July 18, 2012 (Hammondsport, NY) – Here’s the tasting experience for those looking to try something unique to Heron Hill Winery in Hammondsport, NY. Every Sunday this summer through August, beginning July 22, Heron Hill Winery will now offer an option for those looking for an intimate setting in which to sample wine while still enjoying the social elements of winery ambiance. Savor the panoramic view of Keuka Lake from the elevated perspective of the Heron Hill Tower while one of Heron HiIl’s seasoned staff members guides you through tasting four premium wines paired with four types of cheese. The tasting will conclude with a specially selected fifth wine – something chosen for that given Sunday.
Heron Hill’s current wine tasting options range in price form $3-$5. The cost of the Tower Tasting Experience is $10 per person; participants will taste five wines and receive a Heron Hill stemless wine glass to take home. Tower Tastings will be conducted at 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm every Sunday; ten individual openings are available for each time slot. Reservations should be made in advance by calling the winery 800.441.4241 or in-person at the winery retail shop.
