Hudson, NY – Neverstill Wines, a trailblazing venture led by an all-female team, proudly announces its emergence into New York's Finger Lakes wine scene with its June 2024 inaugural releases: a crisp Chenin Blanc and captivating Riesling, poised to ignite interest in New York wine. 

Neverstill founder Christy Counts was drawn to the Finger Lakes by its emerging reputation for cool climate viticulture and its location in the eastern US. "The transportation and shipping of wine is one of the biggest contributors to the wine industry's carbon footprint," she explains.  “Instead of shipping wines into New York from California or Europe, why not grow grapes and create wines here?  Grape varieties such as Riesling benefit from the longer growing season of the region, and the cool climate wines of the Finger Lakes, characterized by their lighter bodies and lower alcohol content, align perfectly with evolving consumer preferences.”

Acknowledging the environmental impact of the wine industry, Neverstill Wines champions sustainability as a core value. By prioritizing local production and reducing transportation emissions through innovative bottling choices. Neverstill aims to minimize its ecological footprint without compromising on quality.

In late 2022, the esteemed Master of Wine, Nova Cadamatre, joined Neverstill team as its winemaker, bringing unparalleled expertise and a passion for innovation. The team expanded further with the addition of Bryce Lianna as assistant winemaker during the 2023 harvest. Together, these three dynamic women are on a mission to showcase the exceptional quality of wines crafted in New York.

Captivated by the city's rich tapestry of art, antiques, and culinary delights, Christy selected Hudson, New York as the home for Neverstill's forthcoming tasting room, which opens this August. The tasting room, designed by acclaimed designer and former EVP of Art & Design at ABC Carpet & Home, Amy Ilias, promises an experience as unique as the wines themselves.

As climate change reshapes the landscape of global viticulture, New York emerges as a beacon of resilience and innovation. Neverstill Wines stands at the forefront of this transformation, heralding a new era for the US wine industry.
