Ticket Prices

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.

pasta wine small 2015Each 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 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 policies:  Groups of 19 or fewer people can attend the event together without having to make appointments at the wineries.  However groups of 20 and up to 40 people will be accepted only if routed by the Trail office and are limited.  All large groups must be booked 60 days prior to and event weekend.  Few large groups are permitted and we reserve the right to limit the number of large groups and motor coaches purchasing tickets to our events to four (4).  Please call Glenda Stermer-Simpson toll-free to inquire about large group event details at 877-536-2717.

Of course we, the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, believe this is a terrific event... But don't take just our word for it! Below are just a few of our many testimonials from past attendees of this annual event.

"One of our favorite events is Deck the halls. Our favorite memory was at Glenora when a group of young Mrs. Clauses got out of there limo and started dancing. They even got the driver involved. We also enjoyed the Pasta and Wine weekend. Lots of food and great wine and met many new friends."

"My wife, Dani and I participated in our first Seneca Lake Wine Trail event this past January, Pasta & Wine. We were joined by friends Kevin and Carolyn from Rochester. I left work early Friday so we could hit the trail by 1:00 p.m. We enjoyed the fact that the wineries weren't crowded, and visited 11 wineries that afternoon. We thought the pasta dishes were awesome, and gladly collected recipes from each winery. Dani has actually prepared a couple of them since then, and they are delicious. We enjoyed the fact that most of the wineries invited us to taste wines in addition to the designated pairings with the pasta. This led to our purchasing about a case and a half of wine during our afternoon adventure. One of our unique memories from this event was getting stuck in the snow at one of the wineries. It was nothing 3 people pushing and one driving couldn't handle, but makes a great topic of conversation. Thank you for organizing such a wonderful event!"
