March 16 Knapp Vineyards, A Viking Feast Wine Dinner
Leprechauns, Guinness stews, bag pipes, green clothes are not what you will expect at this lavish wine dinner. To celebrate Irish cuisine we found that a Viking settlement in the Wood Quay area of Dublin turned out significant information on the diet of the people that lived in this area. Beef and pork along with shellfish and poultry lavished the banquet tables of the Vikings. Later potatoes were a staple crop for Ireland along with cabbage dishes, stews and bacon. Expect a feast made for a Viking. Each course will be paired with two wines from Knapp Winery, Zugibe Vineyards or Glenora Wine Cellars. Please purchase your tickets on line to reserve your spot. www.knappwine.com

March 23 Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery, Vigneron Winemaking Workshops Begin.
What is a Vigneron? A Vigneron is a person who cultivates grapes for winemaking. Note: the "g" is silent. Also, a vigneron is a viticulturist but not all viticulturists are vignerons, since some grapes are grown for eating or juice making. The word is of French origin so some people literally translate it to English and call a vigneron a " wine grower." Therefore: Vigneron - a winegrower, or a person who grows grapes for winemaking. Vigneron #1....March 23/2013 Cost $100/person or $185 for both sessions, 20% off wine purchase that day. www.cayugaridgewinery.com
