  • State senator Mike Nozzolio and State Assemblyman Brian Kolb today announced that they have secured $8 million in the state budget for a major expansion at the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park that they say will create local jobs and continue to put our region at the cutting edge of agricultural research and development.
    The funding will be used by Finger Lakes Community College to construct a new state-of-the-art Viticulture Center as a permanent location for the college’s groundbreaking viticulture and wine technology program.
    The new Viticulture Center’s location at the Ag Tech Park will put students in close proximity to over 50 local wineries and all of the region’s wine trails, as well as FLCC’s teaching vineyard in Yates County. The Center will include a world-class winemaking lab, including a grape crushing pad and rooms for storing and aging wine, classroom space and another small teaching vineyard.
