New York Wine & Grape Foundation Debuts New Brand + Snags Spots on Wine Enthusiast’s 40 Under 40 List

New York Wine & Grape Foundation Debuts New Brand + Snags Spots on Wine Enthusiast’s 40 Under 40 List

August 22nd, 2019 - New York, NY - View as Webpage The New York Wine & Grape Foundation (NYWGF) has revealed a new logo and tagline, ushering in an exciting chapter in the Foundation’s efforts to support New York’s wine and grape industry. “Boldly N.Y.” celebrates the intrepid attitude and strong spirit of the New York wine and grape community.

All new assets are part of the Foundation’s brand refresh which will continue to expand over the next year. From the East End of Long Island to the North Country to the Lake Erie Concord Grape Belt, from planting seeds to final sip, the NYWGF supports the exceptional wines, wineries, vineyards and grape growers in the state of New York.
Earlier today, Wine Enthusiast honored the bold efforts of the Foundation by naming NYWGF executives Sam Filler (Executive Director) and Paul Brady (Brand Ambassador) to the Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 Tastemakers list.

The Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 list recognizes the young winemakers, brewers, beverage directors, grape growers, and other movers and shakers who are changing today’s beverage industry. Since his appointment in 2017, Sam Filler has led the Foundation in supporting sustainability efforts and has spearheaded marketing initiatives to elevate the image of New York wines. Paul Brady has brought his personal expertise as a sommelier and longtime member of the New York wine scene to the Foundation, providing expert insight on the intricate innovations across the state.
“It’s an honor to be named to this prestigious list of tastemakers who are all so wonderfully dedicated to their craft and profession,” said Sam Filler, Executive Director, New York Wine & Grape Foundation. “It’s the perfect time to debut our new look, and show that we, as an organization and state, are boldly moving forward. We’re excited to share the incredible product and passion of our state’s wine and grape industry.”

NYWGF has been working tirelessly to give growers, producers, winemakers and wine experts in the Empire state a bigger spotlight in the world of wine, offering ongoing support for their exceptional work and product. The Foundation’s new marketing initiative aesthetically elevates the brand’s presence both online and off, furthering the Foundation’s aim to engage with industry insiders and consumers around the world. The new branding will be incorporated into all brand resources and events as of today.

In addition to representing New York’s wine and grape industry at international wine events year-round, in New York the Foundation provides many opportunities for buyers, distributors and consumers to experience the best of New York wines. The Foundation hosts the annual NY Drinks NY Grand Tasting event in New York City (coming March 31, 2020), the New York Wine Classic competition which honors the best wines throughout the state (see this year’s winners here ) and ongoing consumer education initiatives including complimentary expert classes at the New York State Fair and the newly debuted Sustainable Wine Professional Course from Long Island Sustainable Winegrowing (learn more here ).

About us

Company portrait

The New York Wine & Grape Foundation was founded in 1985 by State Statute to support industry growth through investments in promotion, research, and capacity building. Today, our public-private partnership drives the industry’s growth and makes it a major state economic engine that generates more than $6 billion in direct economic impact. 

Each summer, USA Today’s conducts a reader poll to choose the best of the best in a variety of categories. This program year, the Finger Lakes region was voted #1 in the Best Wine Region category.

New York wines continued to garner praise-worthy attention in international publications throughout 2018 and 2019. Anthony Road Wine Company’s 2017 Dry Riesling received a 95 from James Suckling. Eric Asimov, the New York Times Wine Critic, said of the Ravines 2009 Argetsinger Dry Riesling, “maybe the best American Riesling I’ve ever had.” Finger Lakes winemaker Nathan Kendall, of Nathan K. Wines, was recognized in Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers. Pinot Noir continues to gain traction in New York state, with wines from Hosmer Vineyards and Dr. Konstantin Frank both earning 90 points. Pinot Noir in sparkling form also received high praise from viticulturalist, author and critic Dr. Jamie Goode, giving historical sparkling wine producers Glenora Cellars and Dr. Konstantin Frank a 90, for a 2013 Traditional Method Brut blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, and an 89 for a 2013 Brut Rose, respectively.

Both Long Island and the Hudson Valley received well deserved attention from Forbes and SevenFifty Daily. Age-Worthy Long Island Wines Prove the Region’s Longevity, was the title of a Forbes story which also called out the 1999 Merlot from Raphael on the North Fork as being “an elegant beauty, with plump black fruit alongside notes of cassis, licorice, and dried flower petals.” Forbes writer Susan Gordon wrote of the wine production in the Hudson Valley: “Today, the Hudson River Region is rich in quality hybrids and vinifera.” And in SevenFiftyDaily, writer Courtney Schiessl reported on the Long Island Sustainable Wine Growing Group, which is striving to unite not just Long Island, but the entire state to come together on a cohesive, sustainable, growing standard recognized statewide.

Other notable highlights: Vinepair named the Finger Lakes #2 in The World’s Top 10 Wine Destinations for 2019. Wine Enthusiast published an article, Why You Should Explore Finger Lakes Riesling highlighting five wines to try from: Hosmer Winery, Wagner Vineyards, Damiani Wine Cellars, Bellwether, and Fox Run Vineyards (all scoring above 90 Points). Roman Roth made The Wine’s Most Inspiring People 2019: Striving for Quality and Uniqueness by Wine Industry Advisor.
