What could be better than an exhibit about glass and wine? Sipping Finger Lakes wine while viewing beautiful glass objects, of course!
The Museum is partnering with local wineries to present Fire & Vine Wine Wednesdays all summer long. From July 6 to August 24, join us each Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m. to experience the flavors that make the Finger Lakes known worldwide for its exceptional winemaking. We’ll feature a different winery each week.
This week, we'll be partnering with Weis Vineyards.
Adjacent to the tasting, view the exhibit Fire & Vine: The Story of Glass and Wine, which highlights two of the most important industries in the Finger Lakes. Learn about the ways that glass is involved in all phases of the winemaking process, from grape to goblet.
Tastings will be free with the cost of Museum admission. Proof of age 21 and over required. Local residents (in zip codes beginning with 148,149, 169) always receive 50% off admission.
About Weis Vineyards
Born in Zell Mosel, Germany, Winemaker Hans Peter Weis traveled to the United States on a quest to pursue his passion and discover the world. However, his travels were cut short when he stumbled upon his home away from home in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Finding the minerality of the soil and climate similar to that of home, he is able to pursue his passion of handcrafting traditional German style wines for all to enjoy.
