Chocolate & Wine

February 2 - February 4


Join us on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail for Chocolate & Wine: February 2-4, 2024!  Enjoy a self-guided tour around the beautiful Seneca Lake Wine Trail while exploring delicious pairings of local wines with foods featuring chocolate as a key ingredient. Since this is a chocolate-themed event, you can expect to sample a lot of desserts and sweeter style foods, but there are usually at least a couple of savory foods along the way, too! Often our events sell out well in advance, so get your tickets early to avoid disappointment!

Preview the Event Recipes

2024 Chocolate and Wine Recipe Book

We strongly encourage you to preview the recipes in advance, so you know what to expect, especially if you have food allergies or dietary restrictions. Due to the volume of food prepared, wineries cannot accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions during Wine Trail event weekends.


Advance ticket sales have ended. There are still 78 single tickets available for this event and you can purchase them at the following wineries.

Please call the winery where you’d like to purchase your ticket to ensure availability, and ask them to hold it for you.

Group Size Maximum

The group size maximum for our Wine Trail events is 6 people. Please do not travel in groups of more than 6 people. If you disregard this guideline, you can be turned away from participating wineries and have your event tickets revoked. Please help us make this experience as enjoyable for all by respecting the event guidelines and winery staff.

Ticket Pricing & Details

Wine Tasting Tickets – $80 per person (includes taxes and fees)

Each wine tasting ticket holder will receive a wine glass and souvenir wine glass charm at their starting winery.  From there, at each participating winery, wine tasting ticketholders enjoy a sample of food (featuring a chocolate-inspired recipe) along with a wine to complement the dish, plus an additional three samples of wine. If you do the math, that’s only about $5 per winery visit!

Designated Driver Tickets – $25 per person  (includes taxes and fees)

We love our designated drivers! Instead of the wine glass and souvenir charm, DDs receive a souvenir insulated travel mug, plus the food samples and a non-alcoholic beverage at each participating winery along the way.

Refunds & Cancelation 

Seneca Lake Wine Trail event tickets are non-refundable. Our events are not canceled due to weather, unless the state closes roads around the Wine Trail. We do offer ticket insurance through a third party, which you can purchase at check-out. If you cannot attend due to weather in your area or ours, you can sell your tickets at face value via the event discussion tab on our Facebook page. Please see instructions pinned to the top of that discussion for more information.
