Preferred Pairings, January 25, February 22 or March 22, 2014

FLCT Logo color-backgroundThis is the Seneca Lake Wine Trail's newest series of more intimate, smaller wine and food pairing events. Partnering with the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail, Preferred Pairings are a series of three, one day events the fourth Saturday of each month in the first quarter of 2014. Each participating winery will be matched up with a creamery, offering ticketed attendees 3-4 delicious pairings of regional cheese paired with our members' wines.This series of events are co-sponsored by the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail.  Each of these three event dates are individually ticketed. Tickets purchased in advance are $20 per person.

In some cases a creamery may offer one cheese, paired against 3-4 different wines to see which pairing best appeals to your palette. At other locations, the creamery might present 3-4 different cheeses, paired with 3-4 different wines. Creameries will also be providing a brief presentation about their farm and product(s) at 10:30am, shortly after the event has begun. Therefore it is best that you select your starting winery principally based on which creamery you would like to learn more about.

Times

Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

$20 per person 

Tickets do not include lodging or transportation. 

Ticket orders will be securely processed by our partner site Eventbrite. You must start at your starting winery, because until you visit your chosen starting winery, you will not have your actual tickets. The document emailed to you by Eventbrite does not qualify as your ticket and wineries will require that you have your actual cardstock ticket before you can begin enjoying this event. 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.

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.

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 tickets will be available to purchase at a few designated wineries, with an additional charge of $5 per ticket.

Important group size changes for 2014:  Groups of 19 or fewer people can attend the event together without having to make appointments at the wineries. Larger groups are not permitted.
