Seneca Lake Wine TrailEnjoy a safe, enjoyable day of delicious cheese-themed food paired with great wine

Watkins Glen, NY – The Seneca Lake Wine Trail is hosting Spring Wine and Cheese on Friday, April 16, 2021. This self-guided tour will take attendees to 6 participating wineries, with each featuring a wine of their choice paired with a delicious, cheese-themed dish for event attendees to enjoy.

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. The knowledgeable servers that staff member tasting rooms are eager to share their knowledge and to make wine approachable and fun!

Executive Director Brittany Gibson adds, “This event will look and feel quite different than our “usual” wine trail events, but we promise that the core hasn’t changed – fantastic wine, delicious food, in a friendly, low-key setting. Our wineries have really gone the extra mile to be able to host an event of any kind and we hope visitors will make a weekend of it. Spend the day at the event wineries on Friday and use the rest of the weekend to visit the many other wineries along the Trail.”
