Vineyard Restaurant Events

 

Once a month Knapp Vineyard Restaurant hosts an evening wine dinner complete with sparkling reception and a five course dinner.  Gene Pierce famously sabers the tops of Glenora Wine Cellars sparkling wine in the Knapp Barrel Room and serves it to our guests in frosted champagne glasses.  Our Executive Chef, John McNabb prepares a gourmet meal sourcing most of his ingredients from local farms which includes our very own estate grown vegetables in season. The menu for each month can take us from one end of the world to another or simply be fun and scrumptious.  The portions are generous and each course is served with a white and a red wine.  The wines served include Knapp premium wines, Glenora Wine Cellar Wines and vinifera wines from our friends at Zugibe Vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake.  It is a Finger Lakes experience not to miss.

September 2014
Beef, Barrel & Blues Fest
12:00 PM to 4:00 PM     Sat, Sep 13, 2014
Venue: Knapp Winery
Beef, Barrel and Blues is a fantastic combination for a great afternoon in Finger Lakes wine country. Build your own burger- an 8oz angus grilled burger and choose the cheese and gourmet trimmings yourself. Pair it with a sampling of our winemakers choice in a Knapp glass and you get to keep the glass too. All this in a rustic winery atmosphere with live blues music from the Blue Gills.
Farm to Table Part One
6:30 PM to 10:00 PM     Sat, Sep 20, 2014
Venue: Knapp Vineyard Restaurant

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 very same day. Our chef works with producers from across the street and around the region. Together with the freshness of the season and his very creative culinary skills plus the wine from this terroir, this is a wine dinner not to miss. Ever so popular, 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.
