Nathan Kendall: Rising star of New York’s Finger Lakes

Nathan Kendall believes in wines that display a true sense of place – the place he calls home in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. A pioneer for the next generation of New York wine, Kendall’s widely celebrated commitment to the land and its people comes to life through both his wines and actions.

Driving down Route 14 in Dundee, New York, a clear day reveals rolling hills of grape vines along either side of Seneca Lake. Seneca is the largest and deepest of the 11 glacially carved Finger Lakes in upstate New York. The lush terrain and diverse microclimates across its 61 kilometres are home to over 60 producers, including Nathan Kendall.

His name is becoming increasingly familiar to those watching New York’s growing wine scene. Kendall has topped various wine industry recognition lists over the last few years as a rapidly rising star in both New York and American wine. He calls the attention ‘truly humbling for a small-town person.’
