Elmira (WENY) - Finger lakes wine, cheese and free samples everywhere. What could be better on a cold winter night like tonight. WENY-TV's annual Wine on Ice event kicked off tonight. With hundreds making their way on to the ice at first arena. Wine vendors stole the show of course, but there were also vendors offering cheeses, salsa, and even chocolate truffles. Event Director Margaret Lawrence says the event is a great way to have fun during the winter season, but it's also a great way to keep business flowing for local wineries.
“This is a great opportunity for the wineries, it's a slow time of year and its great to have the opportunity to sell to a lot of people. We get around 4,500 people here over two days, and its great for the customers too because so many wineries are under one roof,” says Lawrence.
Wine on ice continues tomorrow with two sessions. The first from noon to 4 and the second from 6 to 10 o'clock.
