Attention Alfred State Alumni – Ready to get out of the house? Join us for the Chocolate & Wine Pairing Tour, Seneca Lake.
This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day early! You can join us for the day or make a weekend of it.
Tickets may be used from Feb. 8 – 10, but the Alfred State Alumni Council offers the opportunity for alumni and guests to board one of two buses in Geneva on Saturday, Feb. 9 and visit several wineries. (Should you decide to visit wineries on Friday or Sunday, you cannot attend the wineries on the itinerary for the weekend).
Buses will meet all guests at the following location by 9:30 a.m.:

The full itinerary for both will not be received until two weeks prior to the event. However, some of the wineries that have been requested we visit are following:
Aside from the winery where we will be starting, we will be visiting The Inn at Glenora Wine Cellars where we will have lunch. Cost for the wine tour and lunch is $55 per person. Each alum may register up to three guests.
