• Huge lineup for Watkins Glen winefest

05 Jul

WATKINS GLEN– The 15th Finger Lakes Wine Festival, arguably the top event in the region each summer, has a banner lineup of participating wineries led by my personal favorite, Pompous Ass.

The irreverently-named Dundee winery, located just north of the Watkins Glen International race track festival venue, will join dozens of other wineries, food makers and vendors, brewers, chefs, craftsmen, musicians, seminar presenters and race track pace car drivers coming together to present the July 15-17 event.

You can download a free 81-page color brochure that explains every detail of the festival, as well as providing listings, maps, lodging and ticket information. Just click here.

And, you can see a list of the participating wineries and brewers after the jump.
