The world’s most noble grape deserves a grand celebration!
And after the past year? So do the rest of us.
It’s time for a Riesling fete, to welcome the wine world back to the Finger Lakes both in person and virtually!
Ready to say hello to old and new (vaccinated) friends? In-depth tastings, seminars, carousing dinners, restorative beer, and all manner of wine geekery await. And for those unable to attend in person or wishing to stay in their pajamas? A virtual conference unlike any other is ready to stream to you, with opportunities to get many of the same seminar wines delivered to the comfort of your home.
Sign up for email updates and stay tuned for more details on attending in person or online. We cannot wait to see you all again, and this gathering of producers, academics, Masters of Wine, writers, beverage professionals, and Riesling enthusiasts promises to deliver!
