Evan Dawson, who is is writing a book about the winemakers of the Finger Lakes, first became interested in Finger Lakes wine on his first trip to the region with his wife-to-be Morgan, whom he met as a student at Ohio University. Morgan is a Penn Yan native; Evan was born in Cleveland but has family
in Jamestown, Chautauqua and Buffalo, so the region has always felt
like home.

He’ll be writing about a variety of things on LENNDEVOURS, including insights from and stories about the people behind the wines. He’ll also cover news items on occasion, which is what he does when he’s not writing about wine. Evan is a morning news anchor at WHAM-TV and CW-16 in Rochester, where he also serves as a political correspondent with a focus on state and federal issues.

Morgan will occasionally offer her talents as a photographer on these pages as well. She operates Morgan Dawson Photography out of their East Rochester home.
