Rockwell Museum Red Dress Exhibit + Events

Native American women are more than twice as likely to experience violence than any other demographic and they are murdered at rates that are more than 10 times the national average, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. The crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) is not new. It is part of the spectrum of violence experienced by Native American (Indigenous) Women. 

Red Dress Exhibit

In partnership with the Corning Native American Council and Corning Community College, The Rockwell Museum will display red dresses in our Southwest Lodge and in Buechner Park. The red dresses are a visual expression of grief for thousands of Native victims, serving as stand-ins for the thousands of native women who go missing or are murdered each year.  We invite you to take a walk on Market Street in Corning, N.Y. to see the Red Dresses.

“Provocative Mothers Raising Precocious Daughters: Women’s Rights Leaders from the Finger Lakes” A program by Suzanne Schnittman

The final program of the Geneva Historical Society's 2021 virtual Spring Lecture Series will be “Provocative Mothers Raising Precocious Daughters: Women’s Rights Leaders from the Finger Lakes,” by Suzanne Schnittman on Tuesday, May 4 at 7 p.m.

 

Suzanne Schnittman is the author of the book Provocative Mothers and Their Precocious Daughters: 19th Century Women’s Rights Leaders, which presents the engaging lives of four pioneers in the women’s rights and abolitionist movements and their four daughters. Each woman helped procure woman suffrage in her own way, demonstrating the richness of family influences in building activism and character. Schnittman will share some of their most enticing stories, including several with connections to the Finger Lakes region.

 

Suzanne Schnittman earned her PhD in American History at the University of Rochester. After teaching for many years at a number of colleges in New York, including Hobart and William Smith in Geneva, she retired to pursue her passion: women’s history. She currently works as an independent scholar, researching women like those she explores in her latest book. She lives in Rochester and participates in many endeavors that promote greater Finger Lakes academic, women’s and children’s concerns. Schnittman's book is available on Amazon and a copy will be given away to one participant in the program. Participants must be present online to win.

The Lecture Series is supported in part by the Samuel B. Williams fund for programs in the Humanities and is free and open to the public. For more information about the program, call the Geneva Historical Society office at 315-789-5151 or visit genevahistoricalsociety.com.
 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the lecture will be presented virtually through Zoom, and advance registration is required. A device, internet connection, and email address are necessary to participate. To register, participants should visit the program event page on the Geneva Historical Society website event calendar. The necessary login information will be sent to registrants via email 24 hours prior to the program. For any problems with registration or to register by phone, call the Geneva Historical Society office at 315-789-5151. Registrations must be complete before 12:00 noon, May 4, the day of the program.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

The crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) is not new. It is part of the spectrum of violence experienced by Native American (Indigenous) Women. 

Red Dress Exhibit

In partnership with the Corning Native American Council and Corning Community College, The Rockwell Museum will display red dresses in our Southwest Lodge and in Buechner Park. The red dresses are a visual expression of grief for thousands of Native victims, serving as stand-ins for the thousands of native women who go missing or are murdered each year.  We invite you to take a walk on Market Street in Corning, N.Y. to see the Red Dresses.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Lecture Description

In anticipation of the summer spotlight exhibition, FLX KODACHROME, please join us as we hear first-hand from artist Nathan Benn.

In addition to sharing images of the Finger Lakes from the mid-1970s, Benn will briefly discuss the evolution of color photography after 1900, a few of National Geographic’s milestones in publishing history, and his own path onto the National Geographic photo staff just as he celebrated his 22nd birthday.

FLX KODACHROME features the work of Nathan Benn who photographed the Finger Lakes over the course of a year for National Geographic Magazine in 1975. Benn focused his lens on the heritage and industry of the region, capturing sweeping aerial landscapes of the Finger Lakes and surrounding small towns, as well as portraits of assembly line workers, glassblowers, winery pickers, auctioneers, parade spectators, scout troops and racing enthusiasts of the 70s.


Event Format: This is a Zoom Webinar – that means your camera and microphone won’t be activated, and you’ll be able to just sit back, relax and listen in. A chat box will be available for you to engage with the other attendees and ask questions.

 

The Zoom link will be included in your confirmation email once you register, and will include simple instructions on how to join with your computer, mobile phone or tablet.

Rockwell Museum Red Dress Exhibit + Events

Native American women are more than twice as likely to experience violence than any other demographic and they are murdered at rates that are more than 10 times the national average, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. The crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) is not new. It is part of the spectrum of violence experienced by Native American (Indigenous) Women. 

Red Dress Exhibit

In partnership with the Corning Native American Council and Corning Community College, The Rockwell Museum will display red dresses in our Southwest Lodge and in Buechner Park. The red dresses are a visual expression of grief for thousands of Native victims, serving as stand-ins for the thousands of native women who go missing or are murdered each year.  We invite you to take a walk on Market Street in Corning, N.Y. to see the Red Dresses.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES

On Demand May 10-23, 2021  |  Streaming Event

 

Based on the novella by Erich Kästner, Adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom

Never underestimate the determination of a child!  Young Emil catches a train to visit family, but something valuable is stolen and Emil ends up alone in the big city, lost and desperate. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around, and the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the criminal?

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES is a journey about discovery and self-discovery, the value of friendships and taking risks, and the empowerment of young people.  In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, the story is told by two skilled actors combining the thrilling intrigue of a classic caper with an evocative film noir design, complete with smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score.

Flights and Florals, May 14, 15, 15 and 21, 22, 23
Flights and Florals

Calling all gardeners… We’d like to introduce you to Flights and Florals: a fun, new event that’s bound to brighten your day AND your patio all summer long!

Here’s a quick rundown on how this event will work, but please see below for further details, explanations, and event tidbits:

  • Event days are May 14, 15, 16 and May 21, 22, 23, from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Tickets are sold only in bundles of 4 to maximize available space, $275 + tax and service fees. No exceptions.
  • Average tasting price at wineries is now $10-$14 per person. 6 wineries x $10 = $60/person x 4 people = $240 (6 wineries x $12 = $72/person = $288)  Tax and service fees not included, but 2 full sets of potted plants are!
  • This is a one-day event, with 2 weekends and multiple dates to choose from. Tickets will only be honored on their specified date, with no exceptions or exchanges.
  • Ticket price includes 6 wineries, with food and wine samples served at each. Sample sizes have been increased from previous events.
  • Ticket price also includes a souvenir wineglass for each of the 4 people, plus 2 full sets of 13 plants, 26 in total.
  • Multiple itineraries are available to choose from. Quantities of each are limited, and cannot be increased.
  • You must stick to your chosen itinerary: Early or late arrivals at each winery will only be accommodated if space permits.
  • Wineries reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated customers, or those arriving outside of their designated time slot.
  • All tastings will be conducted while you’re seated, and all COVID mandates will be adhered to.  Masks are required at all times unless seated.
  • No pets, please.

What’s new this year?

Tickets are sold in bundles of 4. NYS mandates state that wine must be served sitting down, so the wineries are providing tables, though some are dividing their tasting bars into groups of 4 seats. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible while remaining socially distant, we are unable to provide seating for smaller groups. But let’s be real- wine is much more enjoyable when you can sit and savor it.

3 days to choose from! This event is listed for 3 days over the course of 2 different weekends, but your ticket is only good for one day- with an itinerary* provided. I know this deviates from how we’ve done events in the past, but we have to be able to stick to regulations and keep crowds to a minimum. Your group of 4 will be provided with an itinerary* for 6 different wineries to follow for your selected day. This helps keep all the tasting rooms compliant to current capacity limitations, not to mention makes the crowds almost nonexistent, thus exemplifying your experience.

Your itinerary* is incredibly important! Don’t worry- you’ll be able to select an itinerary* for the day you wish to come, from multiple options to boot, so you should be able to see your favorites! Again, this is to help keep the wineries from getting overwhelmed and accidentally becoming non-compliant throughout the day. It’s also a safety measure to keep a reasonable amount of people at 6 feet distances. Our numbers in the region are on the decline and we want to do our part to keep it that way! (See below for a further breakdown of how the itinerary works.)

What do you receive? Each bundle of 4 is $275, plus tax and service fee. All 4 of the folks within this bundle will receive:

  • a spring-inspired food dish large enough for at least 3 to 4 bites, if not more, at all 6 wineries
  • 4 wines presented with it, also at all 6 stops
  • a digital recipe book for all 13 food options
  • 2 full sets of all 13 potted plants, 26 in total, all bundled together to take home at your last stop
  • and a souvenir  wine glass to take home at your last stop

We know this event doesn’t look like they have in the past, but we think you’ll love the new and improved way we’re bringing these to you! We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**


*Itinerary FAQ:

This is a whole new concept so I wanted to break it down as much as I could. This is also THE MOST important part of the day and I want to make sure it’s as clear and simple as possible.

  • As mentioned above, we’re doing itineraries to help everyone out. This is the only way to keep each tasting room in compliance at all times of the day. If you’ve attended one of our events in the past, you know that it can get quite crowded at all hours. I know that that’s part of the fun for some, but it’s also 100% not safe right now. Safety is our #1 priority in this. Second is your experience and enjoyment!
  • Itineraries are broken down into groups of 6 wineries, with many different ones to choose from. 13 of the wineries are participating in this event, and all 13 will be a starting option, with a few different paths to follow for each. Since your ticket includes 6 wineries, you’ll get to visit almost half of them, but you’ll receive the recipe AND plants for all 13- bonus!
  • All 12 of the wineries are structured differently and can seat a different amount of people. Itineraries are made based on their individual capacity limits and the NYS regulation that fits their space.
  • Your itinerary has you at each winery on the hour, every hour starting at 10 am and getting to your last winery at 3 pm. (There are some itineraries that have you at Long Point at a :30 minute time, and getting to your last stop at 4. This is to accommodate a bit of extra travel time, which equates to more time to sing in the car between stops!) This allows your group time for the tasting, shopping, bathroom, travel to the next, etc. Remember- each winery is different and will conduct their tasting a bit differently, so they won’t all take the same exact amount of time. I know the title says ‘flights’, but since they’re all different, some may also offer that flight, while others may pour one at a time. A different experience at each is a good thing! This helps differentiate your stops and also prevents them from blurring together.
  • If you’re running late, this will eat into your tasting time at that stop. Because it’s a structured day, there isn’t room to extend time at each stop to accommodate. We know accidents happen, but try your best to be on time. ‘Leave by times’ are provided as you’re browsing the different itineraries and are on your receipt after your purchase. The ticketing agency, Showclix, will also send an event reminder with the itinerary, and the wine trail office will also send you an email a few days before the event to remind you of your schedule, to provide you with your digital recipe book, and to send a little bonus project that we’re working on to help enhance your day!
  • If you’re early, we also kindly ask you to wait to go in if the group before you is still using the area.
  • All 4 “tickets” will be listed under the purchaser’s name, but all 4 will be ID’d at check-in.
  • At each stop, you’ll be asked for your name to check-in, and even though each person in your group was ID’d at the first stop, you’ll likely be asked for ID each time, too. It’s up to them to make sure everyone they serve is 21 years or older and is taken very seriously.
  • If you pass a winery on your itinerary while going to the next, don’t worry! Travel time isn’t really an issue here and backtracking just couldn’t be avoided. It was built into your day and will all work out, trust me!
  • This schedule also allows the wineries time to clean up, sanitize, and reset before the next group arrives. Again- safety safety safety. We want YOU to feel safe coming, and we also want their employees to feel safe serving you. The safer we are, the more of these events we can host!
  • Itineraries cannot be modified in any way, shape, or form. They’re specially curated to each wineries availability and they’re all full and accounted for.

General FAQ:

  • How did you determine the cost? The cost is reflective of the current tasting fee structures. When the wineries were able to open back up in June of 2020, they had to implement a whole new tasting room concept and cleaning routines. Gone was the ability to let folks stand at the counter and taste and in was the mandate that they must be seated. After each tasting group, staff had to come in and clean down everything that was touched- chair, table, pencil, you name it. They were also told they could only serve wine if a food item was served with it. With extra safety measures, seating, and food came an elevated experience that was a far higher value than previous tasting fees. On average, tasting fees are $10 per person for 4 to 6 wines, but go as high as $14. Typically, the food included with it is oyster crackers or another small snacky item that likely isn’t wanted by you at every stop, yet has to be included per NYS mandates. (Though it’s sometimes nice to find a random snack in your car partway through your day!)
    • Our event is $275 for a table of 4, equalling $68.75 a person. Since you’ll visit 6 wineries, that’s $11.45 a winery. With the addition of the food, the full set of potted plants, the event, the recipes, the experience, the memories, and the souvenir wine glass.
  • Will there be a reduced DD rate? At this time, we aren’t able to offer a reduced DD rate. The restructuring of this event has been a very complex process and adding a DD option into the ticket buying experience will have only made it that much more difficult to manage. We certainly don’t discredit how valuable a DD is to the wine experience and still want to encourage responsible choices about drinking and driving. Visit this page to look at various companies in the area that can help you get around.
  • Why must it be a group of 4? Why can’t 2 of us come alone? The simple answer is that most tables seat 4. A more complex explanation is that with the tasting room capacity guidelines, the wineries are able to space a group of 4 out much easier than a smaller group. Regardless of the size, the group has to be 6 feet from the next. If they sat 2 at a 4 top table, they’d have to allow fewer people in per hour to accommodate, meaning we’d have to limit tickets even more than they already are.
  • Will there be transportation and accommodation packages this year? Unfortunately, no. To be frank, with how complex this event has been to restructure, adding in another difficulty like that would be impossible, not to mention that since groups are limited to 4, I wouldn’t be able to rent a shuttle bus as I have in the past.

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*
  • Varick Winery*
  • Knapp Winery*
  • Goose Watch Winery*
  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*
  • Hosmer Winery*
  • Lucas Vineyards
  • Americana Vineyards*

I know it’s a lot to choose from, so here are some things to consider when purchasing an itinerary:

  • Personally, I like to start farther away so I can work my way closer to home base. Admittedly, not all of these itineraries are able to smoothly go north to south or south to north. Backtracking was inevitable, but all travel times were considered when these were being created. (And I’ve also provided a “leave by” time right in the ticket ordering system to help manage your time between each stop.) This all being said, if you’re struggling to pick the right schedule, choose one that has you ending closer to wherever you’re going to afterward.
  • Others like to start their day at a winery nearest to where they’re coming from.
  • If you don’t care about the start or end location, select one based on the wineries within the itinerary. If you click “more details” under each option, you’ll see exactly which wineries are included.
  • If you can’t get an itinerary that includes some of the ones you want, think of this as a good time to try one you haven’t been to before, or maybe one you didn’t previously enjoy. Staff, vintages, and experience change over the course of years and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised this time around!
  • *Important* The number in the dropdown box is how many tables/bundles of 4 are available, not how many people you’re buying for.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Flights and Florals, May 14, 15, 15 and 21, 22, 23
Flights and Florals

Calling all gardeners… We’d like to introduce you to Flights and Florals: a fun, new event that’s bound to brighten your day AND your patio all summer long!

Here’s a quick rundown on how this event will work, but please see below for further details, explanations, and event tidbits:

  • Event days are May 14, 15, 16 and May 21, 22, 23, from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Tickets are sold only in bundles of 4 to maximize available space, $275 + tax and service fees. No exceptions.
  • Average tasting price at wineries is now $10-$14 per person. 6 wineries x $10 = $60/person x 4 people = $240 (6 wineries x $12 = $72/person = $288)  Tax and service fees not included, but 2 full sets of potted plants are!
  • This is a one-day event, with 2 weekends and multiple dates to choose from. Tickets will only be honored on their specified date, with no exceptions or exchanges.
  • Ticket price includes 6 wineries, with food and wine samples served at each. Sample sizes have been increased from previous events.
  • Ticket price also includes a souvenir wineglass for each of the 4 people, plus 2 full sets of 13 plants, 26 in total.
  • Multiple itineraries are available to choose from. Quantities of each are limited, and cannot be increased.
  • You must stick to your chosen itinerary: Early or late arrivals at each winery will only be accommodated if space permits.
  • Wineries reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated customers, or those arriving outside of their designated time slot.
  • All tastings will be conducted while you’re seated, and all COVID mandates will be adhered to.  Masks are required at all times unless seated.
  • No pets, please.

What’s new this year?

Tickets are sold in bundles of 4. NYS mandates state that wine must be served sitting down, so the wineries are providing tables, though some are dividing their tasting bars into groups of 4 seats. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible while remaining socially distant, we are unable to provide seating for smaller groups. But let’s be real- wine is much more enjoyable when you can sit and savor it.

3 days to choose from! This event is listed for 3 days over the course of 2 different weekends, but your ticket is only good for one day- with an itinerary* provided. I know this deviates from how we’ve done events in the past, but we have to be able to stick to regulations and keep crowds to a minimum. Your group of 4 will be provided with an itinerary* for 6 different wineries to follow for your selected day. This helps keep all the tasting rooms compliant to current capacity limitations, not to mention makes the crowds almost nonexistent, thus exemplifying your experience.

Your itinerary* is incredibly important! Don’t worry- you’ll be able to select an itinerary* for the day you wish to come, from multiple options to boot, so you should be able to see your favorites! Again, this is to help keep the wineries from getting overwhelmed and accidentally becoming non-compliant throughout the day. It’s also a safety measure to keep a reasonable amount of people at 6 feet distances. Our numbers in the region are on the decline and we want to do our part to keep it that way! (See below for a further breakdown of how the itinerary works.)

What do you receive? Each bundle of 4 is $275, plus tax and service fee. All 4 of the folks within this bundle will receive:

  • a spring-inspired food dish large enough for at least 3 to 4 bites, if not more, at all 6 wineries
  • 4 wines presented with it, also at all 6 stops
  • a digital recipe book for all 13 food options
  • 2 full sets of all 13 potted plants, 26 in total, all bundled together to take home at your last stop
  • and a souvenir  wine glass to take home at your last stop

We know this event doesn’t look like they have in the past, but we think you’ll love the new and improved way we’re bringing these to you! We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**


*Itinerary FAQ:

This is a whole new concept so I wanted to break it down as much as I could. This is also THE MOST important part of the day and I want to make sure it’s as clear and simple as possible.

  • As mentioned above, we’re doing itineraries to help everyone out. This is the only way to keep each tasting room in compliance at all times of the day. If you’ve attended one of our events in the past, you know that it can get quite crowded at all hours. I know that that’s part of the fun for some, but it’s also 100% not safe right now. Safety is our #1 priority in this. Second is your experience and enjoyment!
  • Itineraries are broken down into groups of 6 wineries, with many different ones to choose from. 13 of the wineries are participating in this event, and all 13 will be a starting option, with a few different paths to follow for each. Since your ticket includes 6 wineries, you’ll get to visit almost half of them, but you’ll receive the recipe AND plants for all 13- bonus!
  • All 12 of the wineries are structured differently and can seat a different amount of people. Itineraries are made based on their individual capacity limits and the NYS regulation that fits their space.
  • Your itinerary has you at each winery on the hour, every hour starting at 10 am and getting to your last winery at 3 pm. (There are some itineraries that have you at Long Point at a :30 minute time, and getting to your last stop at 4. This is to accommodate a bit of extra travel time, which equates to more time to sing in the car between stops!) This allows your group time for the tasting, shopping, bathroom, travel to the next, etc. Remember- each winery is different and will conduct their tasting a bit differently, so they won’t all take the same exact amount of time. I know the title says ‘flights’, but since they’re all different, some may also offer that flight, while others may pour one at a time. A different experience at each is a good thing! This helps differentiate your stops and also prevents them from blurring together.
  • If you’re running late, this will eat into your tasting time at that stop. Because it’s a structured day, there isn’t room to extend time at each stop to accommodate. We know accidents happen, but try your best to be on time. ‘Leave by times’ are provided as you’re browsing the different itineraries and are on your receipt after your purchase. The ticketing agency, Showclix, will also send an event reminder with the itinerary, and the wine trail office will also send you an email a few days before the event to remind you of your schedule, to provide you with your digital recipe book, and to send a little bonus project that we’re working on to help enhance your day!
  • If you’re early, we also kindly ask you to wait to go in if the group before you is still using the area.
  • All 4 “tickets” will be listed under the purchaser’s name, but all 4 will be ID’d at check-in.
  • At each stop, you’ll be asked for your name to check-in, and even though each person in your group was ID’d at the first stop, you’ll likely be asked for ID each time, too. It’s up to them to make sure everyone they serve is 21 years or older and is taken very seriously.
  • If you pass a winery on your itinerary while going to the next, don’t worry! Travel time isn’t really an issue here and backtracking just couldn’t be avoided. It was built into your day and will all work out, trust me!
  • This schedule also allows the wineries time to clean up, sanitize, and reset before the next group arrives. Again- safety safety safety. We want YOU to feel safe coming, and we also want their employees to feel safe serving you. The safer we are, the more of these events we can host!
  • Itineraries cannot be modified in any way, shape, or form. They’re specially curated to each wineries availability and they’re all full and accounted for.

General FAQ:

  • How did you determine the cost? The cost is reflective of the current tasting fee structures. When the wineries were able to open back up in June of 2020, they had to implement a whole new tasting room concept and cleaning routines. Gone was the ability to let folks stand at the counter and taste and in was the mandate that they must be seated. After each tasting group, staff had to come in and clean down everything that was touched- chair, table, pencil, you name it. They were also told they could only serve wine if a food item was served with it. With extra safety measures, seating, and food came an elevated experience that was a far higher value than previous tasting fees. On average, tasting fees are $10 per person for 4 to 6 wines, but go as high as $14. Typically, the food included with it is oyster crackers or another small snacky item that likely isn’t wanted by you at every stop, yet has to be included per NYS mandates. (Though it’s sometimes nice to find a random snack in your car partway through your day!)
    • Our event is $275 for a table of 4, equalling $68.75 a person. Since you’ll visit 6 wineries, that’s $11.45 a winery. With the addition of the food, the full set of potted plants, the event, the recipes, the experience, the memories, and the souvenir wine glass.
  • Will there be a reduced DD rate? At this time, we aren’t able to offer a reduced DD rate. The restructuring of this event has been a very complex process and adding a DD option into the ticket buying experience will have only made it that much more difficult to manage. We certainly don’t discredit how valuable a DD is to the wine experience and still want to encourage responsible choices about drinking and driving. Visit this page to look at various companies in the area that can help you get around.
  • Why must it be a group of 4? Why can’t 2 of us come alone? The simple answer is that most tables seat 4. A more complex explanation is that with the tasting room capacity guidelines, the wineries are able to space a group of 4 out much easier than a smaller group. Regardless of the size, the group has to be 6 feet from the next. If they sat 2 at a 4 top table, they’d have to allow fewer people in per hour to accommodate, meaning we’d have to limit tickets even more than they already are.
  • Will there be transportation and accommodation packages this year? Unfortunately, no. To be frank, with how complex this event has been to restructure, adding in another difficulty like that would be impossible, not to mention that since groups are limited to 4, I wouldn’t be able to rent a shuttle bus as I have in the past.

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*

  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES is a journey about discovery and self-discovery, the value of friendships and taking risks, and the empowerment of young people.  In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, the story is told by two skilled actors combining the thrilling intrigue of a classic caper with an evocative film noir design, complete with smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score.

Flights and Florals, May 14, 15, 15 and 21, 22, 23
Flights and Florals

Calling all gardeners… We’d like to introduce you to Flights and Florals: a fun, new event that’s bound to brighten your day AND your patio all summer long!

Here’s a quick rundown on how this event will work, but please see below for further details, explanations, and event tidbits:

  • Event days are May 14, 15, 16 and May 21, 22, 23, from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Tickets are sold only in bundles of 4 to maximize available space, $275 + tax and service fees. No exceptions.
  • Average tasting price at wineries is now $10-$14 per person. 6 wineries x $10 = $60/person x 4 people = $240 (6 wineries x $12 = $72/person = $288)  Tax and service fees not included, but 2 full sets of potted plants are!
  • This is a one-day event, with 2 weekends and multiple dates to choose from. Tickets will only be honored on their specified date, with no exceptions or exchanges.
  • Ticket price includes 6 wineries, with food and wine samples served at each. Sample sizes have been increased from previous events.
  • Ticket price also includes a souvenir wineglass for each of the 4 people, plus 2 full sets of 13 plants, 26 in total.
  • Multiple itineraries are available to choose from. Quantities of each are limited, and cannot be increased.
  • You must stick to your chosen itinerary: Early or late arrivals at each winery will only be accommodated if space permits.
  • Wineries reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated customers, or those arriving outside of their designated time slot.
  • All tastings will be conducted while you’re seated, and all COVID mandates will be adhered to.  Masks are required at all times unless seated.
  • No pets, please.

What’s new this year?

Tickets are sold in bundles of 4. NYS mandates state that wine must be served sitting down, so the wineries are providing tables, though some are dividing their tasting bars into groups of 4 seats. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible while remaining socially distant, we are unable to provide seating for smaller groups. But let’s be real- wine is much more enjoyable when you can sit and savor it.

3 days to choose from! This event is listed for 3 days over the course of 2 different weekends, but your ticket is only good for one day- with an itinerary* provided. I know this deviates from how we’ve done events in the past, but we have to be able to stick to regulations and keep crowds to a minimum. Your group of 4 will be provided with an itinerary* for 6 different wineries to follow for your selected day. This helps keep all the tasting rooms compliant to current capacity limitations, not to mention makes the crowds almost nonexistent, thus exemplifying your experience.

Your itinerary* is incredibly important! Don’t worry- you’ll be able to select an itinerary* for the day you wish to come, from multiple options to boot, so you should be able to see your favorites! Again, this is to help keep the wineries from getting overwhelmed and accidentally becoming non-compliant throughout the day. It’s also a safety measure to keep a reasonable amount of people at 6 feet distances. Our numbers in the region are on the decline and we want to do our part to keep it that way! (See below for a further breakdown of how the itinerary works.)

What do you receive? Each bundle of 4 is $275, plus tax and service fee. All 4 of the folks within this bundle will receive:

  • a spring-inspired food dish large enough for at least 3 to 4 bites, if not more, at all 6 wineries
  • 4 wines presented with it, also at all 6 stops
  • a digital recipe book for all 13 food options
  • 2 full sets of all 13 potted plants, 26 in total, all bundled together to take home at your last stop
  • and a souvenir  wine glass to take home at your last stop

We know this event doesn’t look like they have in the past, but we think you’ll love the new and improved way we’re bringing these to you! We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**


*Itinerary FAQ:

This is a whole new concept so I wanted to break it down as much as I could. This is also THE MOST important part of the day and I want to make sure it’s as clear and simple as possible.

  • As mentioned above, we’re doing itineraries to help everyone out. This is the only way to keep each tasting room in compliance at all times of the day. If you’ve attended one of our events in the past, you know that it can get quite crowded at all hours. I know that that’s part of the fun for some, but it’s also 100% not safe right now. Safety is our #1 priority in this. Second is your experience and enjoyment!
  • Itineraries are broken down into groups of 6 wineries, with many different ones to choose from. 13 of the wineries are participating in this event, and all 13 will be a starting option, with a few different paths to follow for each. Since your ticket includes 6 wineries, you’ll get to visit almost half of them, but you’ll receive the recipe AND plants for all 13- bonus!
  • All 12 of the wineries are structured differently and can seat a different amount of people. Itineraries are made based on their individual capacity limits and the NYS regulation that fits their space.
  • Your itinerary has you at each winery on the hour, every hour starting at 10 am and getting to your last winery at 3 pm. (There are some itineraries that have you at Long Point at a :30 minute time, and getting to your last stop at 4. This is to accommodate a bit of extra travel time, which equates to more time to sing in the car between stops!) This allows your group time for the tasting, shopping, bathroom, travel to the next, etc. Remember- each winery is different and will conduct their tasting a bit differently, so they won’t all take the same exact amount of time. I know the title says ‘flights’, but since they’re all different, some may also offer that flight, while others may pour one at a time. A different experience at each is a good thing! This helps differentiate your stops and also prevents them from blurring together.
  • If you’re running late, this will eat into your tasting time at that stop. Because it’s a structured day, there isn’t room to extend time at each stop to accommodate. We know accidents happen, but try your best to be on time. ‘Leave by times’ are provided as you’re browsing the different itineraries and are on your receipt after your purchase. The ticketing agency, Showclix, will also send an event reminder with the itinerary, and the wine trail office will also send you an email a few days before the event to remind you of your schedule, to provide you with your digital recipe book, and to send a little bonus project that we’re working on to help enhance your day!
  • If you’re early, we also kindly ask you to wait to go in if the group before you is still using the area.
  • All 4 “tickets” will be listed under the purchaser’s name, but all 4 will be ID’d at check-in.
  • At each stop, you’ll be asked for your name to check-in, and even though each person in your group was ID’d at the first stop, you’ll likely be asked for ID each time, too. It’s up to them to make sure everyone they serve is 21 years or older and is taken very seriously.
  • If you pass a winery on your itinerary while going to the next, don’t worry! Travel time isn’t really an issue here and backtracking just couldn’t be avoided. It was built into your day and will all work out, trust me!
  • This schedule also allows the wineries time to clean up, sanitize, and reset before the next group arrives. Again- safety safety safety. We want YOU to feel safe coming, and we also want their employees to feel safe serving you. The safer we are, the more of these events we can host!
  • Itineraries cannot be modified in any way, shape, or form. They’re specially curated to each wineries availability and they’re all full and accounted for.

General FAQ:

  • How did you determine the cost? The cost is reflective of the current tasting fee structures. When the wineries were able to open back up in June of 2020, they had to implement a whole new tasting room concept and cleaning routines. Gone was the ability to let folks stand at the counter and taste and in was the mandate that they must be seated. After each tasting group, staff had to come in and clean down everything that was touched- chair, table, pencil, you name it. They were also told they could only serve wine if a food item was served with it. With extra safety measures, seating, and food came an elevated experience that was a far higher value than previous tasting fees. On average, tasting fees are $10 per person for 4 to 6 wines, but go as high as $14. Typically, the food included with it is oyster crackers or another small snacky item that likely isn’t wanted by you at every stop, yet has to be included per NYS mandates. (Though it’s sometimes nice to find a random snack in your car partway through your day!)
    • Our event is $275 for a table of 4, equalling $68.75 a person. Since you’ll visit 6 wineries, that’s $11.45 a winery. With the addition of the food, the full set of potted plants, the event, the recipes, the experience, the memories, and the souvenir wine glass.
  • Will there be a reduced DD rate? At this time, we aren’t able to offer a reduced DD rate. The restructuring of this event has been a very complex process and adding a DD option into the ticket buying experience will have only made it that much more difficult to manage. We certainly don’t discredit how valuable a DD is to the wine experience and still want to encourage responsible choices about drinking and driving. Visit this page to look at various companies in the area that can help you get around.
  • Why must it be a group of 4? Why can’t 2 of us come alone? The simple answer is that most tables seat 4. A more complex explanation is that with the tasting room capacity guidelines, the wineries are able to space a group of 4 out much easier than a smaller group. Regardless of the size, the group has to be 6 feet from the next. If they sat 2 at a 4 top table, they’d have to allow fewer people in per hour to accommodate, meaning we’d have to limit tickets even more than they already are.
  • Will there be transportation and accommodation packages this year? Unfortunately, no. To be frank, with how complex this event has been to restructure, adding in another difficulty like that would be impossible, not to mention that since groups are limited to 4, I wouldn’t be able to rent a shuttle bus as I have in the past.

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*
  • Varick Winery*
  • Knapp Winery*
  • Goose Watch Winery*
  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*
  • Hosmer Winery*
  • Lucas Vineyards
  • Americana Vineyards*

I know it’s a lot to choose from, so here are some things to consider when purchasing an itinerary:

  • Personally, I like to start farther away so I can work my way closer to home base. Admittedly, not all of these itineraries are able to smoothly go north to south or south to north. Backtracking was inevitable, but all travel times were considered when these were being created. (And I’ve also provided a “leave by” time right in the ticket ordering system to help manage your time between each stop.) This all being said, if you’re struggling to pick the right schedule, choose one that has you ending closer to wherever you’re going to afterward.
  • Others like to start their day at a winery nearest to where they’re coming from.
  • If you don’t care about the start or end location, select one based on the wineries within the itinerary. If you click “more details” under each option, you’ll see exactly which wineries are included.
  • If you can’t get an itinerary that includes some of the ones you want, think of this as a good time to try one you haven’t been to before, or maybe one you didn’t previously enjoy. Staff, vintages, and experience change over the course of years and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised this time around!
  • *Important* The number in the dropdown box is how many tables/bundles of 4 are available, not how many people you’re buying for.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*
  • Varick Winery*
  • Knapp Winery*
  • Goose Watch Winery*
  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*
  • Hosmer Winery*
  • Lucas Vineyards
  • Americana Vineyards*

I know it’s a lot to choose from, so here are some things to consider when purchasing an itinerary:

This all being said, if you’re struggling to pick the right schedule, choose one that has you ending closer to wherever you’re going to afterward.
  • Others like to start their day at a winery nearest to where they’re coming from.
  • If you don’t care about the start or end location, select one based on the wineries within the itinerary. If you click “more details” under each option, you’ll see exactly which wineries are included.
  • If you can’t get an itinerary that includes some of the ones you want, think of this as a good time to try one you haven’t been to before, or maybe one you didn’t previously enjoy. Staff, vintages, and experience change over the course of years and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised this time around!
  • *Important* The number in the dropdown box is how many tables/bundles of 4 are available, not how many people you’re buying for.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES - Streaming Event

A Clemens Center Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series production
presented by Slingsby of Adelaide, Australia

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES

On Demand May 10-23, 2021  |  Streaming Event

 

Based on the novella by Erich Kästner, Adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom

Never underestimate the determination of a child!  Young Emil catches a train to visit family, but something valuable is stolen and Emil ends up alone in the big city, lost and desperate. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around, and the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the criminal?

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES is a journey about discovery and self-discovery, the value of friendships and taking risks, and the empowerment of young people.  In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, the story is told by two skilled actors combining the thrilling intrigue of a classic caper with an evocative film noir design, complete with smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score.

Varick Winery Spud Chuckin'

Flights and Florals, May 14, 15, 15 and 21, 22, 23
Flights and Florals

Calling all gardeners… We’d like to introduce you to Flights and Florals: a fun, new event that’s bound to brighten your day AND your patio all summer long!

Here’s a quick rundown on how this event will work, but please see below for further details, explanations, and event tidbits:

  • Event days are May 14, 15, 16 and May 21, 22, 23, from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Tickets are sold only in bundles of 4 to maximize available space, $275 + tax and service fees. No exceptions.
  • Average tasting price at wineries is now $10-$14 per person. 6 wineries x $10 = $60/person x 4 people = $240 (6 wineries x $12 = $72/person = $288)  Tax and service fees not included, but 2 full sets of potted plants are!
  • This is a one-day event, with 2 weekends and multiple dates to choose from. Tickets will only be honored on their specified date, with no exceptions or exchanges.
  • Ticket price includes 6 wineries, with food and wine samples served at each. Sample sizes have been increased from previous events.
  • Ticket price also includes a souvenir wineglass for each of the 4 people, plus 2 full sets of 13 plants, 26 in total.
  • Multiple itineraries are available to choose from. Quantities of each are limited, and cannot be increased.
  • You must stick to your chosen itinerary: Early or late arrivals at each winery will only be accommodated if space permits.
  • Wineries reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated customers, or those arriving outside of their designated time slot.
  • All tastings will be conducted while you’re seated, and all COVID mandates will be adhered to.  Masks are required at all times unless seated.
  • No pets, please.

What’s new this year?

Tickets are sold in bundles of 4. NYS mandates state that wine must be served sitting down, so the wineries are providing tables, though some are dividing their tasting bars into groups of 4 seats. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible while remaining socially distant, we are unable to provide seating for smaller groups. But let’s be real- wine is much more enjoyable when you can sit and savor it.

3 days to choose from! This event is listed for 3 days over the course of 2 different weekends, but your ticket is only good for one day- with an itinerary* provided. I know this deviates from how we’ve done events in the past, but we have to be able to stick to regulations and keep crowds to a minimum. Your group of 4 will be provided with an itinerary* for 6 different wineries to follow for your selected day. This helps keep all the tasting rooms compliant to current capacity limitations, not to mention makes the crowds almost nonexistent, thus exemplifying your experience.

Your itinerary* is incredibly important! Don’t worry- you’ll be able to select an itinerary* for the day you wish to come, from multiple options to boot, so you should be able to see your favorites! Again, this is to help keep the wineries from getting overwhelmed and accidentally becoming non-compliant throughout the day. It’s also a safety measure to keep a reasonable amount of people at 6 feet distances. Our numbers in the region are on the decline and we want to do our part to keep it that way! (See below for a further breakdown of how the itinerary works.)

What do you receive? Each bundle of 4 is $275, plus tax and service fee. All 4 of the folks within this bundle will receive:

  • a spring-inspired food dish large enough for at least 3 to 4 bites, if not more, at all 6 wineries
  • 4 wines presented with it, also at all 6 stops
  • a digital recipe book for all 13 food options
  • 2 full sets of all 13 potted plants, 26 in total, all bundled together to take home at your last stop
  • and a souvenir  wine glass to take home at your last stop

We know this event doesn’t look like they have in the past, but we think you’ll love the new and improved way we’re bringing these to you! We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**


*Itinerary FAQ:

This is a whole new concept so I wanted to break it down as much as I could. This is also THE MOST important part of the day and I want to make sure it’s as clear and simple as possible.

  • As mentioned above, we’re doing itineraries to help everyone out. This is the only way to keep each tasting room in compliance at all times of the day. If you’ve attended one of our events in the past, you know that it can get quite crowded at all hours. I know that that’s part of the fun for some, but it’s also 100% not safe right now. Safety is our #1 priority in this. Second is your experience and enjoyment!
  • Itineraries are broken down into groups of 6 wineries, with many different ones to choose from. 13 of the wineries are participating in this event, and all 13 will be a starting option, with a few different paths to follow for each. Since your ticket includes 6 wineries, you’ll get to visit almost half of them, but you’ll receive the recipe AND plants for all 13- bonus!
  • All 12 of the wineries are structured differently and can seat a different amount of people. Itineraries are made based on their individual capacity limits and the NYS regulation that fits their space.
  • Your itinerary has you at each winery on the hour, every hour starting at 10 am and getting to your last winery at 3 pm. (There are some itineraries that have you at Long Point at a :30 minute time, and getting to your last stop at 4. This is to accommodate a bit of extra travel time, which equates to more time to sing in the car between stops!) This allows your group time for the tasting, shopping, bathroom, travel to the next, etc. Remember- each winery is different and will conduct their tasting a bit differently, so they won’t all take the same exact amount of time. I know the title says ‘flights’, but since they’re all different, some may also offer that flight, while others may pour one at a time. A different experience at each is a good thing! This helps differentiate your stops and also prevents them from blurring together.
  • If you’re running late, this will eat into your tasting time at that stop. Because it’s a structured day, there isn’t room to extend time at each stop to accommodate. We know accidents happen, but try your best to be on time. ‘Leave by times’ are provided as you’re browsing the different itineraries and are on your receipt after your purchase. The ticketing agency, Showclix, will also send an event reminder with the itinerary, and the wine trail office will also send you an email a few days before the event to remind you of your schedule, to provide you with your digital recipe book, and to send a little bonus project that we’re working on to help enhance your day!
  • If you’re early, we also kindly ask you to wait to go in if the group before you is still using the area.
  • All 4 “tickets” will be listed under the purchaser’s name, but all 4 will be ID’d at check-in.
  • At each stop, you’ll be asked for your name to check-in, and even though each person in your group was ID’d at the first stop, you’ll likely be asked for ID each time, too. It’s up to them to make sure everyone they serve is 21 years or older and is taken very seriously.
  • If you pass a winery on your itinerary while going to the next, don’t worry! Travel time isn’t really an issue here and backtracking just couldn’t be avoided. It was built into your day and will all work out, trust me!
  • This schedule also allows the wineries time to clean up, sanitize, and reset before the next group arrives. Again- safety safety safety. We want YOU to feel safe coming, and we also want their employees to feel safe serving you. The safer we are, the more of these events we can host!
  • Itineraries cannot be modified in any way, shape, or form. They’re specially curated to each wineries availability and they’re all full and accounted for.

General FAQ:

  • How did you determine the cost? The cost is reflective of the current tasting fee structures. When the wineries were able to open back up in June of 2020, they had to implement a whole new tasting room concept and cleaning routines. Gone was the ability to let folks stand at the counter and taste and in was the mandate that they must be seated. After each tasting group, staff had to come in and clean down everything that was touched- chair, table, pencil, you name it. They were also told they could only serve wine if a food item was served with it. With extra safety measures, seating, and food came an elevated experience that was a far higher value than previous tasting fees. On average, tasting fees are $10 per person for 4 to 6 wines, but go as high as $14. Typically, the food included with it is oyster crackers or another small snacky item that likely isn’t wanted by you at every stop, yet has to be included per NYS mandates. (Though it’s sometimes nice to find a random snack in your car partway through your day!)
    • Our event is $275 for a table of 4, equalling $68.75 a person. Since you’ll visit 6 wineries, that’s $11.45 a winery. With the addition of the food, the full set of potted plants, the event, the recipes, the experience, the memories, and the souvenir wine glass.
  • Will there be a reduced DD rate? At this time, we aren’t able to offer a reduced DD rate. The restructuring of this event has been a very complex process and adding a DD option into the ticket buying experience will have only made it that much more difficult to manage. We certainly don’t discredit how valuable a DD is to the wine experience and still want to encourage responsible choices about drinking and driving. Visit this page to look at various companies in the area that can help you get around.
  • Why must it be a group of 4? Why can’t 2 of us come alone? The simple answer is that most tables seat 4. A more complex explanation is that with the tasting room capacity guidelines, the wineries are able to space a group of 4 out much easier than a smaller group. Regardless of the size, the group has to be 6 feet from the next. If they sat 2 at a 4 top table, they’d have to allow fewer people in per hour to accommodate, meaning we’d have to limit tickets even more than they already are.
  • Will there be transportation and accommodation packages this year? Unfortunately, no. To be frank, with how complex this event has been to restructure, adding in another difficulty like that would be impossible, not to mention that since groups are limited to 4, I wouldn’t be able to rent a shuttle bus as I have in the past.

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*
  • Varick Winery*
  • Knapp Winery*
  • Goose Watch Winery*
  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*
  • Hosmer Winery*
  • Lucas Vineyards
  • Americana Vineyards*

I know it’s a lot to choose from, so here are some things to consider when purchasing an itinerary:

  • Personally, I like to start farther away so I can work my way closer to home base. Admittedly, not all of these itineraries are able to smoothly go north to south or south to north. Backtracking was inevitable, but all travel times were considered when these were being created. (And I’ve also provided a “leave by” time right in the ticket ordering system to help manage your time between each stop.) This all being said, if you’re struggling to pick the right schedule, choose one that has you ending closer to wherever you’re going to afterward.
  • Others like to start their day at a winery nearest to where they’re coming from.
  • If you don’t care about the start or end location, select one based on the wineries within the itinerary. If you click “more details” under each option, you’ll see exactly which wineries are included.
  • If you can’t get an itinerary that includes some of the ones you want, think of this as a good time to try one you haven’t been to before, or maybe one you didn’t previously enjoy. Staff, vintages, and experience change over the course of years and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised this time around!
  • *Important* The number in the dropdown box is how many tables/bundles of 4 are available, not how many people you’re buying for.

We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**


*Itinerary FAQ:

This is a whole new concept so I wanted to break it down as much as I could. This is also THE MOST important part of the day and I want to make sure it’s as clear and simple as possible.

  • As mentioned above, we’re doing itineraries to help everyone out. This is the only way to keep each tasting room in compliance at all times of the day. If you’ve attended one of our events in the past, you know that it can get quite crowded at all hours. I know that that’s part of the fun for some, but it’s also 100% not safe right now. Safety is our #1 priority in this. Second is your experience and enjoyment!
  • Itineraries are broken down into groups of 6 wineries, with many different ones to choose from. 13 of the wineries are participating in this event, and all 13 will be a starting option, with a few different paths to follow for each. Since your ticket includes 6 wineries, you’ll get to visit almost half of them, but you’ll receive the recipe AND plants for all 13- bonus!
  • All 12 of the wineries are structured differently and can seat a different amount of people. Itineraries are made based on their individual capacity limits and the NYS regulation that fits their space.
  • Your itinerary has you at each winery on the hour, every hour starting at 10 am and getting to your last winery at 3 pm. (There are some itineraries that have you at Long Point at a :30 minute time, and getting to your last stop at 4. This is to accommodate a bit of extra travel time, which equates to more time to sing in the car between stops!) This allows your group time for the tasting, shopping, bathroom, travel to the next, etc. Remember- each winery is different and will conduct their tasting a bit differently, so they won’t all take the same exact amount of time. I know the title says ‘flights’, but since they’re all different, some may also offer that flight, while others may pour one at a time. A different experience at each is a good thing! This helps differentiate your stops and also prevents them from blurring together.
  • If you’re running late, this will eat into your tasting time at that stop. Because it’s a structured day, there isn’t room to extend time at each stop to accommodate. We know accidents happen, but try your best to be on time. ‘Leave by times’ are provided as you’re browsing the different itineraries and are on your receipt after your purchase. The ticketing agency, Showclix, will also send an event reminder with the itinerary, and the wine trail office will also send you an email a few days before the event to remind you of your schedule, to provide you with your digital recipe book, and to send a little bonus project that we’re working on to help enhance your day!
  • If you’re early, we also kindly ask you to wait to go in if the group before you is still using the area.
  • All 4 “tickets” will be listed under the purchaser’s name, but all 4 will be ID’d at check-in.
  • At each stop, you’ll be asked for your name to check-in, and even though each person in your group was ID’d at the first stop, you’ll likely be asked for ID each time, too. It’s up to them to make sure everyone they serve is 21 years or older and is taken very seriously.
  • If you pass a winery on your itinerary while going to the next, don’t worry! Travel time isn’t really an issue here and backtracking just couldn’t be avoided. It was built into your day and will all work out, trust me!
  • This schedule also allows the wineries time to clean up, sanitize, and reset before the next group arrives. Again- safety safety safety. We want YOU to feel safe coming, and we also want their employees to feel safe serving you. The safer we are, the more of these events we can host!
  • Itineraries cannot be modified in any way, shape, or form. They’re specially curated to each wineries availability and they’re all full and accounted for.

General FAQ:

  • How did you determine the cost? The cost is reflective of the current tasting fee structures. When the wineries were able to open back up in June of 2020, they had to implement a whole new tasting room concept and cleaning routines. Gone was the ability to let folks stand at the counter and taste and in was the mandate that they must be seated. After each tasting group, staff had to come in and clean down everything that was touched- chair, table, pencil, you name it. They were also told they could only serve wine if a food item was served with it. With extra safety measures, seating, and food came an elevated experience that was a far higher value than previous tasting fees. On average, tasting fees are $10 per person for 4 to 6 wines, but go as high as $14. Typically, the food included with it is oyster crackers or another small snacky item that likely isn’t wanted by you at every stop, yet has to be included per NYS mandates. (Though it’s sometimes nice to find a random snack in your car partway through your day!)
    • Our event is $275 for a table of 4, equalling $68.75 a person. Since you’ll visit 6 wineries, that’s $11.45 a winery. With the addition of the food, the full set of potted plants, the event, the recipes, the experience, the memories, and the souvenir wine glass.
  • Will there be a reduced DD rate? At this time, we aren’t able to offer a reduced DD rate. The restructuring of this event has been a very complex process and adding a DD option into the ticket buying experience will have only made it that much more difficult to manage. We certainly don’t discredit how valuable a DD is to the wine experience and still want to encourage responsible choices about drinking and driving. Visit this page to look at various companies in the area that can help you get around.
  • Why must it be a group of 4? Why can’t 2 of us come alone? The simple answer is that most tables seat 4. A more complex explanation is that with the tasting room capacity guidelines, the wineries are able to space a group of 4 out much easier than a smaller group. Regardless of the size, the group has to be 6 feet from the next. If they sat 2 at a 4 top table, they’d have to allow fewer people in per hour to accommodate, meaning we’d have to limit tickets even more than they already are.
  • Will there be transportation and accommodation packages this year? Unfortunately, no. To be frank, with how complex this event has been to restructure, adding in another difficulty like that would be impossible, not to mention that since groups are limited to 4, I wouldn’t be able to rent a shuttle bus as I have in the past.

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*
  • Varick Winery*
  • Knapp Winery*
  • Goose Watch Winery*
  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*
  • Hosmer Winery*
  • Lucas Vineyards
  • Americana Vineyards*

I know it’s a lot to choose from, so here are some things to consider when purchasing an itinerary:

  • Personally, I like to start farther away so I can work my way closer to home base. Admittedly, not all of these itineraries are able to smoothly go north to south or south to north. Backtracking was inevitable, but all travel times were considered when these were being created. (And I’ve also provided a “leave by” time right in the ticket ordering system to help manage your time between each stop.) This all being said, if you’re struggling to pick the right schedule, choose one that has you ending closer to wherever you’re going to afterward.
  • Others like to start their day at a winery nearest to where they’re coming from.
  • If you don’t care about the start or end location, select one based on the wineries within the itinerary. If you click “more details” under each option, you’ll see exactly which wineries are included.
  • If you can’t get an itinerary that includes some of the ones you want, think of this as a good time to try one you haven’t been to before, or maybe one you didn’t previously enjoy. Staff, vintages, and experience change over the course of years and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised this time around!
  • *Important* The number in the dropdown box is how many tables/bundles of 4 are available, not how many people you’re buying for.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Flights and Florals, May 14, 15, 15 and 21, 22, 23
Flights and Florals

Calling all gardeners… We’d like to introduce you to Flights and Florals: a fun, new event that’s bound to brighten your day AND your patio all summer long!

Here’s a quick rundown on how this event will work, but please see below for further details, explanations, and event tidbits:

  • Event days are May 14, 15, 16 and May 21, 22, 23, from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Tickets are sold only in bundles of 4 to maximize available space, $275 + tax and service fees. No exceptions.
  • Average tasting price at wineries is now $10-$14 per person. 6 wineries x $10 = $60/person x 4 people = $240 (6 wineries x $12 = $72/person = $288)  Tax and service fees not included, but 2 full sets of potted plants are!
  • This is a one-day event, with 2 weekends and multiple dates to choose from. Tickets will only be honored on their specified date, with no exceptions or exchanges.
  • Ticket price includes 6 wineries, with food and wine samples served at each. Sample sizes have been increased from previous events.
  • Ticket price also includes a souvenir wineglass for each of the 4 people, plus 2 full sets of 13 plants, 26 in total.
  • Multiple itineraries are available to choose from. Quantities of each are limited, and cannot be increased.
  • You must stick to your chosen itinerary: Early or late arrivals at each winery will only be accommodated if space permits.
  • Wineries reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated customers, or those arriving outside of their designated time slot.
  • All tastings will be conducted while you’re seated, and all COVID mandates will be adhered to.  Masks are required at all times unless seated.
  • No pets, please.

What’s new this year?

Tickets are sold in bundles of 4. NYS mandates state that wine must be served sitting down, so the wineries are providing tables, though some are dividing their tasting bars into groups of 4 seats. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible while remaining socially distant, we are unable to provide seating for smaller groups. But let’s be real- wine is much more enjoyable when you can sit and savor it.

3 days to choose from! This event is listed for 3 days over the course of 2 different weekends, but your ticket is only good for one day- with an itinerary* provided. I know this deviates from how we’ve done events in the past, but we have to be able to stick to regulations and keep crowds to a minimum. Your group of 4 will be provided with an itinerary* for 6 different wineries to follow for your selected day. This helps keep all the tasting rooms compliant to current capacity limitations, not to mention makes the crowds almost nonexistent, thus exemplifying your experience.

Your itinerary* is incredibly important! Don’t worry- you’ll be able to select an itinerary* for the day you wish to come, from multiple options to boot, so you should be able to see your favorites! Again, this is to help keep the wineries from getting overwhelmed and accidentally becoming non-compliant throughout the day. It’s also a safety measure to keep a reasonable amount of people at 6 feet distances. Our numbers in the region are on the decline and we want to do our part to keep it that way! (See below for a further breakdown of how the itinerary works.)

What do you receive? Each bundle of 4 is $275, plus tax and service fee. All 4 of the folks within this bundle will receive:

  • a spring-inspired food dish large enough for at least 3 to 4 bites, if not more, at all 6 wineries
  • 4 wines presented with it, also at all 6 stops
  • a digital recipe book for all 13 food options
  • 2 full sets of all 13 potted plants, 26 in total, all bundled together to take home at your last stop
  • and a souvenir  wine glass to take home at your last stop

We know this event doesn’t look like they have in the past, but we think you’ll love the new and improved way we’re bringing these to you! We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES - Streaming Event

A Clemens Center Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series production
presented by Slingsby of Adelaide, Australia

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES

On Demand May 10-23, 2021  |  Streaming Event

 

Based on the novella by Erich Kästner, Adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom

Never underestimate the determination of a child!  Young Emil catches a train to visit family, but something valuable is stolen and Emil ends up alone in the big city, lost and desperate. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around, and the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the criminal?

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES is a journey about discovery and self-discovery, the value of friendships and taking risks, and the empowerment of young people.  In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, the story is told by two skilled actors combining the thrilling intrigue of a classic caper with an evocative film noir design, complete with smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score.

Varick Winery Spud Chuckin'
Varick Winery Spud Chuckin'

Hurl potatoes with a giant slingshot on weekends during the months of June through August. Test your skill at hitting targets; a great way to release tension. Large groups may schedule an appointment to hurl potatoes on other days.

Flights and Florals, May 14, 15, 15 and 21, 22, 23
Flights and Florals

Calling all gardeners… We’d like to introduce you to Flights and Florals: a fun, new event that’s bound to brighten your day AND your patio all summer long!

Here’s a quick rundown on how this event will work, but please see below for further details, explanations, and event tidbits:

  • Event days are May 14, 15, 16 and May 21, 22, 23, from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Tickets are sold only in bundles of 4 to maximize available space, $275 + tax and service fees. No exceptions.
  • Average tasting price at wineries is now $10-$14 per person. 6 wineries x $10 = $60/person x 4 people = $240 (6 wineries x $12 = $72/person = $288)  Tax and service fees not included, but 2 full sets of potted plants are!
  • This is a one-day event, with 2 weekends and multiple dates to choose from. Tickets will only be honored on their specified date, with no exceptions or exchanges.
  • Ticket price includes 6 wineries, with food and wine samples served at each. Sample sizes have been increased from previous events.
  • Ticket price also includes a souvenir wineglass for each of the 4 people, plus 2 full sets of 13 plants, 26 in total.
  • Multiple itineraries are available to choose from. Quantities of each are limited, and cannot be increased.
  • You must stick to your chosen itinerary: Early or late arrivals at each winery will only be accommodated if space permits.
  • Wineries reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated customers, or those arriving outside of their designated time slot.
  • All tastings will be conducted while you’re seated, and all COVID mandates will be adhered to.  Masks are required at all times unless seated.
  • No pets, please.

What’s new this year?

Tickets are sold in bundles of 4. NYS mandates state that wine must be served sitting down, so the wineries are providing tables, though some are dividing their tasting bars into groups of 4 seats. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible while remaining socially distant, we are unable to provide seating for smaller groups. But let’s be real- wine is much more enjoyable when you can sit and savor it.

3 days to choose from! This event is listed for 3 days over the course of 2 different weekends, but your ticket is only good for one day- with an itinerary* provided. I know this deviates from how we’ve done events in the past, but we have to be able to stick to regulations and keep crowds to a minimum. Your group of 4 will be provided with an itinerary* for 6 different wineries to follow for your selected day. This helps keep all the tasting rooms compliant to current capacity limitations, not to mention makes the crowds almost nonexistent, thus exemplifying your experience.

Your itinerary* is incredibly important! Don’t worry- you’ll be able to select an itinerary* for the day you wish to come, from multiple options to boot, so you should be able to see your favorites! Again, this is to help keep the wineries from getting overwhelmed and accidentally becoming non-compliant throughout the day. It’s also a safety measure to keep a reasonable amount of people at 6 feet distances. Our numbers in the region are on the decline and we want to do our part to keep it that way! (See below for a further breakdown of how the itinerary works.)

What do you receive? Each bundle of 4 is $275, plus tax and service fee. All 4 of the folks within this bundle will receive:

  • a spring-inspired food dish large enough for at least 3 to 4 bites, if not more, at all 6 wineries
  • 4 wines presented with it, also at all 6 stops
  • a digital recipe book for all 13 food options
  • 2 full sets of all 13 potted plants, 26 in total, all bundled together to take home at your last stop
  • and a souvenir  wine glass to take home at your last stop

We know this event doesn’t look like they have in the past, but we think you’ll love the new and improved way we’re bringing these to you! We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**


*Itinerary FAQ:

This is a whole new concept so I wanted to break it down as much as I could. This is also THE MOST important part of the day and I want to make sure it’s as clear and simple as possible.

  • As mentioned above, we’re doing itineraries to help everyone out. This is the only way to keep each tasting room in compliance at all times of the day. If you’ve attended one of our events in the past, you know that it can get quite crowded at all hours. I know that that’s part of the fun for some, but it’s also 100% not safe right now. Safety is our #1 priority in this. Second is your experience and enjoyment!
  • Itineraries are broken down into groups of 6 wineries, with many different ones to choose from. 13 of the wineries are participating in this event, and all 13 will be a starting option, with a few different paths to follow for each. Since your ticket includes 6 wineries, you’ll get to visit almost half of them, but you’ll receive the recipe AND plants for all 13- bonus!
  • All 12 of the wineries are structured differently and can seat a different amount of people. Itineraries are made based on their individual capacity limits and the NYS regulation that fits their space.
  • Your itinerary has you at each winery on the hour, every hour starting at 10 am and getting to your last winery at 3 pm. (There are some itineraries that have you at Long Point at a :30 minute time, and getting to your last stop at 4. This is to accommodate a bit of extra travel time, which equates to more time to sing in the car between stops!) This allows your group time for the tasting, shopping, bathroom, travel to the next, etc. Remember- each winery is different and will conduct their tasting a bit differently, so they won’t all take the same exact amount of time. I know the title says ‘flights’, but since they’re all different, some may also offer that flight, while others may pour one at a time. A different experience at each is a good thing! This helps differentiate your stops and also prevents them from blurring together.
  • If you’re running late, this will eat into your tasting time at that stop. Because it’s a structured day, there isn’t room to extend time at each stop to accommodate. We know accidents happen, but try your best to be on time. ‘Leave by times’ are provided as you’re browsing the different itineraries and are on your receipt after your purchase. The ticketing agency, Showclix, will also send an event reminder with the itinerary, and the wine trail office will also send you an email a few days before the event to remind you of your schedule, to provide you with your digital recipe book, and to send a little bonus project that we’re working on to help enhance your day!
  • If you’re early, we also kindly ask you to wait to go in if the group before you is still using the area.
  • All 4 “tickets” will be listed under the purchaser’s name, but all 4 will be ID’d at check-in.
  • At each stop, you’ll be asked for your name to check-in, and even though each person in your group was ID’d at the first stop, you’ll likely be asked for ID each time, too. It’s up to them to make sure everyone they serve is 21 years or older and is taken very seriously.
  • If you pass a winery on your itinerary while going to the next, don’t worry! Travel time isn’t really an issue here and backtracking just couldn’t be avoided. It was built into your day and will all work out, trust me!
  • This schedule also allows the wineries time to clean up, sanitize, and reset before the next group arrives. Again- safety safety safety. We want YOU to feel safe coming, and we also want their employees to feel safe serving you. The safer we are, the more of these events we can host!
  • Itineraries cannot be modified in any way, shape, or form. They’re specially curated to each wineries availability and they’re all full and accounted for.

General FAQ:

  • How did you determine the cost? The cost is reflective of the current tasting fee structures. When the wineries were able to open back up in June of 2020, they had to implement a whole new tasting room concept and cleaning routines. Gone was the ability to let folks stand at the counter and taste and in was the mandate that they must be seated. After each tasting group, staff had to come in and clean down everything that was touched- chair, table, pencil, you name it. They were also told they could only serve wine if a food item was served with it. With extra safety measures, seating, and food came an elevated experience that was a far higher value than previous tasting fees. On average, tasting fees are $10 per person for 4 to 6 wines, but go as high as $14. Typically, the food included with it is oyster crackers or another small snacky item that likely isn’t wanted by you at every stop, yet has to be included per NYS mandates. (Though it’s sometimes nice to find a random snack in your car partway through your day!)
    • Our event is $275 for a table of 4, equalling $68.75 a person. Since you’ll visit 6 wineries, that’s $11.45 a winery. With the addition of the food, the full set of potted plants, the event, the recipes, the experience, the memories, and the souvenir wine glass.
  • Will there be a reduced DD rate? At this time, we aren’t able to offer a reduced DD rate. The restructuring of this event has been a very complex process and adding a DD option into the ticket buying experience will have only made it that much more difficult to manage. We certainly don’t discredit how valuable a DD is to the wine experience and still want to encourage responsible choices about drinking and driving. Visit this page to look at various companies in the area that can help you get around.
  • Why must it be a group of 4? Why can’t 2 of us come alone? The simple answer is that most tables seat 4. A more complex explanation is that with the tasting room capacity guidelines, the wineries are able to space a group of 4 out much easier than a smaller group. Regardless of the size, the group has to be 6 feet from the next. If they sat 2 at a 4 top table, they’d have to allow fewer people in per hour to accommodate, meaning we’d have to limit tickets even more than they already are.
  • Will there be transportation and accommodation packages this year? Unfortunately, no. To be frank, with how complex this event has been to restructure, adding in another difficulty like that would be impossible, not to mention that since groups are limited to 4, I wouldn’t be able to rent a shuttle bus as I have in the past.

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*
  • Varick Winery*
  • Knapp Winery*
  • Goose Watch Winery*
  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*
  • Hosmer Winery*
  • Lucas Vineyards
  • Americana Vineyards*

I know it’s a lot to choose from, so here are some things to consider when purchasing an itinerary:

  • Personally, I like to start farther away so I can work my way closer to home base. Admittedly, not all of these itineraries are able to smoothly go north to south or south to north. Backtracking was inevitable, but all travel times were considered when these were being created. (And I’ve also provided a “leave by” time right in the ticket ordering system to help manage your time between each stop.) This all being said, if you’re struggling to pick the right schedule, choose one that has you ending closer to wherever you’re going to afterward.
  • Others like to start their day at a winery nearest to where they’re coming from.
  • If you don’t care about the start or end location, select one based on the wineries within the itinerary. If you click “more details” under each option, you’ll see exactly which wineries are included.
  • If you can’t get an itinerary that includes some of the ones you want, think of this as a good time to try one you haven’t been to before, or maybe one you didn’t previously enjoy. Staff, vintages, and experience change over the course of years and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised this time around!
  • *Important* The number in the dropdown box is how many tables/bundles of 4 are available, not how many people you’re buying for.

  • Itineraries are broken down into groups of 6 wineries, with many different ones to choose from. 13 of the wineries are participating in this event, and all 13 will be a starting option, with a few different paths to follow for each. Since your ticket includes 6 wineries, you’ll get to visit almost half of them, but you’ll receive the recipe AND plants for all 13- bonus!
  • All 12 of the wineries are structured differently and can seat a different amount of people. Itineraries are made based on their individual capacity limits and the NYS regulation that fits their space.
  • Your itinerary has you at each winery on the hour, every hour starting at 10 am and getting to your last winery at 3 pm. (There are some itineraries that have you at Long Point at a :30 minute time, and getting to your last stop at 4. This is to accommodate a bit of extra travel time, which equates to more time to sing in the car between stops!) This allows your group time for the tasting, shopping, bathroom, travel to the next, etc. Remember- each winery is different and will conduct their tasting a bit differently, so they won’t all take the same exact amount of time. I know the title says ‘flights’, but since they’re all different, some may also offer that flight, while others may pour one at a time. A different experience at each is a good thing! This helps differentiate your stops and also prevents them from blurring together.
  • If you’re running late, this will eat into your tasting time at that stop. Because it’s a structured day, there isn’t room to extend time at each stop to accommodate. We know accidents happen, but try your best to be on time. ‘Leave by times’ are provided as you’re browsing the different itineraries and are on your receipt after your purchase. The ticketing agency, Showclix, will also send an event reminder with the itinerary, and the wine trail office will also send you an email a few days before the event to remind you of your schedule, to provide you with your digital recipe book, and to send a little bonus project that we’re working on to help enhance your day!
  • If you’re early, we also kindly ask you to wait to go in if the group before you is still using the area.
  • All 4 “tickets” will be listed under the purchaser’s name, but all 4 will be ID’d at check-in.
  • At each stop, you’ll be asked for your name to check-in, and even though each person in your group was ID’d at the first stop, you’ll likely be asked for ID each time, too. It’s up to them to make sure everyone they serve is 21 years or older and is taken very seriously.
  • If you pass a winery on your itinerary while going to the next, don’t worry! Travel time isn’t really an issue here and backtracking just couldn’t be avoided. It was built into your day and will all work out, trust me!
  • This schedule also allows the wineries time to clean up, sanitize, and reset before the next group arrives. Again- safety safety safety. We want YOU to feel safe coming, and we also want their employees to feel safe serving you. The safer we are, the more of these events we can host!
  • Itineraries cannot be modified in any way, shape, or form. They’re specially curated to each wineries availability and they’re all full and accounted for.

General FAQ:

  • How did you determine the cost? The cost is reflective of the current tasting fee structures. When the wineries were able to open back up in June of 2020, they had to implement a whole new tasting room concept and cleaning routines. Gone was the ability to let folks stand at the counter and taste and in was the mandate that they must be seated. After each tasting group, staff had to come in and clean down everything that was touched- chair, table, pencil, you name it. They were also told they could only serve wine if a food item was served with it. With extra safety measures, seating, and food came an elevated experience that was a far higher value than previous tasting fees. On average, tasting fees are $10 per person for 4 to 6 wines, but go as high as $14. Typically, the food included with it is oyster crackers or another small snacky item that likely isn’t wanted by you at every stop, yet has to be included per NYS mandates. (Though it’s sometimes nice to find a random snack in your car partway through your day!)
    • Our event is $275 for a table of 4, equalling $68.75 a person. Since you’ll visit 6 wineries, that’s $11.45 a winery. With the addition of the food, the full set of potted plants, the event, the recipes, the experience, the memories, and the souvenir wine glass.
  • Will there be a reduced DD rate? At this time, we aren’t able to offer a reduced DD rate. The restructuring of this event has been a very complex process and adding a DD option into the ticket buying experience will have only made it that much more difficult to manage. We certainly don’t discredit how valuable a DD is to the wine experience and still want to encourage responsible choices about drinking and driving. Visit this page to look at various companies in the area that can help you get around.
  • Why must it be a group of 4? Why can’t 2 of us come alone? The simple answer is that most tables seat 4. A more complex explanation is that with the tasting room capacity guidelines, the wineries are able to space a group of 4 out much easier than a smaller group. Regardless of the size, the group has to be 6 feet from the next. If they sat 2 at a 4 top table, they’d have to allow fewer people in per hour to accommodate, meaning we’d have to limit tickets even more than they already are.
  • Will there be transportation and accommodation packages this year? Unfortunately, no. To be frank, with how complex this event has been to restructure, adding in another difficulty like that would be impossible, not to mention that since groups are limited to 4, I wouldn’t be able to rent a shuttle bus as I have in the past.

Selecting your itinerary

There are about 50 or so itineraries to choose from, with all 13 wineries being a starting point. (Though only 12 are participating Friday*)

Participating wineries are:

  • Long Point Winery*
  • Montezuma Winery*
  • Swedish Hill Winery*
  • Varick Winery*
  • Knapp Winery*
  • Goose Watch Winery*
  • Buttonwood Grove Winery*
  • Toro Run Winery*
  • Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery
  • Thirsty Owl Wine Co.*
  • Hosmer Winery*
  • Lucas Vineyards
  • Americana Vineyards*

I know it’s a lot to choose from, so here are some things to consider when purchasing an itinerary:

  • Personally, I like to start farther away so I can work my way closer to home base. Admittedly, not all of these itineraries are able to smoothly go north to south or south to north. Backtracking was inevitable, but all travel times were considered when these were being created. (And I’ve also provided a “leave by” time right in the ticket ordering system to help manage your time between each stop.) This all being said, if you’re struggling to pick the right schedule, choose one that has you ending closer to wherever you’re going to afterward.
  • Others like to start their day at a winery nearest to where they’re coming from.
  • If you don’t care about the start or end location, select one based on the wineries within the itinerary. If you click “more details” under each option, you’ll see exactly which wineries are included.
  • If you can’t get an itinerary that includes some of the ones you want, think of this as a good time to try one you haven’t been to before, or maybe one you didn’t previously enjoy. Staff, vintages, and experience change over the course of years and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised this time around!
  • *Important* The number in the dropdown box is how many tables/bundles of 4 are available, not how many people you’re buying for.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Flights and Florals, May 14, 15, 15 and 21, 22, 23
Flights and Florals

Calling all gardeners… We’d like to introduce you to Flights and Florals: a fun, new event that’s bound to brighten your day AND your patio all summer long!

Here’s a quick rundown on how this event will work, but please see below for further details, explanations, and event tidbits:

  • Event days are May 14, 15, 16 and May 21, 22, 23, from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Tickets are sold only in bundles of 4 to maximize available space, $275 + tax and service fees. No exceptions.
  • Average tasting price at wineries is now $10-$14 per person. 6 wineries x $10 = $60/person x 4 people = $240 (6 wineries x $12 = $72/person = $288)  Tax and service fees not included, but 2 full sets of potted plants are!
  • This is a one-day event, with 2 weekends and multiple dates to choose from. Tickets will only be honored on their specified date, with no exceptions or exchanges.
  • Ticket price includes 6 wineries, with food and wine samples served at each. Sample sizes have been increased from previous events.
  • Ticket price also includes a souvenir wineglass for each of the 4 people, plus 2 full sets of 13 plants, 26 in total.
  • Multiple itineraries are available to choose from. Quantities of each are limited, and cannot be increased.
  • You must stick to your chosen itinerary: Early or late arrivals at each winery will only be accommodated if space permits.
  • Wineries reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated customers, or those arriving outside of their designated time slot.
  • All tastings will be conducted while you’re seated, and all COVID mandates will be adhered to.  Masks are required at all times unless seated.
  • No pets, please.

What’s new this year?

Tickets are sold in bundles of 4. NYS mandates state that wine must be served sitting down, so the wineries are providing tables, though some are dividing their tasting bars into groups of 4 seats. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible while remaining socially distant, we are unable to provide seating for smaller groups. But let’s be real- wine is much more enjoyable when you can sit and savor it.

3 days to choose from! This event is listed for 3 days over the course of 2 different weekends, but your ticket is only good for one day- with an itinerary* provided. I know this deviates from how we’ve done events in the past, but we have to be able to stick to regulations and keep crowds to a minimum. Your group of 4 will be provided with an itinerary* for 6 different wineries to follow for your selected day. This helps keep all the tasting rooms compliant to current capacity limitations, not to mention makes the crowds almost nonexistent, thus exemplifying your experience.

Your itinerary* is incredibly important! Don’t worry- you’ll be able to select an itinerary* for the day you wish to come, from multiple options to boot, so you should be able to see your favorites! Again, this is to help keep the wineries from getting overwhelmed and accidentally becoming non-compliant throughout the day. It’s also a safety measure to keep a reasonable amount of people at 6 feet distances. Our numbers in the region are on the decline and we want to do our part to keep it that way! (See below for a further breakdown of how the itinerary works.)

What do you receive? Each bundle of 4 is $275, plus tax and service fee. All 4 of the folks within this bundle will receive:

  • a spring-inspired food dish large enough for at least 3 to 4 bites, if not more, at all 6 wineries
  • 4 wines presented with it, also at all 6 stops
  • a digital recipe book for all 13 food options
  • 2 full sets of all 13 potted plants, 26 in total, all bundled together to take home at your last stop
  • and a souvenir  wine glass to take home at your last stop

We know this event doesn’t look like they have in the past, but we think you’ll love the new and improved way we’re bringing these to you! We also ask that you respect the efforts we’ve put in to bring you this event in the safest way possible by also doing your part and wear your mask, stay 6 feet from other groups, and travel within your “covid crew.”

**List of plants in the full set: Alyssum, Dianthus, 2 types of Begonias, Coleus, Dusty Miller, Impatiens, 3 varieties of Marigolds, and 2 varieties of Petunias.**


*Itinerary FAQ:

This is a whole new concept so I wanted to break it down as much as I could. This is also THE MOST important part of the day and I want to make sure it’s as clear and simple as possible.

  • As mentioned above, we’re doing itineraries to help everyone out. This is the only way to keep each tasting room in compliance at all times of the day. If you’ve attended one of our events in the past, you know that it can get quite crowded at all hours. I know that that’s part of the fun for some, but it’s also 100% not safe right now. Safety is our #1 priority in this. Second is your experience and enjoyment!

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Lecture Description

The Anthropocene is characterized by overwhelming evidence of human impact on Earth’s climate and ecosystems.  In some cases, these impacts may be readily observed or even experienced firsthand. In others, the complexity of natural processes requires specialized technology to pinpoint the source and scale of the problem. What role does technology play in revealing these unseen connections on a changing planet? How can art help translate high-tech science into understanding and action? At the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, scientists have teamed up with visual artists to put the impacts of the Anthropocene into perspective. By transforming complex datasets into emotionally compelling art pieces, artists are helping scientists tell the complicated story of life on a changing planet.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!
