fromeach of the wineries.
This donation is made possible through the generous support of both our New York State wineries, who have reduced their
prices to us, and of Hanover Warehouse and Fleetwood Forwarding, who are waiving all handling and delivery charges for
these wines. Furthermore, we appreciate that all of our sales people in the tri-state area will forgo commission on the sale of
these wines as their contribution to the donation.
We thank you in advance, on behalf of those in need, for any support you can offer and hope the results will be significant.
Red Tail Ridge Winery
Located in New York's Finger Lakes region, Red Tail Ridge Winery is owned and operated by the husband and wife Mike
Schnelle and Nancy Irelan. Mike and Nancy moved to Seneca Lake fromCalifornia to create a winery from the bottom up. As a
former executive in charge of viticulture and oenology R&D at a large winery, Nancy strongly believes in sustainability. Not only
is Red Tail Ridge farmed in a sustainable manner it is also the first LEED certified winery in New York. They are a limited
production winery, crafting premiumwines that faithfully reflect their origins.

In 2006-2007, Nancy planted the RTR vineyard with clones 90, 110, 198 and 239. Estate fruit
from this single vineyard was harvested on 8 October and fermented at cool temperatures in
small-lot stainless steel tanks. Total fermentation time was 43 days and malolactic was
blocked to preserve natural varietal aromas. Pronounced notes of musk melon, pineapple
and apricot meet subtle notes of passion fruit and minerals. Viscous yet balanced, crisp
acidity provides lift to the clean and expressive finish. 430 cases produced.
Bob and Joyce Pellegrini founded Pellegrini Vineyards in 1982. Located in Cutchogue, New York on Long Island, the
Pellegrinis began with 30 acres, which are now home to the oldest vines in the appellation. In 1988, they acquired two
additional parcels just down the road – the 14-acre South Harbor vineyard and the 28-acre Richmond Creek vineyard, both of
which face south and are planted to well draining, loamy soils. The Pellegrinis are dedicated farmers and viticulturists. Their
careful clonal and rootstock selection and progressive growing methods are constantly tweaked in an effort to make wines
which honestly express Long Island terroir.
