Sunday, June 22, at 1:00 and 3:30 - that's the info for our next Vertical Tasting. This one will feature several vintages of Gewurztraminer. Why taste older vintages, you might ask? We think one way to test the quality of a wine is its ability to age, and this is a unique opportunity to participate in our quality assessment. Come and join the fun - it is truly a memorable experience.

Make your reservations now . $20 per person, 1/2 price to Wine Club and Case Club members and free to Barrel Owners*. The price includes the wine, history and information about the wine, vineyards, and the Finger Lakes, and some light food from Dano's. Those of you who have joined us for previous verticals know that the food and wine pairing experience is a highlight of the experience, and we are already researching these options.
