The Finger Lakes Food + Wine Buzz from Heron Hill's Tasting Room at Bristol

Heron Hill at Bristol has been buzzing with excitement for 2013. Our energetic staff remains the same from last year Joshua, Christopher, Chelsea, Debi, Stephanie and Cindy.  We have added two new employees, as well, Suzi and Torin.  Our customers are amazed at how beautiful our surroundings are and vow to come back again; and they are!  With the close proximity to Rochester, it is an easy day trip to bring out-of-town guests or a leisurely drive from Syracuse or Buffalo.  We are also beginning to notice many of our late afternoon customers are stopping before a concert at CMAC or dinner at the great restaurants residing in Canandaigua which is only 20 minutes away.

Our newest addition, Fridays after 5 with Wood Fired Pizza, 5:00 pm-9:00 pm, has been a huge success right from the start.  For the month of July and August on the 2nd and 4th Fridays, the sounds of live music and the smell of wood-fired pizza fills the air; neighbors and new friends alike share tables for an evening of fun.  We've already hosted two of these food & wine events, many people have attended both, and are looking forward to the next.  Each week we offer a different genre of music. Our customers have been excited and each band brings its own set of followers which exposes Heron Hill at Bristol to a new set of fans.  The setting creates a beautiful family event at a vineyard with music, people dancing, kids racing around….it’s just a great evening!  There are only 3 weeks left (August 9, August 23 and August 30th), so try to make it to Heron Hill at Bristol for an evening of fun.

On September 21st, our Third Annual Ingle Vineyard Harvest Festival (12:00–6:00 pm) will be held at our tasting room.  Music by DANG!, a country-rock band, wood-fired pizza, cider pressing, fresh popped popcorn, wine, beer and soda will be served.  This is a family event as well.  There is a baby pumpkin hunt, ring tosses and coloring station for the kids. Bring your lawn chairs and/or blankets, and spend a day at Heron Hill at Bristol.

We are now serving glasses of wine to enjoy outside overlooking the vineyard.  If you haven’t been in Heron Hill at Bristol on Ingle Vineyard, you are in for a wonderful surprise.  We look forward to seeing you.
