Fabulous food • Delicious wine • Live entertainment • Incredible auction items
The Seneca Lake Wine Trail is excited to debut its first-ever Seneca Lake Wine & Experience Auction, including two evenings of special events at the elegant Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the New York State Children’s Alliance (NYSCA).
The in-person events will feature live and silent auctions, tastings of some of the region’s most coveted wines, delicious food, and live entertainment. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on VIP winery experiences, wine gift baskets, harvest packages, overnight stays at member wineries, and much more. Aside from the great food, wine, entertainment, and auction opportunities, you may even find yourself hobnobbing with winemakers and winery owners!
The lodging package offers the best deal: double occupancy for two nights at the luxurious Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, plus tickets to both evening events for two people. If you don’t want to stay overnight, there are event-only tickets available, and if you can’t attend in person, you can always bid in the online auction.
Gather your friends and family, get your bidding paddle ready, and make it a weekend to remember!
