New York is the third largest grape producing state in the nation, but not everyone is aware of that and the fact that the largest wine producing region in the state is right in our backyard.
We did some research and according to the New York State Tourism Study, there are 118 wineries in our area. Most of them are in the Finger Lakes and concentrated around Cayuga, Seneca and Keuka Lakes. Last year alone, the wineries in our region accounted for $2.75 billion in economic activity.
Casa Larga in Perinton is just one of those wineries. It's celebrating the Purple Foot Festival this weekend. Nikki Rudd got a preview of the festival on News10NBC Today. To see her stomping some grapes, click on the video player above.
