The Little Red Wagon is back! The Little Red Wagon will be providing delicious entrees for our event at our host winery this year.  They do a lot of  dietetic or veggie options for those of you who like salads or wraps and not the traditional hamburger and fries fare.  But they have that too!

Cheers from Kay Boniface as she relaxes at the new Boundary Breaks Vineyards with her three hounds, Sabrina, Dakota and Geyser.  Boundary Breaks is not far from our main location in Ovid.

Bille Axell photography took this special photo of Stephanie and Ron Miles' two hounds, Daisy Mae and Kenny, as Kenny was getting to know his biological brother.  A special moment on Seneca Lake!

New York-Phase One Starts June 12th

The New York wineries are in phase one of reopening right now.  Wine tastings inside the wineries have reopened but with many rstrictions.  For example, you must use a glass washed in the winery's dish washer.  All tastings are done sitting down at a table.

We look for new, less restrictive Phase Two rules to come out in about two weeks. 

Different Rules this Year  This year's event will be different from previous years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We will need to follow the rules set for by the New York State commission on alcoholic beverages.   Unfortunately, we don't know now what those rules may be.   

At this time we cannot tell you what the rules will be in Phase Two or more likely, Phase Three, for our event.  It is very likely that we won't know what the wine tasting or restaurant rules will be for the Finger Lakes until the week of July 13th.   Stay tuned and we'll keep you posted.
