I know there are a lot of foodies out there who love cheese because of the number of visitors reading my post on last year’s October Artisinal Cheese Open House.  Now cheese and wine lovers will rejoice to hear that the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail is pairing with the Keuka Lake Wine Trail in what promises to be a delectable weekend that’s sure to please every foodie’s palate!

Attendees await a delightful wine and cheese pairing at each winery

On April 9 and 10, participants on this Artisan Cheese and Wine Weekend on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail will receive a souvenir glass, food and artisan cheese samples as well as 32 wines to taste along the trail. They’ll also have the opportunity to meet the cheese makers, learn about the process by which the cheese is made and purchase samples of their favorites! All ticket holders will also be entered to win a one-night stay for two at the charming Inn at Esperanza Mansion, a sightseeing cruise aboard the Esperanza Rose, and a bottle of wine from each winery on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and ticket prices are $25 for participants or $18.75 for designated drivers. On Sunday, the day starts at 11 a.m. and runs through 5 p.m. and tickets are $19 for participants and $14.25 for designated drivers. They may be purchased through the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, at your local Wegmans service desk or by calling 1(800) 440-4898.
