del Lago purchases local wine to be gifted to guests

From the start, the mission behind del Lago Resort & Casino has been to act as a gateway to the Finger Lakes region.

The mission continues as the resort and casino celebrates the fall grape harvest by purchasing 3,000 bottles of wine (250 cases) from Thirsty Owl Wine Company on Cayuga Lake and 3,000 bottles of wine (250 cases) from Glenora Wine Cellars on Seneca Lake. The purchases are the largest single sales that the wineries have received. The wine will be gifted to del Lago Resort & Casino’s top guests during the month of September.

From slots and table games to its award-winning restaurant, Portico by Fabio Viviani to Spa del Lago, the resort and casino encourages its guests to enjoy the many amenities the property offers and to also explore the countless wineries, breweries, cheesemakers and local shops in the beautiful region. Del Lago is pleased to support local wineries; Thirsty Owl Wine Company and Glenora Wine Cellars while also encouraging its top guests to visit these great wineries and others in the area.

“The sale of 250 cases of Lot 99 to del Lago Resort & Casino is the single largest one time drop we have made to one single account in the history of Thirsty Owl Wine Company,” said Jon Cupp, president. “We look forward to the synergies between Finger Lakes wineries and del Lago Resort & Casino as we believe it will drive many more visitors to our region.”

“This is the largest single day sale for Glenora Wine Cellars and we are thrilled that the order came from such a community-minded partner,” said Gene Pierce, owner of Glenora Wine Cellars. “Since it opened, del Lago Resort & Casino has been an incredible asset to our region. Del Lago has truly embraced all that our area has to offer and has encouraged guests to go out and explore our areas wineries, vineyards and local businesses and for that we are very appreciative.”

Del Lago Resort & Casino is a steward of the Finger Lakes area, working to leverage the natural beauty and unique offerings to enhance tourism across the board. This mission has been woven throughout the development of del Lago through amenities such as Savor New York — MacKenzie-Childs, which is a retail outlet and showcase of local wineries, breweries, spirits, cheesemakers and more
