One of our very favorite events at Deer Run Winery is our annual Picnic in the Vineyard. Dinner service and seating among the vines as the sun sets over the vineyard is quite a magical experience that you won't want to miss! This year is no exception as we have a delicious menu planned and perfectly paired with our award-winning wines. The meal and dinner service will be provided by Partyman Catering of Avon, N.Y., an A.C.E. awarded caterer! This year's menu will feature:
Appetizer: smoked salmon cucumber rolls with fresh dill paired with Traminette
Soup: chilled corn soup paired with Corot Noir
Salad: lemon basil orzo salad paired with Riesling
Entree: tarragon chicken with Chardonnay cream sauce paired with Chardonnay
Dessert: Conesus red raspberry ice cream with fresh mint paired with Conesus Red
If you’re a wine lover like us, you find very few things more enjoyable than drinking a glass of wine outdoors in the summertime. There’s something special about it: the condensation on your glass, the cool sweet, refreshing flavor of the bottle of Conesus White you just cracked open, the relaxation you feel as the wine buzz kicks in and sun shines on your face. There’s just something truly perfect about sipping on a glass of wine outside in the summertime.
We could go on forever about why we love our Thursday Night Summer concert series so much and why other’s are digging it too, but if we had to name a few things, it would look something like this:
For starters, you can not only drink wine outside, but you come to the winery and enjoy our wine on the lawn just yards from the vineyard where it was grown. You can bring your family, friends, and chairs all to one place, where you don’t have to cook or be responsible for entertaining. This experience is all about being present in the moment!
Don’t get us started on the tunes… Concert goers jam to the sweet music of local favorites like The Travis Prinzi Band or Noble Vibes, instead of hitting play on a wireless speaker.
We also have some of the best food vendors in the area hanging out serving up your favorites including Cheesed n Confused, 3 Legged Pig BBQ, and our 2019 Concert Series sponsor, Red Osier.
Basically, we could go on and on about all of the things we do for this series every Thursday evening, but music at Deer Run Winery is so much more than promoting our wines. The flavors and services our partners and bands help bring to you is an experience that is unique and so important for our community (and Rochester area) to take part in. These sorts of things don’t continue unless we support them!
