Spring time gives us plenty of good reasons to getaway for a weekend and attend an event at either Cayuga Wine Trail’s Wine & Herb Festival or Seneca Lake Wine Trail’s Spring Wine & Cheese Weekend. The waterfalls are flowing and the trees are beginning to bud. The landscape is coming alive after a long winter. Enjoy a leisurely drive up the lakes as you take in the beautiful scenery between vineyards. With the variety of wines available and numerous wineries to choose from, discovering your favorite wine is like going on a treasure hunt. Bring friends along and share the fun or make some new friends along the wine trail.
Seneca Lake Wine Trail’s Spring Wine & Cheese Weekend is being held from Friday, April 29th, at 1:00pm - Sunday, May 1st, 5:00pm. This popular event, sponsored by Cabot Cheese and Macadam Cheese, pairs Finger Lakes wines with a taste of delightful treats prepared using a variety of cheese. This is your chance to visit over 30 wineries and take home a recipe book featuring those tasty treats. Visit the Seneca Lake Wine Trail website for ticket information.
It’s time for the Cayuga Wine Trail’s 19th Annual Wine & Herb Festival, running two weekends; April 29th-May 1st and again on May 6th -8th. What a great way to kick-start your gardens and restock your wine cellars. Participants will sample wines along with herb-infused cuisine at 16 wineries and take home an herb or veggie plant from each winery along with recipes and a plant carrier. Save money by purchasing your tickets in advance at the Cayuga Wine Trail website or any Wegman’s store.
Be sure to check out The Halsey House Bed and Breakfast’s availability calendar for your upcoming stay during these Finger Lakes wine tasting events. And, if you are traveling with friends or family, our vacation rental Clarke’s Cottage on Hidden Pond has a great location right between the two lakes and can accommodate up to ten people in plush comfort. Enjoy your stay and the Vino!
