Chef-Somm Dinner Blew Us Away!

We had an amazing experience with Sommelier Laura and Chef Scott for a custom food and wine pairing dinner at our rented home in the finger lakes. They came to us creating a six course meal with six wines exquisitely prepared, served and described throughout the evening in our own kitchen and dining room. This event was the highlight of a fantastic weekend. The professionalism, care, knowledge and creativity blew us away. We highly recommend Experience! The Finger Lakes.

Terrific Chef-Sommelier Pop-Up Meal

We had a terrific chef-sommelier pop-up meal at Hound & Mare in Ithaca. The food was spectacular and made even more so with the perfect wine pairings. We discovered wines that we will now seek out and Scott Riesenberger is a chef to follow.

So Easy to Work With

I worked with Laura to plan a private wine dinner for a client's bachelorette weekend. Laura was very communicative about the process and the booking. One of the women is a very plain eater, and Laura and Scott went above and beyond to ensure she had something to eat even if it wasn't on the evening menu. The ladies had a great time and the bride was thrilled that Laura and Scott had prepared such an amazing meal + wine pairing. From a travel advisor perspective, Laura was so easy to work with, very transparent about the evening, and my clients were so happy that I definitely have Laura on speed dial for any future Finger Lakes travelers!

– Sarah, Luxury Travel Advisor

The entire evening was a delight. Food was incredible and wine pairing was inventive and spot on. We could not have asked for a better experience. We will do this again.
