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.

Smoke--it’s invisible yet can put us in a trance-like state. Remember the old cartoons that showed a cartoon character in the air following its nose to the smoke aroma from a nearby campfire? There are restaurants that evolve from making smoked foods, and almost any food can be smoked. So leave the decision to our chef who will smoke his own meats, fish, vegetables and even cheese. Bring your smoking jackets. Each course will be paired with premium Knapp Winery, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars wines. $74.90 per person includes tax and gratuity.
