Let your cup runneth over with today's side deal: for $30, you get a wine tasting with culinary pairings for two, plus a Finger Lakes destination and wine card (a $70 total value) from Finger Lakes Wine Trail. The wine tasting takes place at the Lyons Mansion, located in the Rochester Academy of Medicine on East Avenue from 6 to 8:30 pm on Tuesday, February 1.
Finger Lakes is a globally renowned region that reclines along gently sloping hills containing a plethora of vineyards and wineries. A Finger Lakes destination and wine card offers discounts to 57 regional luxury destinations, updates on wine events, and a monthly wine newsletter ($10, valid until the end of 2011). Kickoff a grape-based pilgrimage with a pal during a wine tasting and pairing on Tuesday, February 1. Local wineries Atwater Vineyards, Red Tail Ridge Winery, and Red Newt Cellars will indulge guests with bountiful brews, including Red Newt's Circle riesling, named top wine pick for under $15 by Wine Spectator. The first hour of Finger Lakes' tasting is dedicated to white wines, while the second hour uncorks a variety of visceral reds (a $30 value per person). Cobblestone Creek's Executive Chef Brad Yearwood deftly pairs tastings with culinary masterpieces such as beef carpaccio, leek-wrapped ahi tuna cubes, and eggplant crisps.
