Uncork some Finger Lakes liquid sunshine
What happens when you mix the ingredients of our great region? The water, climate and myriad things that grow here?
You get some of the finest wines and microbrews in the country.
If our region is known for anything, it is probably the excellence of our Rieslings. The experts agree that Finger Lakes Rieslings are truly world class. And you can experience them for yourself in the Wine Garden.
The area’s top wineries will be on hand, offering samples of their award-winning Rieslings, and you can purchase Rieslings by the bottle for off-site consumption. You’ll also be able to enjoy live entertainment throughout the weekend in this adults-only venue.
Space is still available in the Wine Garden, but going fast. If you would like to participate in the Finger Lakes Riesling Festival, click here.

Perhaps not all the ingredients grow right in our region, but an industry is growing. By leaps and bounds. Our region is home to some of the great up-and-coming breweries in the country. Wegmans will be hosting the New York State Craft Beer Tent, located in the Wine Garden. It’s an opportunity to appreciate that, while wine has 2 ingredients, beer has 4. And they can yield a huge variety of styles. If you would like to participate in the Finger Lakes Riesling Festival, click here.
