Cayuga Wine Trail Agriculture Appreciation Week
On August 5-11, all 14 of their member wineries will be offering Buy One Get One tastings during each of the designated weeks. Grab a friend, and your work badge (or some form of valid documentation), to start taking advantage of this promotion. Only one of you needs to work in the field to do this! You’ll also be given an “appreciation card” to keep with you all week. Each winery will stamp that you’ve been there. Turn this in at the end of the week (or day if you know you’ll only be out once) and the wine trail office will mail you a goodie depending on how many you visit (4, 8, 12, or all 14).
