Enjoy the holiday season with a weekend of fun and relaxation. 2016 is our 25th annual Deck the Halls Weekend! With the exception of Miles Wine Cellars, all our member wineries will be participating in this event; see a full list farther below.

Friday, 1-5 p.m., Saturday & Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.You can go any one day, or come out for the whole 2-1/2 days!

$70 per couple's designated driver ticket (one tasting wine/one non-taster)
$58 per single's ticket (admits 1 person tasting wine)
$48 per single's designated driver ticket (one non-taster)
EACH PERSON receives a food and wine pairing at each participating winery. With the recipe book you will be able repeat the delectable wine/food combinations at home, introducing your friends and family to the pairings you most enjoyed! Of course if you are the designated driver, you should be offered an alternative non-alcoholic beverage and we thank you!
Tickets purchased are not refundable, exchangeable or changeable and the winery you chose to start at when purchasing your tickets cannot be altered. Seneca Lake Wine Trail events are never cancelled.Tickets do not include lodging or transportation.
Each attendee will enjoy a complimentary sample of the dish served by the winery, paired with about 3 different modest samples of wine intended to complement that dish best. With so many wineries participating in our events, attendees oftentimes visit many wineries in a day, therefore entire flights of wine samples are not served by each winery during the event. Certainly if you're especially enthusiastic about the samples you enjoyed initially, you will be permitted to purchase an entire flight.
Ticket orders will be securely processed by our partner site Eventbrite. Eventbrite will send you a confirmation email immediately after you've completed the transaction, but physical tickets will not be mailed to you.
You must start at your chosen starting winery to get checked in and pick up the actual card stock ticket. Participating wineries will require that you have your actual cardstock ticket before you can begin enjoying this event. Printouts of the ticket purchase confirmation email do not qualify as tickets.
Furthermore, because of this, it is even more important that groups of attendees purchase their tickets on one order, to guarantee that all attendees will have the exact same starting winery. Lastly, bundles of tickets can only be picked up by the person who purchased them. If you have any questions about our e-ticketing system, please call the office during regular business hours at 877-536-2717.
Sometimes our events sell out, so you should purchase your tickets well in advance of the event itself. For those events that do not sell out, we stop selling tickets in advance by 1:00 p.m. EST the Wednesday before the event weekend. After that, for events that are not sold out, tickets will be available to purchase at a few designated wineries, with an additional charge of $5 per ticket.
Important group size changes: Groups of 19 or fewer people can attend the event together. Because this event is so large and to help give all our attendees a great experience, groups of 20 or more people are no longer accepted for either weekend of Deck the Halls.
|Our 2016 co-sponsor for both Deck the Halls Weekend events, for the eighth consecutive year, is Elmira New York's very own Christmas House!
