Heron Hill teaming up with Seneca White Deer

Heron Hill Winery is partnering with the Seneca White Deer, Inc. in an effort to raise awareness and funds to benefit the preservation of these unique and treasured animals. This collaboration will help to protect the special herd of White Deer that reside at the former Seneca Army Depot located on the eastern side of Seneca Lake.This fall and winter, $2 from every bottle of Heron Hill’s Semi-Dry Riesling sold at the winery and at their two tasting rooms will go directly to benefit the Seneca White Deer. This is the winery’s most popular wine as it exemplifies the bright fruit flavors, crisp acidity and the mineral characteristics that make the Finger Lakes the premier Riesling region in North America.Heron Hill Winery’s owner, John Ingle, is an avid conservationist and animal lover, saying “We’re honored to stand up for these unique and beautiful creatures and urge you to learn more about them and support our efforts to preserve them.” Dennis Money, President of Seneca White Deer, Inc., a not for profit organization dedicated to promoting ecotourism for a significant part of the Seneca Army Depot stated, “We applaud the support from Heron Hill Winery. Helping to promote our mission shows the environmental stewardship of the winery and their support for promoting tourism in the Finger Lakes.”The Environmental Stewardship Luncheon at the German House in Rochester, N.Y. on October 6, 2010 which is being hosted by Seneca White Deer, Inc. will mark the start of this fund raising partnership. The Semi-Dry Riesling will be available at all three locations; Heron Hill Winery on Keuka Lake, their tasting room on Seneca Lake and their newest tasting room in Bristol on the Canandaigua Wine Trail.For more information about Heron Hill Winery on Keuka Lake and their two tasting rooms on Seneca and Canandaigua Lakes, visit www.heronhill.com.
