Upstate New York Midweek Getaway: Winemaker Wednesdays

February 14th, 2013 by Katie Pate

Food service is one of the largest employers in the nation and New York is no exception. That’s why we think Winemaker Wednesdays are great for servers, bartenders, sommeliers and restaurant managers to attend. Many people working in restaurants have to work on the weekends. Winemaker Wednesdays along the Seneca wine trail is a great way for you and your friends in food service to have your own Upstate NY getaway – midweek.

Winemaker Wednesdays are for the type of person that not only loves to drink wine, but adores learning about it, talking to people about it and experiencing it. Every Winemaker Wednesday takes place on the second Wednesday of the given month. This is a limited series of unique, custom winery experiences conceived for passionate, curious fans of wine, winemaking and all that goes into that.

Each winery has crafted some kind of unique event or activity for these days. Programs may change from one Wednesday to the next. It is necessary for you to call the winery and make an appointment for these, and at that time you can confirm their offering. Many wineries commit one or two members of their senior leadership (owner and/or winemaker or vineyard manager, oftentimes) to conduct the program, and typically those individuals have  a slew of other tasks and chores they should be doing, and appointments enable them to manage their time. Some of these offerings have fees associated with them, most do not. Most have limited time constraints, some do not. Check the Seneca Wine trail website for more information, or call 877-536-2717 during regular business hours.

Let our Bed and Breakfast be your Base Camp for an Upstate Getaway

Our bed and breakfast is located 20 minutes from the Seneca Wine Trail. We can arrange a wine tour so you can wine taste safely with a designated driver. We look forward to being your hosts!

That most important of holidays for couples all over America is fast approaching. Have you made plans for something special with your partner? If not, we still have rooms available at our upstate NY bed and breakfast for Valentine’s day weekend. In fact, all of our rooms are open for a Friday night arrival – make the most of the holiday and book two nights with us!

Stay in the Elegance Room, with a roaring fireplace, 40″ HDTV and luxuriant queen-size bed. The bathroom has a multi-head spa shower. We offer in-room breakfast as well, which you can enjoy in front of the  windows in plush bathrobes.

Or, the Serenity suite is also available. Instead of a fireplace, we have a built-in waterfall apparatus, which is where this room gets it’s name. A king-size bed does not feel over-sized in this spacious room, which provides plenty of privacy.

Lastly, the Chamber Suite is also available. This room has a lovely queen size bed with wrought iron frame and a marble shower. At 12′ by 17′, it is just the right size for a couple to cozy up together!

Romantic Spaces at the Inn

We have a lovely courtyard where, should the weather allow, we  will stoke the outdoor fire pit so you can cuddle together and meditate on the dancing flames while enjoying some wine or a hot beverage. Too cold to be outside? We have a large parlor with a fireplace that you can appreciate.

Interested in New York Wine?

We are open year-round and close to the Finger Lakes Seneca and Cayuga. These lakes are very active during the summertime, but even in the winter, their beauty is mesmerizing. In addition, the many wineries in this area make it a great place to visit, even when its chilly. We can recommend a wine tasting tour with your own designated driver. Just call us for the details.

We hope to see you soon!
