Enjoy the View! NY Fingerlakes Region- Seneca Lake

imageWe are we are often asked why we moved to the ‘country’ from NYC, almost eight years ago this month…..family, lifestyle, and views like this of Seneca Lake from the wine tasting bar at Lamoreaux Landing on Seneca Lake in the Fingerlakes Region of Upstate New York…those reasons are why we have made this place home.

Wine grower Rick Rainey of Forge Cellars posted an entry about the recent hail storm that they endured on Seneca Lake. The job of vineyard manager is sometimes a heartbreaking one, and he relays the joys and sorrows of living and farming in this climate. Check out his post here: A real connection with Burgundy-of not a good sort. Mother Nature can be heartless as much as beautiful, and the journey of growing here shows the love for the craft these men have.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from your resident boozywife and The Hand of Fate Tattoo Parlor in Ithaca, NY! I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store, and where we end up along the way–I’ll be posting more tattoo convention dates soon, so stay tuned…more wines, booze, beautiful tattoo work, and travel around the world. How is that for a resolution?
