Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …. did you know …..

… that downtown Syracuse continued to grow as the center of the city, which by the pre-World War II days, had a population of more than 210,000 within the city limits. Besides a number of prominent local department stores, the downtown area offered fine entertainment through such theaters as the Bastable, the Wieting Opera House and later the movie palaces such as the Loew’s, Keith’s Paramount, and the Strand. There were great restaurants including the original Schrafft’s, and hotels such as the Empire and the Yates were joined in 1922 by the Hotel Syracuse.

Mirbeau Inn & Spa hosts
the First Annual New York Wine Festival!

The New York Wine Festival is excited to launch and establish the first wine festival in New York State that not only showcases fine wines from the three main wine growing regions in New York to tempt the wine expert, but also brings interactive workshops, tasting tents, food and live music for the wine curious as well.

The New York Wine Festival was born when a group of the more serious wine makers wanted a festival that focused on all three regions of New York’s wineries rather than segregating them; this would unite them together as New York State Wines. They approached Mirbeau Inn & Spa and asked the property to be the host for the premier year. Having a high interest in fine wine in it’s restaurant, Wine Bar and featured vinotherapy treatments in the spa, Mirbeau readily accepted the invitation and voila! The First Annual Wine Festival had a home.

The festivities begin on Friday, September 24th with a Wine Pairing Dinner and continue through the weekend with events such as winery tours, seminars, tasting & voting, spa treatments, food & tasting tents, and live music until 4pm on Sunday, September 26th.

Please join us in celebrating the uniqueness and pride of New York State Wines!
