Wine Country Insider through June 5, 2011

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! It's the unofficial kick-off to summer and we're celebrating with GlassFest this weekend in Finger Lakes Wine Country.  GlassFest is taking place now through Sunday in Corning's Gaffer District. Enjoy a wine and beer tasting tonight, along with live music and a celebration called Light up the Night! Market Street in Corning turns into a street festival tomorrow with glass artists, live demos, and many vendors. More information can be found at

Visiting the region for GlassFest? You can also take part in the final Riesling Month events throughout Wine Country. It's not too late to take advantage of free shipping on Riesling at many participating wineries too.  For further information on Riesling Month visit

Did you take part in Riesling Hour last night? Visit our Escape to the Finger Lakes podcast page on our website to check out the full 30-minute Pre Show with special guests from Fox Run Vineyards, Wagner Vineyards, Hunt Country Vineyards, Three Brothers Winery, and Red Newt Cellars. While there, listen to last week's Wine Country Insider all about Memorial Day Weekend happenings.
