    Meet the Brand Ambassador from Glenfiddich Single Malt »

    Our Glenfiddich Ambassador will lead guests through a deconstructed tasting of Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Reserva Rum Cask Finish as they explore the various elements and pioneering craft behind the remarkable whisky. Tracie Franklin was drawn into the world of single malt Scotch after tasting her first dram. The taste of malt, saline and fruity sweetness pushed her toward classes and whisky trainings with the best teachers in the community. Tracie is thrilled to have the opportunity to educate and inspire both new and experienced whisky drinkers alike in her new role with Glenfiddich.

    Meet the Winemaker from Giovanni Rosso! »

    Azienda Agricola Giovanni Rosso is a small, family-owned producer in the heart of the Barolo commune of Serralunga d'Alba. They make only red wines, and their passion is for Barolo and its great grape, Nebbiolo. In 2001 Giovanni's son, Davide, took charge of the vinification of the wines with one goal in mind: "Wine should be a perfect copy of its terroir"... in this case from the slopes of Serralunga d'Alba, among the finest soils in the world. We look forward to featuring some great wines from this highly rated producer!

    Italian Wines from Tenuta Il Palagio »

    When Sting and and his wife, Trudie, first came across the Villa Il Palagio in 1999, it had by then fallen into a state of disrepair. They set about the task of lovingly restoring the house, the outbuildings and the land to their former glory. We will be featuring wines from their vineyards to be presented by Brand Ambassador, Ted Satinsky.

    Buffalo Distilling Company »

    In the hills outside of town, where the pavement turns to dirt, Buffalo Distilling Company began hand-crafting One Foot Cock Bourbon Whiskey and One Foot Cock Apple Brandy on our New York State Farm Distillery. Staying true to Buffalo's tradition of hard-working, roll-up your sleeves ingenuity, we have designed and engineered our custom pot still, steam system and mash tank. You will not find another distillery like ours - we are truly one of a kind. Meet Head Distiller, Kevin Ford.

    Lakewood Vineyards »

    Lakewood Farm is located on the west side of Seneca Lake, with east-facing slopes gently leading down to the shores. Owned and operated by the Stamp family since 1951, the vineyard’s first grapes were sold to Welch's Grape Juice Company in 1955. As the economic climate for small commercial grape producers became challenging, the Stamps took the next step and began producing and selling wine made from their grapes.
