The Smith Opera House is pairing up with Billsboro Winery, Glenora Wine Cellars and Fox Run Vineyards to bring you Wine Weekend. The mini-festival will feature three wine-related films introduced by local wine experts, panel discussions after each film and, of course, tastings!
We kick off the mini film fest with MONDOVINO, the 2004 documentary by Jonathan Nossiter about the impact of globalization on the world’s different wine regions. The evening includes:
6:00 pm Tasting featuring Billsboro Winery’s Vinny Aliperti and Silver Thread Vineyards’ Paul Brock. Their wines will be available by the glass and by the bottle.
7:00 pm Screening of Mondovino with introduction by Vinny Aliperti.
9.30 pm Discussion immediately following film “The Local and Global Sides of Wine and Winemaking” with panelists Paul Brock (Finger Lakes Community College and Silver Thread Vineyards), Vinny Aliperti (Billsboro), and Chris Gerling (Cornell University).
This event is for 21 and older.
