New York Wine and Culinary Center in CanandaiguaMy adventurous friend, Mary, invited me to join her for a daytrip to Canandaigua, about an hour and half north of here, to check out the New York Wine and Culinary Center. I didn't even know it existed. We are lucky to have it in our backyard.
Turns out it opened in 2006 and is situated at the northern tip of Canandaigua lake, at the lower end of Main street. It's new construction of New York state materials, and funded by the owners of Constellation Brands, the Wegman family, and RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology).
list of classes looks interesting. Would be fun to take a class when family or friends visit us at the lake, especially on a rainy day.
We enjoyed a leisurely lunch at a corner table and had the place to ourselves because it was a cold, rainy Thursday in the off-season.
We thought it was well worth the visit. It is an excellent resource to know about in our area.
