Chili Cook-off Logo Final

Join us Saturday, January 28, 2023, for the 1st annual Seneca Chili Cook-Off! This friendly competition will pit four East-side Seneca Lake wineries (J.R. Dill, Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, Bagley’s Poplar Ridge Vineyards, and Hector Wine Company) against each other for a chance to win the Seneca Chili Cook-Off trophy…and you’ll be the judge!  Available for purchase now, your ticket includes a standard wine tasting and an ample portion of competition chili at each winery. At your final winery of the day, you’ll cast your vote for your favorite chili and decide who receives the trophy! Tickets for the event are $40 per person, must be purchased in advance, and are available here:

Seneca Lake Wine Trail Events


NOVEMBER 18-20, 2022
DECEMBER 2-4, 2022
18 Seneca Lake Wine Trail wineries will be decorated for the holiday season so come out for a weekend of fun and festivities. Simply check in at your assigned starting winery, picking up your tickets, wreath, recipe book and wine glass, sample your first food and wine tasting and collect an ornament at each winery you visit. For wine tasters, each attendees will receive a food sample paired with a 1-ounce wine tasting, and then three additional ½-ounce tastings. In lieu of the wreath packet, glass and wine, the designated driver ticket holder will instead receive a souvenir travel mug and the food with a non-alcoholic beverage along the way.

Visit for tickets.
