Editor’s Note: Mikhail Lipyanskiy has started doing some writing for me here on the site – in fact, he’s heading to the Finger Lakes for a few days later this week to work on another tasting report – but what first motivated me to recruit Mikhail to the site was his photography. Here we have a series of shots he took on a recent North Fork jaunt with friends.
