There is no better time to dine in the Finger Lakes. Someone said, we are the tree the Big Apple grows on. A plethora of fresh vegetables, meats and dairy are used during this incredibly fresh and bountiful time. Farm-to-table refers to a movement where food is produced locally and delivered to you, in some cases the same day. Our chef literally works with producers across the street from our vineyard and around the region. Together with the freshness of the season and his very creative culinary skills and the wine from this terroir this is a wine dinner not to miss. It is so good we have scheduled two dates. Sept 20 and Oct 18. This five course dinner will be paired beautifully with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars. Please purchase your tickets on line to reserve your spot.
