Fox Run wine gets prominent spot at Calgary Stampede

Publication: Finger Lakes Times   |   Friday, May 13, 2016

The folks at Fox Run Vineyards are hoping there will be a stampede for their wine at a big Canadian rodeo this summer. A Fox Run wine has been selected as the featured white wine for premium venues at the Calgary Stampede this July.
The Fox Run 2015 Doyle Family Unoaked Chardonnay was selected by the Calgary Stampede and will be poured in various hospitality locations during the 10-day event the winery said.
“We received a warm welcome into the Alberta market from the start,” said Fox Run owner Scott Osborn. “The opportunity to showcase our wine at the Calgary Stampede is a testament to the quality wines that Fox Run produces in smaller quantities. 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. The 10-day event, which bills itself as “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth,” attracts over 1 million visitors each year to Stampede Park, which is comprised of 208 acres. The event celebrates the history and celebration of rodeo and agriculture, and features a vast array of arts, agricultural exhibits and musical performances. Each day concludes with a rodeo competition followed by chuckwagon races.
Fox Run Vineyards wines — including a reserve-tier chardonnay, cabernet franc, lemberger and various rieslings — have been available in Alberta for over two years and are currently sold in boutique liquor stores and restaurants across the province.
“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,” said Jim Trezise, president of the New York Wine & Grape Foundation, which selected Fox Run Vineyards as Winery of the Year in 2015.

Summer fun: Popular destinations welcome canines

There’s no need to leave your dog home when you’re out and about. “Traveling with their pets has become a way of life for a lot of people,” says Amy Burkert, pet travel expert and owner of gopetfriendly.com.
In acknowledgement of the close bond between owners and their canine buddies, a variety of venues are going to the dogs. Here are three great pastimes that are available around the country.
If you love wine but hate to leave your dog at home, here’s good news: A number of wineries, like Fox Run Vineyards, allow dogs in their tasting rooms.
Known for its chardonnay, riesling and cabernet franc, Fox Run overlooks Seneca Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes region and is a gorgeous spot to enjoy a glass of wine with your dog (for legal reasons, dogs aren’t permitted in the café-restaurant area).
Understanding that owners like having their dogs with them, winery and dog owner Scott Osborn says, “People who visit with their dogs are more relaxed, and getting people to relax and enjoy themselves is our goal.”

Why Some Winemakers Don't Just Put a Cork In It

Publication: Wall Street Journal   |   Thursday, September 10, 2015

A FEW WEEKS AGO I was sitting on a suburban commuter train bound for New York when a group of men who looked to be in their late 30s entered the car. They were talking about the best place to find a cheap drink close to Penn Station. After settling on a Chinese restaurant where 'a big glass of whiskey' cost $5, the discussion shifted to wine. One of the three men remarked that he'd joined a wine club but was worried when the bottles arrived and were all closed with screw caps. "I thought 'Uh-oh,' " he said. One of his friends replied 'Uh-oh,' signaling that they both thought screw caps meant something bad.
Peter Bell, winemaker of Fox Run Vineyards in New York's Finger Lakes region, returned to cork in 2013 after more than a decade of using synthetic, citing leakage and an occasional 'rubbery' smell. Mr. Bell said he wishes he could use screw caps but retrofitting his bottling line would cost as much as $50,000.

Martini teamed up with Fox Run Vineyards owner Scott Osborn and Villa Bellangelo owner Chris Missick on a European venture called New York Wines, SaRL. Incorporated in Luxembourg, the venture enables the wineries to ship wines in large containers instead of small batches, cutting down the cost of freight. The joint venture has a warehouse and offices in Brussels, Belgium.
In its first year in 2014, the three Seneca Lake wineries shipped 2,500 cases of wines that sold in several European countries, including Denmark, Belgium, Germany, France, Sweden, Finland and Scotland, Osborn said.
“What we found is that the quality of our wines is far superior and cheaper,” Osborn said.

Most of the eleven bodies of water that collectively form the Finger Lakes in upstate New York are long and thin, as if The Wolverine had slashed through a swath of 9,000 square miles with all ten retractable claws plus one. Each has its own vibe and history, though the largest of the lakes, Cayuga and Seneca, typically get the largest number of tourists.

Take a Tour and Tasting ($8), and learn how the geography and climate of the Finger Lakes makes for top Rieslings and Chardonnays. Owner Scott Osborn got into the "wine-making biz" in California, but loves being out here making cold climate wines. The Finger Lakes were once underwater, so the soil is both sandy and loamy, and Fox Run has been experimenting with and researching the effects on quality and taste of grapes grown in all microclimates of this particular "terroir."

Wine Enthusiast Magazine's November 2014 issue announced their Top 100 Best Buys of 2014. This list, generated by the editors of the magazine, ranked Fox Run Vineyards 2013 Chardonnay, Doyle Family Vineyards at #41. Considered the ultimate list of the year's best values, Fox Run was the highest ranked Finger Lakes wine and one of only 30 US wines on the list.

The review of the 2013 Chardonnay first appeared in the September 2014 issue of Wine Enthusiast. It received a score of 89 points and the following review from Contributing Editor Anna Lee Iijima, "The addition of 9% Traminette lends a blossomy flair to fresh apple and tangerine notes in this bright, unoaked Chardonnay. Brisk and revitalizing, with a zesty lime-toned acidity, it's a satisfying late-summer quaffer at a bargain price."

The wine retails for $11.99 in the Fox Run Tasting Room. It is also available at your favorite local wine shop.

Is pink the new white? A complicated new era for rosé

Publication: San Francisco Gate   |   Friday, May 23, 2014

By Jon Bonné. I am confused. Over the past decade, I have spilled more ink about rosé than I'd care to remember. Always, there has been a story line. Ten years ago, it was that not enough people drank pink wine, that it was due more attention. That, it got. We have since witnessed rosé rising, rosé falling, rosé putting on serious airs. Rosé as new status symbol, filling coolers in the Hamptons. That one of this year's picks is a project from Mr. Pitt and Ms. Jolie - yes, we went there - sums it all up tidily.

Let's start with the good news: Rosé finally has the respect it has long deserved - as a significant wine of its own. Afterthought no more. Pink is the new white.

Fox Run - A Member of The Light Brigade
I know there's a tendency to spurn wines that walk with a light step. Please, do not shun this group. These are the wines for a long spell on the porch on a summer afternoon. When you want a quick glass with a light meal on one of those days when it's almost too hot to eat. (Scratch that: Never too hot to eat.)

These are, with a nod to our beery friends, session rosés. Read the entire article HERE.

2013 Fox Run Vineyards Rosé of Pinot Noir - Sold Out
Our sole East Coast contender. This established New York producer has made a name farther afield for its Riesling, but here's a perfect example of Pinot Noir in a cold spot, near Seneca Lake. Great raspberry, fig and chopped tarragon freshness - for that slight herbal tinge that lifts pink Pinot.

Real Men Drink Rosé: Ten to Try Now

By Katie Kelly Bell. I like to tell people that I knew Rosé when. Of course she’s famous now. Everyone loves her. People talk about her as if they always loved her, always knew she’d hit the big time. But, let’s be honest, Rosé has been resuscitated from life support. Most of us can easily remember (along with the Cold War), when Rosé was dismissed as a pink confection, just a notch in class above the wine cooler, or maybe even a notch below. She was that wine you served your 75 year-old grandma, not something you’d see in the hand of Brad Pitt or Mick Jagger.

Well my friends, Rosé is in. So “in” that cool, smart people everywhere are drinking it, especially men. This is probably the most striking change. Sure, sommeliers and wine geeks have understood the food-friendly, refreshing versatility of Rosé for years. But everyday Cabernet-drinking guys?

So, Why Should You Drink Rosé? In short, Rosé rarely disappoints. She’s such a work horse wine—delivering structure, pretty fruit and acidity at a great price (I rarely see one above $20 a bottle). I recently tasted over 50 different rosés and this tasting was as wonderful as last year’s with just about every wine hitting high notes. Note: almost every single wine was delicious. You just can’t go wrong with this style. Read the entire article HERE.

2013 Fox Run Vineyards Rosé of Pinot Noir - Sold Out
Blushing soft pink hue, almost translucent. With its bone dry elegance it could easily be from Provence. Watermelon, ripe melon, roses, and white peach on the palate. Crisp, brilliant, mouth-watering finish.

The tasting panel suggests Thanksgiving wines - By Eric Asimov. This isn't your first time selecting wines for the holiday. You've absorbed all the advice, you've succeeded brilliantly before, and you may lament the annual suggestions, back like vampires at full moon. But maybe, unconsciously, you would like to have your memory jogged a bit with some further thoughts, freshly presented. Who wouldn't?

We each select two wines, a white and a red, that we think will be delicious with a typical holiday meal. We limit ourselves to bottles that cost no more than $25. As far as wine goes, turkey is like a big, friendly pooch; it pretty much cozies up to anything you serve. Florence and Pete both brought cabernet francs. Florence's, a 2010 Fox Run from the Finger Lakes, was earthy and pleasantly bitter, an excellent choice.
