Before I close this post, let me just say this. To me, the Finger Lakes agriculture, food, and beverage scene is about a group of people who have created a local culture that emphasizes on the delicious regional cuisine and extraordinary wines, brews, juices, and spirits that makes this area a very attractive and unique place to live and visit. Their products are a reflection of dedication and hard work, which in my eyes, makes them all deserving of a Finger Lakes Foodie Award.
