Imagine Moore / Inspire Moore Wine - New York State delicious wine!

Greetings foodies!  I thought I'd mention something today that I haven't brought up before - I love wine.  Specifically, while we produce wonderful wines all over the world, we also produce world-class wines right here in New York state - and indeed, some right here in New York's Hudson Valley.  In future postings I'll be reviewing and showing you some of the many delicious wines that New York state has to offer.

If you're new to wine, don't be intimidated - wine is for everyone, forget the snobbery or things you might have heard.  It's healthy, it's delicious - and it also makes one feel good.. When consumed in moderation of course.

A while back, I sampled a few wines from the Imagine Moore Winery.  Tim and Diane Moore own this winery and they produce an absolutely fantastic product!  The winery has since been renamed "Inspire Moore" for various reasons but Tim and Diane still run the ship and are still producing fantastic wine!

I first encountered their wine at the Oswego Harborfest - a yearly festival that takes place in Oswego, NY.  (http:://www.oswegoharborfest.com for more info.)  Suffice it to say, it's the last full weekend in July every year and among the free music, vendors, shows, and such, there are also wine vendors, eager to have you sample their wares.  This is where I had my first exposure to Inspire Moore's wines.  After taking a few home, I realized that that I wanted to try everything they had: So I ordered a mixed case, which they were happy to make up and ship to me (and gave me a nice case discount to boot!)

Red wine, white wine, and Rose I got from Inspire Moore Winery in Naples, NY
This was the mixed case that I got from Inspire Moore - something to please everyone! :)

I was so impressed with Tim and Diane's offerings that I've been sure to pick up a bottle or two of their wine every time I've seen them, most recently at the Hudson Valley Wine and Food Festival which is yearly in Rhinebeck, NY - at the very top of Dutchess county.  I highly recommend you come to this wonderful festival if you're within a reasonable distance - you won't believe the variety and quality of wine that New York state has to offer!

Try their Reisling or Pinot Noir - Their wines are affordable and well made.


  1. Gotta try some of this....

  2. I'll have to give the Pinot Noir a try.

  3. As it would happen, I have been invited to a sangria party today and I need to bring a nice red. I will try to find the Pinot Noir at my local wine merchant. Thanks for the heads up!
