Watkins Glen, NY – Christmas came early on Seneca Lake, with the announcement from the Seneca Lake Wine Trail that they are bringing back one of their most popular wine and food pairing events in 2022: Chocolate and Wine Weekend!

Chocolate and Wine Weekend takes place February 4-6, 2022. This self-guided tour will take ticketholders to 16 participating wineries along Seneca Lake. Each will feature a wine of their choice paired with a delicious dish that has chocolate as a key ingredient.

These mouthwatering dishes will be served with carefully selected wines, to showcase both the wine and the food. This is a great opportunity to learn about the art of pairing wine and food.
