Heron Hill Winery is partnering with Seneca White Deer in an effort to raise awareness and funds to benefit the preservation of these unique and treasured animals. This fall and winter of 2010-2011, $2 from every bottle of Heron Hill’s Semi-Dry Riesling will go directly to benefit the Seneca White Deer.
This is the winery’s most popular wine, as it exemplifies the bright fruit flavors, crisp acidity and the mineral characteristics that make the Finger Lakes the premier Riesling region in North America.
Heron Hill Winery’s owner, John Ingle, an avid conservationist and animal lover, says “We’re honored to stand up for these unique and beautiful creatures and urge you to learn more about them and support our efforts to preserve them.”
Dennis Money, President of SWD stated, “We applaud the support from Heron Hill Winery. Helping to promote our mission shows the environmental stewardship of the winery and their support for promoting tourism in the Finger Lakes.”
The Semi-Dry Riesling will be available at all three locations: Heron Hill Winery on Keuka Lake, their tasting room on Seneca Lake and their newest tasting room in Bristol on the Canandaigua Wine Trail, as well as online. For more information about Heron Hill Winery on Keuka Lake and their two tasting rooms on Seneca and Canandaigua Lakes, visit www.heronhill.com.

Rochester’s German House was packed for Seneca White Deer’s first Annual Environmental Stewardship Awards luncheon on October 6th.
SWD President Dennis Money presented the inaugural awards to Jim Howe, Executive Director of the Central and Western New York Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, and to Leo Roth, the award-winning writer and columnist for the Rochester Democ-rat and Chronicle. In his remarks, Money said, “These two outstanding individu-als personify the core values that Seneca White Deer stands for: preservation of valuable open space, protection of habitat and outdoor recreational opportunities.”
