  • Ontario County has received the contract for $3,256,000 in state funds for construction of the Finger Lakes Viticulture Center in Geneva,
    State Sen. Mike Nozzolio, R-Fayette and Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, R-Canandaigua announced today.
    “The Viticulture Center will include a world-class winemaking lab, a grape crushing pad, rooms for storing and aging wine, classroom space and a teaching vineyard. Finger Lakes Community College’s Viticulture and Wine Technology curriculum prepares students to transfer directly into Cornell University’s four-year viticulture program and its location in the Cornell Ag-Tech park will further strengthen this relationship and provide even greater opportunities for FLCC’s students,” the release stated.
     
    “The construction of the Finger Lakes Viticulture Center is great news for the residents of our region and I look forward to working with Senator Nozzolio and Assemblyman Kolb as we bring new jobs and educational opportunities to the Finger Lakes,” stated Jack Marren, chairman of the Ontario County Board of Supervisors.
