About The Event
Join Heathen Wine Tours on an intimate, secluded, and groundbreaking wine and culinary tour to one of the greatest and misunderstood wine regions in the world. That's right, THE WORLD!!!! The Finger Lakes in upstate New York has marked their place in the culinary and wine world with awesome riesling, pinot noir, cabernet franc, sparkling wines, cheese, local artisans and world class chefs. If you don't know the significance of the Finger Lakes, your palate is ashamed of you!!!
Your week will include visits to more than seven wineries, with private chef's dinners, and cheese and wine pairings with a hands-on cheese-making course. Oh and since we're around the lakes I guess we should take over our own private bed and breakfast on Seneca Lake.
You'll enjoy the following!
A tasting with James Beard-nominated winemaker Ms. Nancy Irelan of Red Tail Ridge winery, with a private porchetta dinner. We'll also make our own ricotta cheese for our salad course, all paired with Nancy's award-winning wines and personality. We'll hit Hearts & Hands for a sparkling wine riddling class in the cellar, followed by dinner at local favorite, Inns of Aurora.
We'll meet Johannes Kemmeter of Kemmeter Winery to try his dry rieslings, paired with his wife's homemade dumplings which we'll enjoy near the lake for lunch. Dinner at Dano’s, an Austrian-style restaurant paired with Austrian wines. Cheese tasting with Lively Run dairy, chocolate making class with Rue Claire chocolatiers and meet her honey bees. Other wineries will include Ravines, Element, Empire, Red Newt, and more to come.
The best thing is the price is all-inclusive, so all you have to do is get to the bed and breakfast and we'll handle the rest.
