Twelve area restaurants to host wine tasting Saturday evening

Heron Hill's new limited edition Riesling wine with Big City Summer Fest label offered for taste testing

Rochester, N.Y. (July 16, 2007) What makes a perfect summer wine? Wine tasters at 12 area restaurants can make that decision this Saturday evening when they sample Big City Summer Fest, a limited edition semi-dry Riesling wine from Heron Hill Winery.

Heron Hill's special Riesling comes from the slopes of western Keuka Lake, where you can find some of the oldest vinifera vines in the Finger Lakes region. A major sponsor of Rochester's newest month-long series of music fests, Heron Hill developed the Big City Summer Fest label to celebrate the first year of the festival.

"We're excited about the enthusiasm for this wine", said John Ingle, owner of Heron Hill. "Over 300 cases were sold to Rochester area restaurants and liquor stores before The Big City Summerfest even opened." Wine tastings will be at the following 12 restaurants: Solera, Grille at the Strathallan, Sinbad's, Tapas, Beale Street Caf -S Ave, Distillery-Mt Hope, Triphammer, Scotch and Sirloin, Pomadoro and Hogan's. Reservations for dinner may be required. For more information, please go to  or call the restaurant.

Big City Summer Fest's Riesling will also be available at the World Beat festival in High Falls from July 19-21 and at the Ribbin' on the River festival near Court Street Bridge from July 26-28. It is also available in over 50 restaurants and liquor stores in the Rochester area. For a complete listing, go to

"We've got some really remarkable music during World Beat, and our sponsors are making it possible for everyone to hear it by subsidizing free concerts and low ticket prices. Our businesses and city and county governments have definitely stepped up to the plate to support Rochester's love of music," said Jeff Springut, producer and founder of Big City Summer Fest.

Supporters of Big City Summer Fest includes the City of Rochester Mayor Bob Duffy, NY State Senator Jim Alesi, Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks, LAMAR Outdoor Advertising, Heron Hill Vineyards, 13WHAM-TV, Labatt's, Budweiser, House of Guitars, Bryant and Stratton College, The Rochester Razorsharks, CUSTOMERicity, City Newspaper, the Clarion Hotel, the Button Factory and The Crowne Plaza.
