Most would agree that the Finger Lakes region is synonymous with wine. With wine trails winding through the area, wine lovers are never without something new to taste. Livingston County has its own Little Finger Lakes Wine Path, which features Eagle Crest and O-Neh-Da Vineyards—one of New York State’s oldest wineries.
Established over 140 years ago to produce “Wine that is Wine” for the Catholic Church by Bishop Bernard McQuaid, O-Neh-Da Vineyard still produces wine for churches of all faiths, while Eagle Crest Vineyards creates wines for folks of all kinds. The vineyards offer natural, pure grape wines from locally grown fruit and are also home to New York State’s oldest bald eagle nests.
Sustainable vineyard practices are also important to the vineyards. Eagle Crest wines are preserved and packaged in recycled glass, with soy-based inks and resealable Stelvin® closures, making them great for the environment as well as for the local economy.
In addition to making medal-winning wines, Eagle Crest Vineyards has branched out into making scrumptious wood-fired pizza. Those interested in trying Eagle Crest’s wine and pizza are in luck! This Wednesday, April 24, 2013, the Livingston County Chamber of Commerce Office of Tourism and Marketing hosts the Chamber After Hours at Eagle Crest Vineyards from 4-6 p.m. Come join in the fun for some wine, food, and networking. The event is free and open to the public. For more information on the After Hours event, click here.
