'I’ve worked at Triphammer Wines and Spirits for over four years. In that time, I’ve tasted a thousand different wines made from over one-hundred different grapes. Among my favorite red wines are the reds from the Italian Piedmont, including Barolo, Barbaresco, and Barbera d’Asti; from California. I adore Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel; and, for a great value, the red wines from Spain and Portugal are tough to beat. My favorite white wine grape is Riesling! Luckily, there are many fine examples produced locally in the Finger Lakes, so I’ll never grow bored. Living in the Finger Lakes is also great because I get the opportunity to visit local wineries and meet the producers responsible for our great local wines. While working at Triphammer, I’ve also developed a passion for bourbon and other American whiskies. My current whiskey collection includes over 40 different bourbons and ryes with bottles representing each of the major Kentucky distilleries. In my free time, I enjoy home brewing beer and making my own hard cider from local juice. I plan to produce my first batch of homemade wine this fall from juice purchased from Fulkerson Wine Cellars on Seneca Lake.
