Writer and founder of wine blog The Vinguard, Pamela Busch recently wrote about her visit to Bloomer Creek. Her August 27th, 2015 article, titled "Could the Finger Lakes be the New World Loire?" showcases Bloomer Creek's dedication and passion for natural winemaking.

"Nearly everyone I met said that it is impossible to be organic or make natural wine in the Finger Lakes. However, Debra Bermingham and Kim Engle of Bloomer Creek Vineyard doth protest. If their wines didn’t have so much inherent purity and intricacy I’d just mention this as a point of interest and move on. Yet, that would be a massive disservice as this is one of the best producers in North America."

Pamela includes full tasting notes for all of the wine as well. Read the whole article here.
