Wine Country Insider - December 2, 2011

We continue to usher in the holiday season in Finger Lakes Wine Country this weekend with many exciting events. Both the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail are hosting their second weekends of holiday festivities, Corning lights up with a beloved annual event, and two of our museums offer free admission.

The Seneca Lake Wine Trail welcomes ticket holders to Deck the Halls and Cayuga Lake Wine Trail is hosting the Holiday Shopping Spree. These annual wine trail events both feature wine, food, and plenty of holiday cheer. Tickets may still be available for the Holiday Shopping Spree. Visit for details.

Deck the Halls is sold out, but you can still take advantage of all the excitement on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail this winter with the Polar Passport. The Polar Passport offers complimentary tasting at participating wineries along the trail. Details can be found at

The Crystal City Christmas celebrations are in full swing and tomorrow is the popular event, Sparkle. Sparkle is a street fair filled with twinkling lights, hot chocolate, plenty of festive entertainment, and every example of why this is in fact the most wonderful time of the year! Sparkle is free to attend and is not to be missed! More can be found at

While Sparkle is an evening celebration, during the day you are urged to attend the Holiday Open House at The Corning Museum of Glass. The museum is offering free admission, activities for the kids, and of course, an opportunity to see the 14 foot glass ornament tree - and do some great holiday shopping in the Glass Market. More information can be found at

Across the Chemung River, the Rockwell Museum of Western Art is hosting a Jewelry Trunk Show and sale as well as having their Treasures Under the Tree, Holiday Toy Exhibit, on display. On Sundays throughout the winter month, the Rockwell Museum of Western Art offers free admission. More information can be found at

This is just a taste of all the holiday fun taking place in the region this weekend. For a full listing of events, things to do, places to eat, and where to stay, visit
