Geneva Night Out Book Signing & Civil War Exhibit

June 5th, 2015

Sarah S. Thompson, author of Finger Lakes Wine Country, will sign copies of her book at the Geneva History Museum during Geneva Night Out on Friday, June 5 at 7:00 PM. The book is a comprehensive regional history of the wine industry with more than 200 images from the collections of area wineries, museums and archives. It traces the development of the industry from the first vineyards in the 1830s to the revolution of the past thirty years. Thompson looks at the success of early wineries in the late 19th-century, how Prohibition decimated this business in the early 20th, and how innovators transformed and resuscitated it at mid century, bringing about a Finger Lakes wine renaissance.

Sarah S. Thompson is a freelance writer living on Seneca Lake, where she and her husband plan to open a small winery. Sarah writes about food, wine, science, and news for Cornell University and regional publications. In addition, the new exhibit, “Now is the Time of Our Country’s Need”: Geneva and the Civil War, will be open from 5 to 8 p.m. during Geneva Night Out.

Limited Release Wine Tasting

August 15th, 2015

Winemakers love to experiment with new wines and sometimes it’s a new varietal, a new blend, or a new style of a wine we have made in other ways. Each year, we introduce two new wines from the Wine Team’s experiments at this event. Sometimes we also bring back a wine that hasn't been made in a number of years, sometimes it’s something we have never tried before. Come and be one of the first to experience these new wines! Visit our website for more details!

First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last thirteen years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 34 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for HBO series, “VICE.” In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.
