Join our Finger Lakes wine community for Happy Hour live music and specialty cuisines at our monthly event ‘The 11th Hour’! Each month will focus on a different theme of cuisine and feature dishes created by renowned local chef Chef Samantha Buyskes of Simply Red Events. Each event will have a different food service style– some à la carte menus, some family share– welcoming you to a different vibe each time.

The foods will be paired with FLX à la carte wines by the glass specials, with a different pair of our partnered wineries being featured each time. Meet and greet folks from the featured wineries.

Walk-ins welcome, but reservations are highly encouraged as our last events have been completely sold out! Reservations are free, and for each reservation made in advance– get an extra wine pour with the purchase of a flight! Menu items are priced separately.
