners in the regions. Today, New York wines made of varieties including Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Riesling and native varieties such as Seyval and Traminette are garnering serious praise among sommeliers and critics alike, with consistently high critical scores and more than 700 top awards in major competitions around the world.
“This award literally belongs to hundreds of people who have worked together on many fronts to improve the quality of our grapes and wines to grow our industry, and to market the products, “ says Jim Trezise, president of the New York Wine & Grape Foundation, representing wineries statewide.

Fox Run Receives Winery Award at Unity Banquet

Thursday, February 26, 2015 The New York Wine & Grape Foundation said a big "Thank You" to several individuals and businesses at its annual "Unity Banquet" on Thursday, February 26 at the Rochester Institute of Technology Conference Center, site of Cornell Cooperative Extension's three-day B.E.V. NY symposium.
The Foundation is a statewide, not-for-profit trade association representing grape growers, grape juice manufacturers, wineries and others in the Lake Erie, Niagara Escarpment, Finger Lakes, Hudson River, Long Island and other regions. Part of its mandate is to stimulate coordination and cooperation among all segments of the industry in all regions. Its overall goal is "to have the New York grape and wine industry recognized as a world leader in quality, productivity, and social responsibility."
The Unity Banquet was created over 25 years ago as a way to recognize, encourage, and celebrate cooperation among grape growers, wineries, grape juice producers and others to advance the entire industry. "Diversity is our strength, and unity is our power," said Foundation President Jim Trezise. In addition to the "Unity Award", several others have been added in different categories over the years.
The "Winery Award"-recognizing wineries which have advanced the widespread recognition and quality reputation of New York wines-was presented to Fox Run Vineyards on the west side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes. Co-owned by Scott and Ruth Osborn and celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, Fox Run has long been known for the consistently high quality of its wines. Fox Run is also an excellent model of collaboration in terms of production (Peter Bell working with other winemakers) and industry advancement: Scott Osborn is currently serving as volunteer president of not one but two separate organizations created to protect and advance industry interests.

Fox Run Vineyards Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

Monday, February 23, 2015 As popularity continues to climb in the Finger Lakes wine region, one company has been paving the way for others for the past quarter century. In 2015, Fox Run Vineyards will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with a variety of events throughout the year.

Vines were first planted on the property in 1984. The Civil War-era dairy barn was converted into a tasting room and winemaking facility in 1989. The tasting room opened to the public in 1990. When Scott Osborn first purchased the property with his original partner, Andy Hale, there were only 14 wineries on Seneca Lake and a total of 36 in the Finger Lakes.

"Fox Run Vineyards is a dream come true. The international recognition we have received thus far is a testament to the hard work our staff puts in daily. From welcoming every visitor through our doors, the expansion into new markets, to making extraordinary award-winning wines that a customer buys and shares with their friends," says Scott Osborn. "We will celebrate the past 25 years and build for the next generation to continue the legacy of Fox Run Vineyards."

The Fox Run Vineyards' Tasting Room is open year-round from 10-6 Mon-Sat and 11-6 on Sundays offering tastings of current vintages including small-lot releases not available in stores or restaurants. Tours of the property are also available highlighting the history of Fox Run and winemaking in the Finger Lakes. Customers who purchase both the tour and tasting receive a discounted combination ticket of $8. The on-site Café & Market will reopen for the season on April 1st. Open daily from 11 am-5 pm April-November, café customers can enjoy al fresco dining on the deck and menu items highlighting New York State products and produce from the onsite garden.

The Food & Wine Experience returns in 2015 beginning in June. Guests enjoy an educational and culinary showcase offering a personal experience starting with a walking tour followed by a light lunch served in our historic barrel room. A selection of local cheeses, charcuterie, greens and fresh baked bread accompanies a flight of six wines. The cost is $40 per person and includes a keepsake glass. Reservations are required and can be made by visiting the website, www.foxrunvineyards.com.

The Burning of The Canes is a new event which will take place on Saturday, March 14th from 12-4 pm. Each winter after harvest, grape vines are pruned to ensure a good crop of grapes the following season. From the old tradition in winemaking regions of France, the Burning of the Canes will celebrate the previous year's work and prepare for the upcoming season by hosting an outdoor feast and burning the cuttings (canes). The day will include food and wine, bonfires and live music. More information is available on the website.

The 23rd Annual Glorious Garlic Festival will be held on August 1-2, 2015. Feast on food flavored with fresh garlic, enjoy festival vendors including regional garlic farmers, pick up a tip from local Finger Lakes chefs' garlic cooking demonstrations. Soak up some sunshine and enjoy the views of Seneca Lake while listening to great musical entertainment and sipping on Fox Run wine. Free admission and parking. The weekend starts off on July 30th with the Thursday night Garlic Festival concert featuring The Town Pants.

Returning this year only is the Glorious Garlic Dinner to be held on Saturday night. A gorgeous view of Seneca Lake will accompany a 5-course dinner filled with the best selections of Finger Lakes sourced ingredients infused with garlic and paired with Fox Run wines. This tented event will be held at the top of the vineyards, offering a sunset view and moon lit lake accompanied by music.

House Hunters Visits Fox Run Vineyards

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 The Geneva couple who will appear on HGTV's "House Hunters" chose to feature Fox Run Vineyards during the filming of their episode that will appear on Thursday, January 8th at 10 pm. The episode, "Couple Needs Space to Raise Twins in Upstate New York" follows Jessica and John Balduzzi of Geneva to a few of their favorite places in Jessica's hometown during the filming of the show.

Fox Run was contacted by the show's production company about a week before the scheduled filming to ask if they were interested in being filmed. Several different scenes were shot at the winery last June. The couple sat on the back patio looking out on the vineyard and enjoyed a glass of wine while browsing through the houses on a tablet. They were also filmed doing a wine tasting with co-owner Ruth Osborn.

"We were so excited that a local couple was chosen to be filmed for HGTV's 'House Hunters' and that they wanted to include us," says owner Scott Osborn. "Our staff is excited to see how Fox Run will be featured in the episode. New avenues that showcase the Finger Lakes are positive, and hopefully this will spark interest to a new audience about Upstate New York and Finger Lakes wineries."

My mother loved a good Riesling in the summertime. It's the type of wine that bears up under the heat of summer, or early fall, with its own subtleties. The Fox Run Dry Riesling 2013 will satisfy and prolong the sweetness of summer with its crisp finish. Read Peachy Deegan's review of the 2013 Dry Riesling HERE.

Having grown up half an hour away from Napa, I enjoy my big, bold Cabs. That being said, I LOVE trying a new red, and the Lemberger Finger Lakes 2012 from Fox Run Vineyards did not disappoint! I had to do some research on this varietal, as I wasn't familiar with Lemberger. It's a medium-to-full bodied grape, originally from Austria. This particular one from Fox Run Vineyards was delicious. It was nice and peppery!
