FLCC Winemaker Tasting Series

The 2017 Lemberger Vintage was created by Elisabeth Dudek, Chelsea Mastro, and Natalie Vavra. All are 2018 graduates of FLCC's Viticulture and Wine Technology program. Elisabeth and Chelsea will be at this event to discuss their winemaking experience and pour their Lemberger! Stop on down and support our local winemakers :)

Elisabeth Dudek
After visiting the Finger Lakes wine region for many family picnics and gatherings, the genuine camaraderie felt at every winery, the picturesque locations, and the science of the artistry of making wines, became extremely intriguing. She decided to pursue studying wine, and go on to immerse herself in the industry, by working to complete a degree in Viticulture and Wine-Making at Finger Lakes Community College. She plans to stay involved with the many local events in the Finger Lakes Wine Industry and continue to make wine at home. 

Chelsea Mastro
Reaching a cross-roads between jobs and feeling passionate, Chelsea decided to pursue a career in the wine industry. It didn’t take long before she fell in love with the many different aspects of the Finger Lakes Wine region, and she grew further appreciation for the process of wine-making. Focusing on red varietals, Chelsea dedicated time to researching wines made from Cabernet-Franc and Lemberger, as well as being involved with making the white varietal wines, created by her peers.
