Cayuga Lake Wine Trail’s 21st Annual Holiday Shopping Spree

Start off Cayuga Lake Wine Trail’s annual Holiday Shopping Spree with a souvenir wine glass and grapevine wreath, and decorate it with keepsake wine bottle ornaments collected from each of the trail’s 17 wineries, a reminder of your favorite wines like MistleToe Magic from Lucas, Sheldrake Point's Dry Rose, and new to the trail, Toro Run's Gruner Veltliner. Enjoy wine and food pairings, holiday recipes, shopping – and receive a weekend shopper’s card to save $5 off a $35 wine purchase at each winery. This year's event runs two weekends, November 21-23 and December 5-7.

Start your weekend by visiting Montezuma, Long Point, King Ferry and Six Mile Creek wineries on Friday. On Saturday morning, visit King Ferry and Long Point Wineries for their Early Bird Opening and then travel along the trail to visit the rest of the 17 wineries.
