Noted Finger Lakes vineyard placed in land trust to protect it from development

January 09, 2014

The Finger Lakes Land Trust announced today it has purchased what is known as a "conservation easement" on the property. That means the property can remain in private hands, but must remain a vineyard even if sold. The easement also establishes permanent environmental protections on land surrounding a stream and gorge on the property's northern edge.
