In this episode, we survey two of the vineyards that will be used in Villa Bellangelo's fine Finger Lakes wines. With harvest approaching, little else needs to be said, as each passing day ripens the fruit and we all stand ready, to bring the best of the 2012 vintage back to the winery to be pressed and fermented.

Villa Bellangelo sources the majority of the vinifera varietals that go into their fine wines, from two sources: Jeff Morris, owner of Glenora Farms, and Marty Gibson, owner of Gibson Farms.  In this short clip, Ian Barry, winemaker for Villa Bellangelo on the west side of Seneca Lake, discusses the process of cropping vines, and why winemakers prefer vines where the crop levels have been reduced.
