Finger Lakes and France

A Side-by-Side Wine Tasting Event!

Experience! The Finger Lakes and Silver Thread Vineyard Present:

A Special One-Day-Only Event!!

Sunday, June 26th

Choose the format that works best for you!!

Riesling and Cabernet Franc, while indigenous to Europe, have found much happiness in the Finger Lakes. Both of these grapes like cooler weather, and thrive in regions with lots of glacial soils, which is why they are currently the two most planted vinifera varieties in our region.  But do you know their French origins?

Join us as we compare Finger Lakes Riesling and Cabernet Franc from Silver Thread Vineyard with their counterparts from France’s regions of Alsace and Le Val de Loire. All these wines are driven by their exceptional fruit quality and minerality, and are pure examples of what is being produced in their regions.

We are offering this experience both in-person and virtually.  The in-person experience will be held at Silver Thread Vineyards at 2:00 pm and is limited to only 14 guests.  Each guest will receive a flight of the four wines, with a side pairing of two cheeses. Bottles of the wine will be available for purchase at the end of the presentation.

The virtual experience will begin at 4pm and is open to anyone who registers. Similarly to our other virtual experiences, households will receive one bottle of each wine in their kit that will be delivered directly to their homes.

Each event is expected to last around one hour. Choose the format that is best for you and join us for this very special, exclusive and fun event!  Can’t wait to see you!
