Bloomer Creek is a true pioneer in natural winemaking in New York State, more specifically in the Finger Lakes Region. If you so much as mention working organically to New York winemakers, you will hear again and again that is an impossible feat, much as the first natural winemakers in the Loire valley and Burgundy heard from their peers. In spite of this, Kim Engle and Debra Bermingham have been crafting beautiful examples of natural wine anyway. They do not use insecticides, finding them to be unnecessary in a healthy vineyard, and herbicides have not been used in over 20 years. Fungus disease is controlled by the use of sulfur for powdery mildew and copper for downy mildew. Seaweed/fish and compost formulations are sprayed to aid in disease resistance and vine health.
Following in the tradition of the Alsace, the Edelzwicker wines are blends of: Riesling; Gewurztraminer; the Finger Lakes own grape "“ Cayuga White. Aromatic with lychee fruit, citrus, pear and as it opens increasingly more green herbal notes of dill weed and fennel.
