VIP Vertical Wine Tasting at Standing Stone

Standing Stone Saparavi Vertical Tasting

Join us for a very special event -- our VIP tour experience at Standing Stone Vineyards' Vertical Tasting Series.

Experience! The Finger Lakes is thrilled to partner with Standing Stone Vineyards to offer guests an exciting afternoon of wine tasting. There will be six different events hosted at Standing Stone between March and November 2013. Each vertical tasting will feature several different vintages of the same variety offered by the vineyard.  Standing Stone pulls wines from the tanks or barrels as you taste back through the years.  

Guests will be invited to compare the difference between aged wine and "young" wine, as well as the unique flavors created in each vintage by different growing conditions. This tasting event illustrates how the characteristics of wine changes with age.  Each vertical tasting is enhanced with food pairings created by Danos on Seneca.

In addition to the regular event, Experience! The Finger Lakes' guests will enjoy VIP benefits not available to the general public, including a special vineyard tour of the featured varietal. The VIP package also includes your choice of bottle from the tasting to take home.

With only 13 seats available for each date, this tour is sure to sell out, so make sure to book early to ensure your place at the tasting table!
