The Seneca Lake Wine Trail has partnered up with the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail, and developed a relatively new series of smaller, deluxe, one-day events in the first quarter of 2014. Each event is Saturday only, and enables attendees to visit several different member wineries, each of which will be hosting knowledgeable staff from their partner creamery, enabling attendees to enjoy 3-4 pairings of fantastic, local cheese paired with 3-4 samples of that winery's award-winning wines. In some instances, the individual creamery may specialize in one type of cheese, in which case you can determine which of the wines you think pairs best with that cheese. In other instances, the creamery may have 3-4 different cheeses paired up with 3-4 different wines. The creamery representative will make a brief presentation about their facility as the event starts up (which may influence which starting winery you select when purchasing your tickets), making this not only a predictably delicious event, but also an informative one. Each ticket is good only for one of the three events, and merely costs $20 per person. The Preferred Pairings will take place on January 25, February 22 and March 22 and will run from 10am-5pm each of those three days.
