Cayuga Lake Wine Trail's Holiday Event

Finger Lakes Region, NY -- "Christmas time is the most magical time of the year says Cathy Millspaugh, the Executive Director of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, and what better way to celebrate than to experience our Holiday event. This year's event runs two weekends, November 21st through the 23rd or December 5th through the 7th. Collect this year's themed ornaments, acrylic wine bottles. I love these ornaments because they're a reminder of your favorite wines, like MistleToe Magic from Lucas, Sheldrake Point's Dry Rose and our newest winery to the trail, Toro Run's Gruner Veltliner. You may want two single tickets instead of a couple to be able to give the perfect Christmas present."

At the event receive a souvenir wine glass, grapevine wreath, the wine bottle ornament from each of the seventeen wineries, wine and food pairings plus holiday recipes. Unique to our trail we offer to our Holiday customers our event weekend shoppers' card where you can save $5.00 off a $35.00 wine purchase at each winery to help with those wine gift purchases.

Start your event weekend plans early by visiting Montezuma, Long Point, King Ferry and Six Mile Creek wineries on the Friday of the event. On Saturday mornings at 9:00am visit King Ferry and Long Point Wineries for their Early Bird Opening and then travel along the trail to visit the rest of the seventeen wineries on Saturday and Sunday.

At Montezuma Winery their wine bottle ornament is their Fat Frog Red, fitting for them because they'll be serving samples of their Fat Frog Eyed Fiesta. Swedish Hill Winery is offering Lasagna Soup and Buttonwood Grove Winery is presenting their Rosemary and Garlic Infused Oven Roasted Almonds.

Another great added feature to our events is our Special Event Packages which include a one or two night stay, transportation to the wineries on Saturday only and tickets to the event. Accommodation packages are featured from these great hotels and inns: Country Inn & Suites, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites and LaTourelle Inn in Ithaca; Microtel Inn, Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn in Seneca Falls/ Waterloo, The Gould Hotel, Van Cleef Bed & Breakfast; Inn at the Finger Lakes, Hilton Garden Inn and the Holiday Inn in Auburn. Even if you don't need an overnight stay, transportation packages are available. Check out our package page located on our home page at for more details.

Participants who turn in their ticket at the end of the event are eligible to win one of our four Grand Prizes: our Cayuga Lake Wine Trail Season Pass for 2015, a one night stay at these great hotels and inns, Holiday Inn in Auburn and LaTourelle in Ithaca and from S&S Limousine a $100.00 gift certificate.
