To top off the experience Christian Theron, chocolate-maker extraordinaire, will have a selection of chocolates to enjoy with the wine.

Afterwards, the tour will head to the newly-opened Coltivare restaurant in Ithaca, where guests will experience a private 3-course wine dinner.  Coltivare restaurant is part of a state-of-the-art culinary center operated by Tompkins-Cortland Community College featuring locally sourced ingredients combined with global flavors to create the ultimate Farm-to-Bistro experience.
