Christmas Around the World On The Lake Ontario Wine Trail

, Finger Lakes | Festivals & Annual Events , Food & Drink

During their annual Christmas Around the World weekend event (December 2 and 3, 2017), you’ll get to sample the award-winning wine, cider and spirits that the Lake Ontario Wine Trail is known for.

The trail features eight stops, each one representing a different country. Each offers a festive food and beverage pairing -- matching their wine, cider or spirits with traditional holiday dishes from the respective country.

This winter weekend in the Finger Lakes region allows one to travel “around the world” on a self-guided tour. Event tasting passports are visas to culinary treats and craft beverages at all eight stops. These passports, valid for both days, can be bought online or at the first stop on the Trail, for $20.

The event location on this page is merely one of the stops on the trail.
