According to a new study done by, Rochester, New York was named a Top 10 city in America for wine drinkers.

Rochester came in 6th overall, besting cities such as Los Angeles, Tampa Bay, Florida, Seattle, and San Fransico, and was the only New York State city to land in the Top 20.

Rochester received an overall grade of 33.4 out of 50.

The survey used certain metrology to grade each city. In this study, the goal of the website was to discover the best U.S. cities for wine lovers to visit based on ranking factors, such as the average cost of a bottle of red wine, dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine, and the number of vineyards/wineries and wine bars and the cost of getting a ride home from a taxi or ride-sharing service.

Rochester wasn't the only city in New York to be named in this study. The "Big Apple" New York City came in at #1 overall for the city with the most wine bars within city limits. Of course, that makes sense since New York City is also the largest city in the country based on population.
