Can’t stop, won’t stop

Kendall has been a leading figure in New York’s Finger Lakes wine region since he launched his namesake brand in 2011. Its lineup of small-lot, spontaneously fermented Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir gained attention quickly from top New York City sommeliers. In 2016, the Kendall family took over Hickory Hollow, which offers an array of quality, well-priced wines alongside Kendall’s other brand bottlings. As if that isn’t enough, Kendall has recently joined up with Pascaline Lepeltier, MS, a Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 alum, to create Chëpìka. The brand explores New York’s native grape winemaking history through pét-nat bottlings of organic Catawba and Delaware grapes.
