Hunt Country Vineyards has been donating 5 percent of all wine sales made during the month of April to the Finger Lakes Museum & Aquarium. It’s the beginning of a partnership between a local business and an organization that share a common mission for promoting and protecting the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes.
“We are thrilled to establish this partnership with the Hunts,” says Natalie Payne, executive director of FLM&A.
“It’s exciting to collaborate with an organization that shares our passion for both the cultural and natural history of the region,” says Suzanne Hunt, director of strategic development at Hunt Country Vineyards and a global consultant on renewable energy.
To top off the month-long partnership, Hunt Country Vineyards will feature entertainment by recording artists Bethany & Rufus at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at their winery at 4021 Italy Hill Road in Branchport.
Bethany Yarrow and Rufus Cappadocia are a voice and cello duo from Brooklyn who are deeply influenced by ceremonial music from around the world. Watching Bethany & Rufus together in concert is like watching two spirits weave a river of song, prayer, and dance of improvised melodies, ancestral incantations, and ecstatic groove.
