Reading over the e-newsletter from the New York State Wine and Culinary Center in Canandaigua, I noticed that there is a lot on the spring agenda relating to new classes and wine experiences.
I picked out one event of interest. Golden Award Experience
is a competition that allows consumers to award the best wines from the Finger Lakes region. The New York Wine & Culinary Center will host the event on June 4, 2011. Consumers will learn techniques of wine judging from local winemakers, and then award medals during a professionally-run competition. In addition to the awarding of gold, silver and bronze medals, a special “Finger Lakes Riesling Champion” will be crowned by consumer judges.
