Wine Check Service
As a courtesy to their guests they offer a centralized Wine Check service. It works just like a coat check at a restaurant. If you wish, you can bring your purchases to their Wine Check area and we will hold it for you. They will provide you with a two-part wine label. When you drop off your purchase, please make sure you fill out both halves of the label. You should put one label on your purchase and keep the other half as your receipt.

Use of the Wine Check Service is completely voluntary. You are welcome to carry your purchases with you, but if you would like us to hold your purchases until you are ready to leave, we are happy to assist you. The Wine Check area is for wine purchases ONLY and cannot be used for other goods. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact a staff member. If you choose to carry your wine purchases with you, we remind you that New York State law prohibits you from opening wine bottles and drinking the wine on-site. The Utica Wine and Chocolate Festival is not responsible for wine that is not picked up or misplaced because labels were not filled out completely or improperly attached to packages.


Tickets are $30 in advance and $10 for Designated Drivers. Please note ticket prices will go up to $35 at the door.  To purchase tickets, visit Tickets are also available at Seneca Wine and Liquors and Lichtman’s Wine and Liquors.
