Spring Wine & Cheese Weekend, April 26-28, 2013

First Block Spaces: 20
Open: 17
(Dec 15)

This is an incredibly popular event, combining the classic tastes of wine and cheese into one delectable weekend.

This weekend event, like all our wine and food pairing events, is a great opportunity for people to experience a vast diversity of food/wine combinations. Wine is rarely consumed alone, and what specific food you eat with a given wine greatly impacts the tastiness of each. So this weekend is a terrific chance for you to sample an incredible variety of combinations and, when you find a wine/food pair that really lights up your palate, you can buy a few bottles of the wine for later, buy the locally made cheese used in that recipe, then prepare the food at home using the recipe book, and introduce your friends and family to that particularly delightful combination.

The trip includes:
* Wine Tasting Ticket for 30 wineries over 2 days
* One day bus tour to 6-8 wineries (Saturday)
* Two nights shared hotel accommodation (Friday & Saturday)
* Lodging at Budget Property in top 10% of TripAviser (example: Microtel Geneva).
* Reservations for group dinner at gourmet restaurant (cost of dinner not included) (Saturday)
* Optional Self Drive/Hike in Watkins Glen Gorge (Sunday AM)
* Optional Self Drive wineries Sunday afternoon

The hotel is between 5-6 hours drive from New York, Boston, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Montreal and Philadelphia. It is a 3-4 hour drive from Toronto.

1. $325/person based on shared accommodation.

2. Single Supplement (Private Room): Add $125/person
3. Three Friend Discount (3 Share 1 Room): Less $35/person
4. Four Friend Discount (4 Share 1 Room): Less $60/person

The initial block is 20 seats. These will sell out well before the trip date. To secure a place please RSVP and email us at [masked] and reference the Seneca Lake trip. A confirmed spot requires a $75 deposit. The deposit is refundable until March 22, 2013. Further blocks may be opened up at a later time.

As with all our trips - if you are a single traveler you will be matched with a same gender room mate. Provided you book 1 month before, the traveler is not responsible for searching for a roommate. Of course if you have a preferred person to share with, then matching is not necessary.

All prices in USD, for our friends from Toronto & Montreal, prices would be the same in CAD based on current exchange rates.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
