Join us for a lively and informative panel discussion and tasting focusing on Finger Lakes Syrah. The idea behind this classroom style gathering is to build on the excitement this unique varietal has garnered since its New York State Governor’s Cup win. We hope for you to come away with a better understanding and appreciation of the history of Syrah in the Finger Lakes and what the future looks like for this intriguing varietal.
Your educators for the evening will be Vinny Aliperti of Billsboro Winery, George Nosis of Atwater Vineyards, Justin Boyette of Hector Wine Company, Steve DiFrancesco of Glenora Wine Cellars, and Seth Thomas of Shalestone Vineyards.
The first flight will highlight the 2013 vintage, including Billsboro’s Governor’s Cup winner, and the second will be an assorted flight of Syrah across many vintages. We will provide cheese and charcuterie boards to accompany the tasting.
*For tonight only, guests will have the opportunity to purchase the 2013 Syrah, 2016 Governor’s Cup winner.
