ALBANY, N.Y. -- State regulators, farmers and orchard growers are heading to Albany for New York's wine and beer "summit."

The aim of the meeting is to boost wine production and craft brewers, in part to spur job growth.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Farm Bureau will lead the discussion of ways state government can help these old, but small, industries flourish in New York.

A similar summit on Greek-style yogurt resulting in the easing of some environmental protection restrictions on dairy farms.
