The Seneca Lake Wine Trail invites you to be a part of a new tasting event on Saturday, May 2, 2020. Flights and Bites is an experience designed for those who are looking to truly immerse themselves in the wine, food, and people who represent Seneca Lake. If you love red carpet treatment, if you love great wine and great food – this event is for you!
How it works
Your ticket will gain you entry to one seating each at three different wineries – Winery A at 10am, Winery B at 1pm, and Winery C at 4pm. You will purchase a ticket to one grouping based upon the starting winery. Here is how:
- Please scroll down to the “Showclix” section of this page (with the purple band) to view available groupings. These groups are labeled “Group A”, “Group B”, and so on.
- Once you know which group you want to attend, select that group’s starting winery from the dropdown menu in the top right corner of the “Showclix” section of the page.
- Click the “Get Tickets” button and proceed from there.
You must visit the wineries in the order you selected when you placed your order. Your schedule will be listed in your email receipt, and also printed on your ticket, which you’ll pick up at your starting winery the day of the event.
If you have any questions at all about how to choose a starting or anything related to purchasing tickets, please don’t hesitate to give us a call: 877-536-2717 during regular business hours.

What to expect
At each stop you’ll be welcomed to a seated, reserved tasting area. You and a small group (no more than 20 people per seating) of fellow wine enthusiasts will be treated to three wine and food pairings, featuring tapas-style dishes prepared by a local chef thoughtfully paired with only the best wines produced by our participating wineries. Beyond the delicious food and wine, you’ll gain the insight of a knowledgeable and friendly wine server, who will guide you through the tasting. This experience is designed to be interactive. Feel free to ask questions and express your thoughts during the pairings. Our friendly winery owners and team members are here to help you learn more about the wines being produced around Seneca Lake, and what makes our wines so special.
Each seating/tasting will take about an hour. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes early to each winery to ensure that your tasting begins on time. We encourage you to explore the Seneca Lake Wine Trail between your event tastings if there’s time, but please note that only the wineries listed are participating in this event and you must attend the event tastings in the order designated by your ticket. Gather your wine loving friends and make it a great day!
