From Franziska Doerflinger:

On the last Sunday before the start of the fall semester, the SOHO graduate student club invited the department on a wine tour around Keuka Lake. This smaller one of the Finger Lakes has a wonderful ambience and fantastic wines.

The tour bus with more than 25 graduates students, faculty, staff and others stopped at Keuka Lake Vineyards, McGregor Vineyards, and Ravines Wine Cellars on the east side of the lake. After those three stops the wonderful lunch prepared by the SOHO social chair Cheni Filios was prepared just outside the tasting room at Ravines Wine Cellar. A wide variety of amazing homemade foods and do-it-yourself sandwiches prepared the group for the second round on the west side of Keuka Lake.

The afternoon went fast with a short stop at Heron Hill Winery and last but not least Hunt Country Vineyards. The last stop surprised us with a guided tour through the winemaking facilities and good explanations of how to make wine. Overall, the tour was a great success with participants from Ithaca and Geneva. Especially appreciated was the participation of so many of the new students.
