CORFU, NY — The Finger Lakes Wine Festival has sewed up its presenting sponsor for the next three years.
Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese will continue in that role, according to an agreement announced by the cheese maker and Watkins Glen International which hosts the annual event.
“Yancey’s Fancy has been essential in growing the Finger Lakes Wine Festival over the last five years and we are thrilled that they are returning for another three,” Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International, said in a prepared statement.
The Corfu cheese producer became involved with the festival in 2005 as the title sponsor of the “Launch of the Lakes” kickoff party. The 2011 festival will be held July 15-17.
