Yes, The Finger Lakes Are Known For Wine, But Grape Pies Are The Big Attraction

May 27, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Home bakers in the tiny Finger Lakes (N.Y.) town of Naples make thousands of concord grape pies each year, with the heaviest volume during the autumn Naples Grape Festival. The region is known for its wine – there are 120 wineries in the area – but concord grapes work best in pie making. Grape pie remains a best-seller – 10,000 are baked and sold each year – and comes either with a crumb crust or a floating crust. One local grape pie maker sells 3,000 to 5,000 pies in the fall from tents or at local stores through Thanksgiving.
