Drag Brunch
July 27, 11am-1:30pm

What’s better, boozier, and bawdier than dinner theater? Drag brunch! Coltivare welcomes your hostess with the mostest Tilia Cordata and her fabulously talented friends, for an MC’d drag show complete with costume changes, musical numbers, shimmer, shine, and more glitz ‘n glamour than you’ve seen in the daylight. Enjoy your favorite boozy cocktails and breakfast foods in the presence of royalty (drag queens that is) as you take in a Saturday matinee and sip a mimosa.

Tickets are 30 and include a full buffet brunch, one complimentary drink coupon (cash bar after), and a hell of a show. Doors open for brunch at 11 while the show starts at noon. Full menu coming soon! Tickets available for purchase online through Eventbrite.


Wagner Vineyards

Wine Pairing Dinner
August 8, 6-8pm

August’s locally sourced late-summer pairing dinner features an endearing odd couple ensemble of Seneca Lake wine and Southern comfort food. Join us for a small gathering in the Coltivare wine cellar featuring some of our favorite vintages from Wagner Vineyards served alongside a custom menu from Executive Chef Patrick Blackman. An Ithaca transplant, Chef Patrick’s inspirations stem from an upbringing in New Orleans as well as time spent working the Texas food scene before relocating to the Finger Lakes. Learn about the origins of each dish as well as why the paired wine was chosen. Enjoy the company of friends and let the flavors of this three course feast transport you. TICKETS FOR SALE ON EVENTBRITE

Cooking Class

Campfire Cooking
August 10, 6-8:30pm

Campfire cooking isn’t just hot dogs and marshmallows, it’s much much s’more. Learn to create rich and complex flavors using local ingredients, simple steps, and recipes you can replicate at home (or even better, outdoors!) in this continuation on last year’s inaugural cooking class theme. While the class will take place inside our modern kitchen, the recipes and instructions given will prepare attendees to cook outside above an open fire using a Dutch oven. Share in Chef Patrick’s passion for campfire cooking!

Kick off at 6:00 with a quick round of introductions then get hands-on in the Coltivare culinary lab in a fun and interactive class complete with tastings, takeaways and an adult beverage pairing. An ideal class for nature-loving foodies, couples, friends, and the outgoing solo cook looking to meet new people. No experience or expertise necessary.

$50 price per person is all inclusive (food/adult beverage/recipe cards). Expect to leave full, happy, and likely with leftovers! Tickets available for purchase online through Eventbrite.
