Back Lane Wineries of New York State, a beautiful book by Nish Gera, with Tilar J. Mazzeo, and photographs by Peter Verbrugghe, is now available in print and digital editions from fine book retailers around the world!
Only a few hours from New York City, along the picturesque back lanes of the state and often amid spectacular natural beauty, the countryside is dotted with hundreds of small wineries where world-class vintages are being made. These are the hand-crafted wines with increasingly international reputations that you won’t find readily on the grocery store shelves, produced in small, artisanal lots by producers guided by one shared passion: making New York State wines that are redefining excellence.
Along the back lanes, there are still discoveries to be made, and this is the quintessential insider guide to the New York State wine country. Lushly illustrated, with insider tips on both up-and-coming new producers and established cult wineries, this is your road-trip passport to the tasting trail.
Look for it from these retailers, or ask/search for it from your favorite bookshop!
Early readers love Back Lane Wineries! Here’s what some of them have to say:
This book contains gorgeous photographs. It has useful descriptions, and acts as a good reminder that tasting wine is supposed to be fun! It is really calming, like talking with a knowledgeable — but not snobby — friend about how to create a wine-tasting tour. Mr. Gera makes this task seem very approachable…
I used this book during my recent weekend trip to upstate NY. We used this book as a sole reference and found some world class wineries. It proved to be a perfect road trip companion. This book focuses on the small, mostly family owned wineries that were difficult to find/discover (at least for me). The stories behind each winery provided helpful context before we walked into the winery… I am planning to give this book as a summer gift to a few friends.
We really enjoyed working with Nish, Tilar and Peter to produce this wonderful book.
