New York Wine has a history dating back to the 1860's. New York State wineries are in some of America's oldest commercial wine regions. New York is perhaps the most diverse wine-growing region and ranks third in U.S. grape production. The increased planting of different varietals has led to a dramatic increase in the quality of New York wines, which are now considered some of the best wines in America. With four major wine regions, the range of wines made in New York include Riesling, Blancs, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, sparkling wines, Cabernet Sauvignon and others.
