In this special edition of Wine and Dime, I had the opportunity to speak with New York 23rd district candidate for Congress, Tracy Mitrano. We talked about financial issues, such as student load debt and medical expenses. Tracy shared with us her concern about these topics, and her plans to help New Yorkers in the 23rd District. And this wouldn't be "Wine and Dime" if we didn't talk about or favorite wines and the foods that we like paired with them... so we did that too.
It was a pleasure to speak with Tracy on a variety of topics and get a little insight on a few topics she is passionate about. As with any election, I like to look at all the candidates and decide who is a right fit for me and my family. I encourage everybody to take a look at all the candidates and decide on your own. When people ask me my political affiliation I often respond with, "I'm not a Democrat... I'm not a Republican... I'm an American"
New York 23rd District Democratic primary Candidate for Congress
"I'm running to put people first again by fighting to bring economic opportunity to NY-23. It's not about Republican or Democrat. It's about working and middle class people. It's about our children and grandchildren. It's about what we need, what we want, and what we deserve. It's about uniting around our common values and making NY-23's rural communities, towns, and cities a great place to live, work and raise a family."
Democratic Primary Election Day is
polls are open 12pm - 9pm
The Wine... In this case, the Wineries
Tracy has incredible knowledge of the local wineries, so much so, that we couldn't possibly list all the wines that were mentioned. So we'll list the wineries instead and you can go take a look at their selections!

John and Ann Martini moved to Anthony Road in 1973 at the urging of a friend that touted the joys of grape growing in the Finger Lakes. They loaded up 2 young children and left their home in Baltimore, where John worked for WR Grace to set up their farming life on the west side of Seneca Lake. Surprisingly neither Ann nor John had an agricultural background, unless you count John’s youthful summers at his grandparent’s farm in Melvin, Illinois. But together and with the help of family and friends they planted their first 5-acres, Foch, in the summer of 1973. The vineyard grew, to 30-acres, as did the Martini family, to 4 children, but it was quickly realized that an outside job was needed to support their endeavors. John joined the staff at the Cornell’s Experiment Station in Geneva and Ann took over the day to day operations and maintenance of both the household and the vineyard.
