Personally this is my very favorite event held at Deer Run! This features dinner served by Partyman Catering outside in the vineyard and it is such a memorable and magical event, you do not want to miss this if your vacation dates correspond and line up with this event.
These are just a few fun things for you to do while visiting & enjoying our beautiful region! Summertime fun abounds in Western New York as residents are serious about having fun and packing as much activity into the summer calendar as possible! We hope to see you at one or more of our events listed above or feel free to stop by our tasting room for a wine sampling and take home some of the finest Finger Lakes wine around!
This past Saturday we had a good turnout for our annual Cinco de Maxo event and as promised here are the recipes we featured for our pairings:
Mexican Chicken Pinwheels paired with our Dry Riesling
Hot Bean Dip paired with Runway Red
Queso Dip paired with Vignoles
Mexican Brownies paired with Max Black. Please note that for the brownies, I used a Ghirardelli Brownie Mix and only added 1 egg following the box mix instructions which makes for a fudgier brownie, which is the way I like it! Also, I substituted the water needed with Max Black.
The Max Mexicana Sangria was made following this recipe and we used Max Black as the red wine base.
I am also going to re-mention a recipe shared with me a few years ago which I posted on the blog back in 2017. Dori's Chicken French made with our Vignoles. This is a delicious recipe that I mentioned to guests at the tasting bar who were interested in the recipe. Feel free to comment on the pairings and if there is ever a recipe that we sampled here that you wish us to share, feel free to contact us at email@example.com. We love to hear from our customers!

“Spring is natures way of saying, let’s party.” – Robin Williams
The spring season and warmer weather always creates opportunities for celebration. Whether it’s dinner outside, weddings, baby or bridal showers, or simply sitting in your favorite chair on the porch with a good book, there’s something about nice weather that brings out the best in everything. For us, a glass of wine is always the perfect addition to top off these special moments.
For events and relaxing moments alike, we are loving our 2017 Riesling. Why should you add this vintage to your next shindig or simply your fridge? Check out our top 5 reasons why it’s the perfect addition below.
We can certainly go on and on about why we love Riesling, but would rather you try it for yourself! Stop by our tasting room next time you’re in the area, order online or pick up one of our bottles at a liquor store near you.
