Made in Ithaca Luscious Libations Tour
The Made in Ithaca Luscious Libations Tour is the perfect excursion for guests who would like to experience the wonderful wines, beers and spirits of our region in a 3.5 hour tour. On this tour, we feature three stops around Ithaca that are home to producers of sensational spirited libations that are based on the bounty of offerings in the Finger Lakes.
We first stop at Ports of New York, where Frederic Bouche' continues the tradition of wine making that his father started in Normandy, France. Learn how Frederic makes his fabulous elegant white and red ports, share in an intimate tasting paired with selected items, and explore his family's history of wine making in France through his personal museum collection.
Our next stop is Six Mile Creek Winery, Ithaca's own boutique winery. We will learn about Finger Lakes winemaking and what makes their vineyard different than the wineries on the lake. We will taste their classic Finger Lakes varietals, and have the opportunity to taste their full line of unique grape-based spirits, distilled in a traditional Italian style right at the winery--truly a special treat.
Our last stop is the tavern at the Ithaca Coffee Company. The tavern always has a number of local beers on tap including brews from Ithaca's own Ithaca Beer Company. We'll enjoy a tasting that range from lighter pilsners and hoppy ales to fuller body porters, as well as seasonal beers.
