Barry Family Cellars Jewels & Binoculars Riesling Finger Lakes NY 750ml

In stock


Ian made this wine in collaboration with Bellwether Wine Cellars, his fellow FLX winemakers from the nearby Trumansburg. The name comes from a mysterious lyric in a Bob Dylan song.

Grapes: Riesling

Vineyards: several vineyards on the west side of Seneca Lake, grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides

Making of: blend of several different vintages fermented spontaneously in different vessels (75% stainless steel tanks) that sat on the gros lees for an extended period of time (various depending on the vintage). About 20% of the blend was on the lees for over two years. Small amount of sulfur added at crush, bottled unfined and unfiltered with no added sulfur.

Personality: light and easy-drinking, but with a unique depth of flavor. Compelling balance of savory and fruit notes and pleasant acidity.

Barry Family Cellars was founded in 2011 by Ken and Ian Barry in Burdett, New York, near Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes Region. Ian worked at wineries in the Hudson Valley, Oregon and Washington, and makes the Barry Family wines with techniques he personally enjoys, eschewing intervention in favor of more minimalist techniques.
