Spring Wine & Cheese Weekend

Spring Wine and Cheese Weekend is sponsored by our friends at McCadam Cheese, and Cabot Cheese, is an incredibly popular event, combining the classic tastes of wine and cheese into one delectable weekend. It is a self-guided tour around beautiful Seneca Lake and a chance to visit over 30 unique wineries. You start this event by picking up your gift item at your assigned starting winery and receive your first sampling of a new wine release or perhaps a barrel wine sample!

This weekend event, like all our wine and food pairing events, is a great opportunity for people to experience a vast array of food/wine combinations. Wine is rarely consumed alone, and what specific food you eat with a specific wine greatly impacts the tastiness of each. So this weekend is a terrific chance for you to sample an incredible variety of combinations and, when you find a wine/food pair that really lights up your palate, you can buy a few bottles of the wine for later, buy the McCadam cheese from your local grocery store, then prepare the food at home using the recipe book, and introduce your friends and family to that particularly delightful combination.

Click on the "Tickets" link above, then click on "Event Tickets" to purchase tickets to his event through our partner Eventbrite.

Ticket orders will be processed by our partner site Eventbrite. They will email you your e-tickets, which must be redeemed for your actual event tickets at your starting winery. You must start at your starting winery henceforth, because until you visit your starting winery, you will not have your actual 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.

Tickets purchased are not refundable, exchangeable or changeable. Seneca Lake Wine Trail events are never cancelled.

Our events oftentimes 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.

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

"One of our favorite memories was the cheese and wine tour in 2000 and Mr Wagner of Wagner Vineyard was scooping out a 96' Merlot out of the barrel. Even though it was a young wine it was very good and Mr. Wagner was very enthusiatic.

"My favorite memory was my first visit to Seneca Lake for Spring Wine and Cheese Weekend about 6 yrs ago. I made my first visit Hazlitt's winery and everyone was singing the Red Cat song and doing jello shots. It was so much fun that I have attended every Wine and Cheese weekend since. Cheryl"
