The idea for this event began on the Finger Lakes Wine Country Facebook fan page in early December as a way to generate more fan interest in Finger Lakes Wine Country. The tourism marketing association announced on Facebook that if the page grew from 8,500 to 10,000 fans by the end of the year then the organization would host a sparkling wine event to celebrate. As of February 11, the Facebook fan page has grown an additional 50% to over 15,000 fans. Morgen McLaughlin, president of Finger Lakes Wine Country, said “we are thrilled with the fan growth and interaction on our Facebook page and are excited to offer this event as a thank you to everyone who loves the region.” View the Finger Lakes Wine Country fan page at http://www.facebook.com/fingerlakeswinecountry.
