Eminence Road Farm Winery is what to drink this fall

Here's a little wine math for you:

Take one ton grapes, add two people (and their four feet) and you can crush all those suckers in two hours.

Andrew Scott and his wife, Jennifer Clark, do precisely that when making their stupendous wines at Eminence Road Farm Winery, located in a mountain valley in Delaware County, New York.

Scott started out making wine in his New Jersey basement and is now turning out such fine bottles as the 2011 Eminence Road Farm Winery East Seneca Lake Dry Riesling ($20 for 750ml). Bone dry with full malolactic fermentation and aromas of hay and stone fruit, it pairs nicely with spicy fall foods such as curries and hard cheeses.

He transports the hand-harvested Finger Lakes grapes himself, and then ferments, matures and bottles the wine unfined and unfiltered. The wine is produced at his hillside cow barn without added yeasts, nutrients, sugars, processing agents or flavor enhancers.

Sounds like good math to us.
