Harvey Greenberg began serious wine appreciation while stationed at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH, during the late 1970s. A local wine shop called “Manor Wine” had terrific in-store tastings, and he and his wife became friendly with the owners and three other couples. These were days of $15-$30 classified growth Bordeaux and Burgundy wines with occasional splurges into the likes of Lafite Rothschild and Romanée-Conti. Annual trips to the in-laws in Sacramento allowed for forays into California Wine Country when it was really getting exciting.
Harv moved to the Finger Lakes at the end of 2006 and became enamored with the beauty, the people, and ever-improving cold climate wines. He was also able to dust off his pilots license, which allows him to enjoy flying and wine. Just not at the same time.
