VINTNERS & VALENTINES HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR MARCH 6, 2020. Finger Lakes Community College Foundation will present Vintners & Valentines, a fundraiser for the viticulture and wine technology and hospitality programs at Finger Lakes Community College. Intended as a winemaker's dinner, showcasing Finger Lakes wineries, each table will be hosted by a local winery (winemaker or assistant winemaker).
