Finger Lakes & The World Side-by-Side Tasting Series

Join Certified Sommelier, owner of Experience! The Finger Lakes, and Wine Marketing Instructor, Laura Winter Falk, PhD, as she shares wine from across the world paired with Finger Lakes wines in this limited four-part series. Learn about the different wine regions, the presented varietals, and the stories behind each wine, while experiencing sommelier-curated, locally-sourced food pairings to complement and enhance flavors. These tastings will showcase how the terroir dramatically impacts grape varietals, creating unique and complex flavors from region to region. Each experience is designed to learn for yourselves how Finger Lakes wines hold their own alongside some of the world’s finest.

Events will be held one Friday a month from 5PM – 7PM, July through October 2020, and will be hosted by Experience! The Finger Lakes and the Coltivare Culinary Center. This series is expected to be both fun and educational as we enjoy learning about the characteristics of wine from both home and abroad. After the tasting, enjoy dinner at Coltivare, where each wine tasting guest will receive a voucher for a complimentary dessert with the purchase of a dinner entreé that evening.
