Join us for a special evening, as our sommelier, Steffen Rasch, guides us through the history and wine making traditions of New York's Finger Lakes Wine Region — one of the fastest growing wine regions in the U.S. Already known for its razor-sharp dry Rieslings and savory Cabernet Francs, wine makers in this exciting, emerging region are continuing to push the envelope for what is possible to grow in this cool climate. Come and enjoy some great wines from some of the best producers paired with Champe's delicious cuisine.
