The event hours are Friday, June 13th from 12pm-5pm, Saturday, June 14th from 10am-5pm, and Sunday, June 15th from 12pm-5pm.

Some of the featured pairings during the event include Yancy’s Fancy Peppadew Cheddar paired with Riesling at Eveningside Vineyards, a Bergonost cheese paired with Chateau Niagara Winery’s Semi-Dry Riesling, and a choice of either Siegfried (for a dry palate), Riesling (semi dry), and Catawba (sweet) wines with Double Cream Cheddar at Schulze Vineyards. A full list of pairings and participating wineries can be found on the wine trail’s events page.
