New York Wine & Culinary Center—Canandaigua, NY

Taste New York. That's the call to action put out by this world-class attraction in New York's Finger Lakes. Imagine tasting the best of New York state in one place. That's the idea behind the New York Wine & Culinary Center, a one-of-a-kind gateway to foods, wines, brews, and other agricultural products made and grown in New York.

Be a student "chef" and take a cooking class with a professional chef instructor in the hands-on kitchen; or sip and learn about New York vintages from a sommelier in the educational theater.

You can also try a flight of New York state beer, wine or spirits in the Tasting Room, or enjoy lunch or dinner at the Upstairs Bistro, where chefs put the spotlight on New York state ingredients. The Upstairs Bistro Food Truck delivers that same exciting passion for food at events throughout the region.
