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.

Bacon Lovers! This is your party! Bacon rules and will dominate! How many ways can you have bacon? Think pork bellies, apple wood smoked bacon, pancetta, maybe even bacon peanut butter semi-freddo. Each course will be wrapped in a form of bacon that will fulfill the addiction. 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.
