NY Wine Grape Task Force Report

The North Fork’s own Kareem Massoud of Paumanok Vineyards was the chair of the November 2007-created task force charged with assesing and offering suggestions of how to improve the growing and sales climate ofthe New York State wine grape industry.

And they have just issued their report, available on the website of the State Department of Agriculture and Markets.

Not surprisingly, the first thing the task force addresses is the State Liquor Authority.

The antiquated Alcoholic Beverage Control Law should be reformed in a manner that provides a level playing field with other wine producing states and accommodates the needs of New York wineries.

Read an article about it here. I have to go to work.
