Spring Wine and Cheese
April 14 - April 16$80
Sponsored by Cabot Creamery Cooperative
During Spring Wine & Cheese Weekend, enjoy a self-guided tour around the beautiful Seneca Lake Wine Trail while exploring delicious pairings of local wines with a variety of cheese-themed dishes. Our events often sell out, well in advance, so get your tickets early to avoid disappointment!
Due to the size of these events, wineries are not able to accommodate food allergies and restrictions. Please review the recipe book before purchasing your tickets.
Choosing a Starting Winery & Getting Your Tickets
When you purchase tickets, you will do so by selecting a starting winery. You must begin at your starting winery because that is where you’ll pick up your event tickets. Once your tickets are purchased, your starting winery cannot be change. The person whose name is on the order must be present to pick up tickets and will show a government-issued photo ID to claim their tickets.
Group Size Maximum
The group size maximum for our Wine Trail events is 6 people and that figure is firm. 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 respect the event guidelines and winery staff.
Ticket Pricing & Details
Wine Tasting Ticket – $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. At each participating winery, wine tasting ticketholders enjoy a sample of food (using a cheese-inspired recipe) along with a wine to complement the dish, plus an additional three samples of wine. If you do the math, that’s less than $5 per winery visit!
Designated Driver Ticket – $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.
