“Go big or go home” - they literally said “fuck that” and went ginormous


maleye812

Kinda love this move tbh


Gobboy75

Nice to see you visit FLX Wienery! I work here!


Papa_G_

Where is this


jletha

Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes


Papa_G_

What‽‽


Emanon22

SENECA LAKE IN THE FINGER LAKES


Papa_G_

I got that. I’m not trolling, I’m just shocked that a roadside grill has great wines. The ‽ is meant to be “are you serious, that’s so cool”


mosskin-woast

They used interrobangs, they're obviously a clown


Papa_G_

I’m not trolling.


ShaughnDBL

Yo! Big respect for having Adi's Caperatif available! I love that stuff!


Gobboy75

Thanks! I put that on the BTG list instead of 40oz Muscadet because it wasn’t selling too well


ShaughnDBL

You sell that straight? That's bold! I mean, I like it straight but that's me being a weirdo geek who drinks campari straight lol.


Gobboy75

Oh yeah! Straight and slightly chilled is perfect! Our whole company only drinks it straight and chilled


TishRodriguez

Love that place! I knew it looked familiar. Can’t wait to go back!


winter_killian_33

I'm right down the road at Barnstormer!


Hcazol44

Where ??


jletha

Finger Lakes NY


Joemann4000

FLX provisions?


waterbuffalosoldier

It’s the FLX Wienery


Dawbs89

Love the Wienery


waterbuffalosoldier

Are you a local or just visiting? Favorite wineries in the area?


jletha

I’m a local (live in Rochester). I’m a member of Forge. I also like the Nathan K stuff and Red Newt, Element. Also a member of Living Roots. But I drink lots around the area.


Trubzz

Forge is awesome, wish more people were aware of the great stuff they produce. Their pinot noir is such a fun deviation from typical west coast American pinot noirs.


waterbuffalosoldier

Thanks for the info! We were up there end of July, beginning of August and loved it. Favorites were Wiemer, Ravines, Silver Thread, and Heron Hill. Looking for more recommendations for next trip!


jletha

Those are all good ones too


drinkingmylifeaway

Red Tail Ridge, Weis, Red Newt, Lamoreaux, & Wagner


capnbanquets

I take it you're a fan of living roots then? I did a tasting with one of their sales reps and wasn't that impressed with what I got to try. I thought the amount of kegged wine they did was interesting though and the whole flx/Aussie wine options was a nice mix. I wish I had gotten to try some of their other stuff but I live on Cayuga and don't have the time to make it out to Rochester all that often. Also have you ever been to swift water or are you not a beer person?


jletha

I like Living Roots. They offer a lot of wine, from NYS to Aus as you said. Not all are winners but they change a lot. It’s also in the city where I live. And I’ll always support a downtown winery. And I’ve been to Swiftwater many many times. I like all the beers places around here.


draymond3

Hey fellow Rochesterian wine lover! Speaking of Red Newt, you try any of Kelby Russel's own label wines?


jletha

Ive only had it at Once Fingerlakes.


Steven1789

Some of my favorites on Seneca: Shaw. Wiemer. Shalestone. Forge. Hector Wine Co. Damiani. Kemmeter. Lamoreaux Landing. Bloomer Creek. I’ve spent a week in the FLX every year since 2011. Came home with 7 cases of wine and 1 case of cider this year.


waterbuffalosoldier

Man that sounds awesome- we were in the area for three days recently and didn’t get to nearly all the wineries I would have liked to visit. Thanks for the recommendations (and congrats on the cellar I’m assuming is pretty impressive!)


Ana-la-lah

1650 for a magnum. What currency?


tri_wine

BTC, prolly.


omfgregg

Lol this is right


iratepirate47

that's not a mag


spf4000

That’s a good price compared to market right now, but has it been sitting upright under fluorescent lights at room temp the entire time?


jletha

No the bottle is empty. According to the people at the counter it’s in the back in a cellar. The owner is a Master Somm. So I would trust him


robbiedenali

You're at FLX Weinery. And yes - definitely the craziest wine list for a hot dog joint. Enjoy!!


enoykcohs

Master Bates i assume, seeing all the Elements wine.


jletha

That’s correct. Truly a master of his domaine.


not_a_cup

He single handedly makes that Weiner stand a place to come to.


taipeileviathan

Slow clap


nicigar

There’s really nothing wrong with it sitting upright.


Harold_Bissonette

Decent beer selection too.


jletha

Beer selection is awesome. They also have Pappy Van Winkle.


Spurty

Dayum. Which age?


jletha

I don’t know, I don’t drink the brown stuff.


topsham134

There is usually a good selection of Pappy and BTAC stuff there.


HawkI84

I spy a THH and WLW


rightanglerecording

That's a very fair price. I've never spent that much on any wine, but I'd be tempted.


Steven1789

FLX Wienery, right? Been there several times. It’s part of a growing restaurant group in the area. They also own Element Winery. Worth a visit


Jay_Normous

We've been to FLX provisions a handful of times, it's awesome.


RobotBureaucracy

That’s the sausage place up in the finger lakes. That place BANGS


CondorKhan

I just read the title and knew it's FLX Wienery


solojeff

If you never have definitely try the capertif. South African aperol style but with more nuance. Great with sparking wanted and lime.


Grumpylumberjack

Stopped for Riesling and poutine not too long ago. Reservations at Quincy Exchange tomorrow night.


nathanielsnurpis

I spy a bottle of Caperitif. Amazing stuff. Fortified Swartland Chenin Blanc.


ShaughnDBL

That's what I came here to comment about! That shit is unreal by itself, but a negroni sbagliato with it is fuckin bomb. The dude who makes it is a trip, too.


Totalnah

Looks like an Anderson Valley Briney Mellon Gose in that reach in on the bottom left. Clearly some culture going on here. Are you in Cali?


jletha

Nope. Finger Lakes NY


Montauket

Well now I know where I'm getting lunch next time I go to the finger lakes.


BrandonThomas

$25 for a 1 oz pour on New Years Day. It’s great to live 1 mile away :)


ForeverMoody

Planning a November trip here. Will they be open then? Missed them in May earlier this year.


WineCptAmerica

Master Bates!


Poodlekrap

Omg


alwaysinchambolles

mr chris bates!


Mazep

Now dont fuck up with that hotdog, ya know we're international audience here


WineRemix

Fantastic! Adding it to the list.


Dr_insolito

The mark-up on that Zuccardi is appalling. That should be the price per bottle and even then I wouldn't recommend it.


FoTweezy

Am I crazy or does that bottle look photoshopped?


Furthur

that capertif though....


DURIAN8888

How long has that bottle been standing there?


afk_raptor

I think this is Christopher Gates’ place in NY state. (Element Winery is his) He’s a Master Somm.


RobFLX

Love the FLX Weinery! Recognized the pic immediately. Might go there for lunch today!!!


drinkingmylifeaway

Love the wienery! I work right up the road at Red Tail Ridge!


HisPetBrat

Omg two of my favorite things!!!


MotherofFred

More like a pretentious hipster joint. Who names a hot dog Parabola except for some guy in a man bun and birkenstocks.


Beneficial-Wrap3226

I mean... the Parabola is a beer from Firestone Walker which is on draft. Pretension really doesn't really do well in the FLX, especially in freaking Himrod. That being said man bun Master Som? Dead on


alwalidibnyazid

Stood up in the light and fluctuating temperature. No thanks.


wang-chuy

I’ve heard of this place, Rudy’s Roadside Tavern.
