By far the most popular thing that happens at both A Gust of Sun locations are our wine tastings! Most of the year we will have upwards of 20 wine varieties to sample that range from dry to sweet, reds & whites, and wines made from vinifera, hybrid, and North American grape varieties. We offer two different tasting options:
$6 for 5 tastes of wine
Wine & Chocolate pairing:
$8 for 5 tastes of wine with each taste paired with a piece of gourmet Belgian chocolate bark, crafted locally by Stuffed Chocolates from WNY. Each chocolate was designed by Stuffed Chocolates to pair with one of our wines. With 10 varieties of chocolate so far, the chocolate pairing has become incredibly popular!
Explore the Grounds!
17 acres of beautiful grounds surround the winery. In the warmer months, customers are invited to picnic on the lawn, or near our large koi pond filled with hundreds of fish, or beneath our large party tent. There are Adirondack-style chairs and tables spread throughout the property to allow you to relax and enjoy a glass of wine, or a bottle of wine with your party. The grounds are generally open to the public during our open hours, but can also be booked for large parties or celebrations. See the "Book Private Events" link above for more info. Outside food is permitted, but no outside alcohol, please.
Enjoy our Lounge!
Above the tasting room is our cozy and relaxing Harmon-->E lounge. With comfortable chairs, interesting books and games, a great view of the property and vineyard, the lounge is always a great place to hang out all year long. Also incorporated into the lounge walls are surround sound speakers for music, plus a built-in projector and screen, linked to a computer and media players for hosting a movie night, a business meeting, hosting classes, etc. Birthday parties, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, fundraisers, Thank you parties, and other get-togethers have al been booked over the years in the Harmon-->E lounge. The lounge is generally open to the public during our open hours, but can also be booked for large parties or celebrations. See the "Book Private Events" link above for more info.
