Seneca White Deer Board members will join Heron Hill Winery for the release of a new wine to benefit Seneca White Deer, Inc. The new blend, named Save the White Deer, blends unoaked Chardonnay with wild-fermented Riesling. With each bottle sold of the wine, $2 will go directly to benefit the Seneca White Deer, Inc (SWD). The wine will be released in all three Heron Hill tasting rooms on Saturday, May 7th, 2016.
SWD board members will visit all three Heron Hill tasting rooms from 12 PM to 4 PM to answer your questions and provide information about the future vision to establish a world-class ecotourism destination at the former Seneca Army Depot. Heron Hill Winery and owners John and Josephine Ingle have actively supported SWD since 2010.
Save the White Deer wine is a blend of 72% Riesling (from Ingle Vineyard on the west side of Canandaigua Lake) and 28% Chardonnay; this semi-dry blend is a refreshing wine to enjoy in the spring and summer. Beginning May 7, Save the White Deer wine will be available to purchase online at wwww.heronhill.com and in all three Heron Hill tasting rooms including Heron Hill Winery in Hammondsport, Heron Hill Tasting Room at Bristol in Canandaigua, and Heron Hill Tasting Room on Seneca Lake in Himrod.
