In October 2012, Governor Andrew Cuomo held a summit in Albany to promote New York's wine, beer and spirits industry. In his 2013 state budget proposal he also made provision for additional support for promoting New York products, including wine and beer, and promoting upstate tourism. But one upstate culinary center says that there's a piece of the puzzle missing from the governor's plans.


Innovation Trail editor Matthew Leonard reports from Canandaigua on the Finger Lakes, where the New York Wine and Culinary Center believes that better knowledge about the region's wine, beer and spirits will produce big payoffs in the upstate tourist market. The starting point of that is to address the state's shortfall of Master Sommeliers.




Innovation Trail is a reporting project that aims to help the public gain a better understanding about some of the big issues that upstate New York communities are facing. Our reports focus on research, development, education, funding, and policy issues in emerging fields like energy, information technology, biotech, health and education. Now in its third year the project continues to explore the relationship between technological breakthroughs and the revitalization of upstate New York.
Our team of journalists are based across the region from Buffalo to Albany and into the North Country. The initiative is a collaboration of six upstate New York public media outlets, led by WXXI, along with WNED, WRVO, WSKG, WMHT and NCPR funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
