LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commending and congratulating the New York State
businesses whose outstanding products are being served at the  Presiden-
tial Inaugural Luncheon on January 21, 2013

WHEREAS,  New  York  State takes just pride in each and every product it
produces or grows; and
  WHEREAS, This year, New York State is particularly proud  that  Tierce
2010  Finger Lakes' Dry Riesling and Rochester's Seaway Trail Honey will
be served at the Presidential Inaugural Luncheon on  January  21,  2013;
and
  WHEREAS,  The  Tierce  Riesling  will  be  served along with the first
course, while the honey will be served during  the  third  course  which
includes a Hudson Valley apple pie with sour cream ice cream, aged ched-
dar and the Seaway Trail honey; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Dry  Riesling is a special example of New York's finest
wines because it is made from the  superb  Finger  Lakes  2010  Riesling
vintage produced among three Upstate New York vineyards; and
  WHEREAS,  The  three vineyards from the Finger Lakes Region which have
collaborated to produce the 2010 Tierce are Anthony Road Winery and  Fox
Run Vineyards, both from Yates County and Red Newt Cellars from Schuyler
County; and
  WHEREAS,  New York State has a long tradition of producing some of the
finest honey in the nation; the choice of Seaway Trail Honey will  be  a
boon  for  New York's honey industry, which is a significant part of the
agricultural economy in Upstate New York, supporting thousands of  jobs;
and
  WHEREAS, Serving Tierce 2010 Finger Lakes Dry Riesling wine and Seaway
Trail  Honey  at the Inaugural Luncheon shines a spotlight on two of New
York's biggest, and most impressive, agricultural industries; and
  WHEREAS, Another New York wine, a 2009 Merlot from Bedell  Cellars  of
North Fork, Long Island, will also be served with the second course; and
  WHEREAS,  President  Obama, Vice President Biden, members of Congress,
the Supreme Court and the Cabinet will all get a  taste  of  New  York's
finest  wines  with the Tierce 2010 Finger Lakes Dry Riesling, which has
won awards and accolades  around  the  world,  and  the  Bedell  Cellars
Merlot, and of the delicious New York honey; and
  WHEREAS,  New  York  State  is  pleased  to  be able to showcase these
fantastic New York products and companies  for  the  esteemed  Inaugural
Luncheon attendees; and
  WHEREAS,  In  addition to the Dry Riesling, the Merlot, and the Seaway
Trail Honey, the luncheon menu will also feature a number of  other  New
York  products,  including  the  third course, a Hudson Valley apple pie
with sour cream ice cream, aged cheddar cheese, and the honey; and
  WHEREAS, The apples for the apple pie are from Golden Harvest Orchards
in Valatie, Columbia County; the Cooperstown Cheese Company, in  Otsego,
New  York,  is  supplying the cheese and Crown Maple Syrup from Dutchess
County will also be incorporated in the dessert course; now,  therefore,
be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend and congratulate the New York State businesses whose outstanding
products are being served at  the  Presidential  Inaugural  Luncheon  on
January 21, 2013; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted  with  great  pride  to  the companies which produced the Finger
Lakes' Dry Riesling, the Bedell Cellars Merlot,  and  the  Seaway  Trail
