Tickets are $30 per person per day and include the cheese sample and three tastes of wine at each participating winery.

Participating wineries include A Gust of Sun, Honeymoon Trail Winery, Lake Ontario Winery, Leonard Oakes Estate Winery, Liten Buffel, Long Cliff Vineyard and Winery, Schulze Vineyards and Winery, Schwenk Wine Cellars, Victorianbourg Wine Estate, Vizcarra Vineyards at Becker Farms and the Winery at Marjim Manor.

‘Taste and Paint’
The next “Taste and Paint” workshop will be held at The Winery at Marjim Manor at 2 p.m. June 13. For $35, participants receive all the materials, refreshments and a glass of wine for those over 21.
Teri Seddon will be the instructor. In about two hours, she will take participants from blank canvas to finished artwork. The painting will be “A Tree of Life.” Seddon will guide artists through creating a tree, then each person can add what makes it personal for them. In the past, people have added birds, animals and leaves. Some have added swings or a picnic scene. Each painting is unique.
Reservations are strongly suggested. They can be made online at www.MarjimManor.com or by calling the winery at 716-778-7001.
