Bet The Farm Winery in Aurora, New York

“BET THE FARM” is the unusual name for an unusual new winery in Aurora , on the east side of Cayuga Lake , that is devoted to “local”. Owner and winemaker Nancy Tisch began with the concept of selling local foods and wines together (I remember that phone call years ago), which is only do-able if you are licensed as a farm winery. So she undertook the long and arduous licensing process, makes the wine at a nearby winery, and has the tasting room on Main St. in Aurora , home of Wells College . In addition to her own wine, she sells other local wines along with an assortment of local foods.
