No gripes for village's 'Wine About Winter' event

When you live near Lake Ontario in a place like Medina you expect harsh winters.  But, that doesn't mean you have to hide away until spring.

The 9th annual "Wine About Winter" will get people out of their houses from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, February 4, when the Orleans County village comes alive thanks to the sponsoring Medina Business Association.

The walkabout event originated in 2008 when the village, at just 6,065 residents the largest community in the rural county west of Rochester, was pursuing a federal Main Street grant. One of the ideas was to get more people to "discover" more local businesses.

This year, 30 businesses and wineries are scheduled to participate. Tickets are available online, and include VIP and general admission. In addition to members of the Niagara Wine Trail, Three Brothers Wineries and Estates of Geneva has signed up.
