“The Twelve (Wine) Days Of Christmas” In The Beautiful Finger Lakes!


While not a traditional “single venue festival” this annual event brings a large number of visitors to Upstate New York during the holidays.

Back by popular demand, 11 specific wineries will be selling limited edition bottles of wine, counting down the 12 Days of Christmas, with delicious, Seneca Lake wines! The final bottle can be obtained at our event co-sponsor, The Christmas House, in nearby Elmira, N.Y.

This popular holiday event celebrates the beauty, and magic of the Finger Lakes as one of New York’s top destination sites as well as focusing on the ever-growing wine industry as one of the Top Three industries in the state.
