Deck the Halls

2017 Deck the Halls with Seneca Lake Wineries…and The Christmas House

The 2017 events will again be held on TWO separate weekends, one in mid-November one in early December.

Ticket holders will go to your assigned starting winery and begin a weekend of fun and festivities while sampling holiday wines and food tastings. The wineries are decorated for the holiday season. Over the 2.5 day weekend event, visit the participating wineries, receive a recipe book and collect ornaments to decorate your handmade grapevine wreath. These events are both co-sponsored by The Christmas House, located in nearby Elmira, NY.

EACH TICKET includes a grapevine wreath and recipe book, to be picked up at your starting winery, then enjoy decorating your Christmas wreath with a unique ornament from each winery you visit (couples ticket share). Over 30 wineries are participating this year!

EACH PERSON receives a food and wine pairing at each participating winery. With the recipe book you will be able repeat the delectable wine/food combinations at home, introducing your friends and family to the pairings you most enjoyed!

You can go any one day, or come out for the whole weekend!

Tickets do not include lodging or transportation. Limited weekend packages with lodging and transportation included are available.

Ticket orders will be securely processed by Seneca Lake Wine Trailís online ticketing vendor.

The purchaser must visit their chosen starting winery, show photo ID with the purchasers name, to pick up actual card stock tickets. If you have any questions about our e-ticketing system, please call the Seneca Lake Wine Trail office during regular business hours at 877–536–2717.

Tickets purchased are not refundable, exchangeable or changeable and the winery you chose to start at when purchasing your tickets cannot be altered. Seneca Lake Wine Trail events are never cancelled.

There is a trail-wide special event policy for ticket holders attending these weekend events that as long as you travel in a group of 23 or less people, you will not need to make an appointment at the participating wineries. However as of 2013, we no longer accept large groups of 24 or more people during either weekend of Deck the Halls.

Each attendee will enjoy a complimentary sample of the dish served by the winery, paired with a sample of wine intended to complement that dish best. With so many wineries participating in our events, attendees oftentimes visit many wineries in a day, therefore entire flights of wine samples are not served by each winery during the event.
