New York State Wine Festival
August 12 - August 13$10 - $25
Held on the grounds of the New York Wine & Culinary Center in Canandaigua, the New York State Wine Festival is a two-day celebration of all of the great wines New York has to offer. Known as the Finger Lakes Riesling Festival until 2017, the event has expanded to focus on the many varietals produced in the state.
Throughout the weekend, select vendors will be pairing signature foods to complement the wine. The culinary center will offer hands-on cooking classes and educational seminars. Other activities include cheese tastings, food and wine demonstrations from various chefs…you can even stomp some grapes!
New to the festival this year is the Market Place, with products for purchase from a variety of NY farm-market vendors. There will also be live music both days at the Lounge & Listen area.
The wine festival continues to serve as a critical fundraiser for both the Canandaigua Family YMCA and the New York Wine & Culinary Center.
