The story of Anyela’s Vineyards began three generations ago in Eastern Europe and continues today on the hillside high above Skaneateles Lake. The Nocek family combines its viticultural experience with the cooler climate patterns and fertile soil to grow our select grapes.
Unlike other vineyards along neighboring Finger Lakes, we protect our vines from the cold after the fall harvest. One by one, we carefully remove them from the trellises and bury them in the rich earth to insulate the sensitive primary buds, which eventually become the fruit. In spring, we re-trellis the vine for maximum sun exposure. We also control our grape yield to cultivate the ripest, most flavorful fruit.
We welcome your inquires about our wines, winery, and events by e-mail, phone, or mail.

From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984, Cirque du Soleil is now a major Quebec-based organization providing high-quality artistic entertainment. The company has more than 4,000 employees from over 40 different countries, including 1,000 artists.
Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to almost 90 million spectators in over 200 cities on five continents. In 2009, Cirque du Soleil will present 19 shows simultaneously throughout the world. The company has received such prestigious awards as the Emmy, Drama Desk, Bambi, ACE, Gémeaux, Félix, and Rose d’Or de Montreux.
Alegría is a mood, a state of mind. The themes of the show, whose name means “jubilation” in Spanish, are many. Power and the handing down of power over time, the evolution from ancient monarchies to modern democracies, old age, youth—it is against this backdrop that the characters of Alegría play out their lives. Kings’ fools, minstrels, beggars, old aristocrats and children make up its universe, along with the clowns, who alone are able to resist the passing of time and the social transformations that accompany it.
Following the November 11, 2007, Veteran’s Day events at Memorial City Hall, State Senator Mike Nozzolio and Assemblyman Gary Finch presented the Veterans Memorial Park Committee with a grant of $100,000 which enabled construction in the Pomeroy Park area, with the blessing of the City of Auburn.
April 3, 2008 saw the placement of a steel arch emblazoned with the words “Veterans Memorial Park,” which was designed by students at Auburn High School. This entrance is adjacent to monuments honoring World War I, World War II, and Korean War veterans. In total, the Park honors veterans from Cayuga County from the Revolutionary War to the present with memorials, pavers engraved with the names of veterans, memorial benches, landscaped plantings and flags.
Students from East Middle School researched battles from each war that are featured on the memorial stones lining the main walkway. Liverpool masonry apprentice students repaired a stone wall that was built in the 1950s. John Barwinczok, Park Committee Chairman, knew it is important to involve area youth in the project. Barwinczok shared, “If they have a hand in creating the memorial, then they will respect it.”
In mid June the City celebrated the dedication of Veterans Memorial Park with a touching ceremony giving recognition of everyone who had contributed to the completion of the Park. The project was truly a community effort demonstrating respect for every life that was given by our residents, in service to this country. Please enjoy the solitude and beauty of this park.
Veterans Memorial Park is an ever-evolving memorial. Contributions and memorials may be arranged by contacting John Barwinczok at (315) 253-6022.
The Park is located on Genesee Street, between the Cayuga County Office Building and Seymour Library and across the street from Sts. Peter and John Episcopal Church and the Auburn Family Restaurant.
