Located in the heart of the picture-perfect Finger Lakes region, the New York Wine & Culinary Center is a stimulating showcase for the wines, agricultural products, and culinary traditions of New York State. Opened in 2006, the center quickly became known for its innovative exhibitions, hands-on cooking classes, wine education classes, and inspiring culinary experiences.

An exhibit hall, paneled with recycled 100-year-old redwood wine barrels, highlights New York’s unique agricultural heritage with engaging, interactive displays. A wine-tasting bar allows visitors to sample award-winning wines from all regions of the state. Upstairs the stellar Taste of NY restaurant serves seasonal dishes paired with fine New York wines and microbrewed beers.

The center also offers informative, entertaining culinary classes for people of all skill levels. A recent schedule included classes such as Personal Winemaking 101, New England Clam Bake, and a Knife Skills Workshop.

Open year-round. Check the website below for hours. Fee for classes and wine tastings.
