Return of Wine Tasting Tent at 30th Owego Strawberry Festival

JUNE 18TH AND 19TH, 2010

Last Update: 6/03 10:04 am
The 30th Annual Owego Strawberry Festival has activities for people of every age. For the adult attendees, the Wine Tasting Tent is back by popular demand.

The Wine Tasting Tent is open this year on both Friday night from 5:30pm-10:00pm and Saturday from 9:30am-6:00pm. Popular NY wineries will be represented like Crooked Lake Winery, Glenora Wine Cellars, Knapp Vineyards Winery, Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, Hudson-Chatham Winery, Thousand Island Winery, and Villa Bellangelo. Also in the wine tent will be Laraysville Cheese Factory and Cabin Crafts (maker of wine gift bags).The Wine Tasting Tent will be located on the memorial square area in front of the beautiful Tioga County Courthouse overlooking the Susquehanna River. Admission is $5 per person and IDs will be checked at the door. Attendees are encouraged to sample wines at any of the vendors but to be responsible with consumption. Anyone who over indulges will be escorted from the premises.

Sealed bottles of wine will be for sale at each winery table and wine can be stored on site and picked up when you are ready to leave the festival for the day, so please feel free to purchase your favorites in any quantity. Many of these wines are difficult to find outside the actual winery so be sure to stock up at the festival!

Call the Tioga County Tourism office at 607-687-7440 for more information.
