Private Sommelier-Led Wine Tasting Tour in the Finger Lakes with Lunch

by The Sommelier Company Duration 6h 30m Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $1

Set out for a relaxing, hands-on, and educational wine appreciation tour with a certified sommelier and wine country expert as your guide. Sample regional varietals, linger over an al fresco lunch among the vines, and tour the cellar and winemaking facility of a renowned estate with a local vintner.

After you’re picked up from your hotel, ride through the countryside to your first destination. On the way, your sommelier discusses the principal grapes grown in the region, the way that climate and terroir impact the characteristics of the area’s wines, and how to differentiate the type of grape—both on the vine and in the glass.

At the first estate, the owner leads you on an informative tour of the cellar and winemaking facilities. Learn all about traditional viticultural methods and modern technologies, and then sample an array of the winery’s bottles as your sommelier leads a discussion comparing each glass.

All that sipping and swirling is sure to work up an appetite, so sit down to a gourmet lunch among the vines. As you nibble on fresh and local fare, chat about the art and science of selecting wines to complement various dishes and flavor profiles.

Walk off your meal with a stroll around the property, learning about the care and upkeep of the vines before a fun and thought-provoking blind tasting. Your final stop of the day is at another renowned winery, where you participate in a formal wine and cheese pairing before returning to your hotel.
