Culligan Water at Deer Run Winery for Summer Concert Series

A view of Thursday Night Summer Concert Series at Deer Run Winery

In a new and exciting venture in 2017, we recently partnered with Deer Run Winery to sponsor their Thursday Night Summer Concert Series for Livingston County!

Owner, George Kuyon, fulfilled his dream in 2003, after retiring from Kodak of 33 years, when he started Deer Run Winery at the north end of Conesus Lake in Livingston County New York. On a 20 acre parcel of farmland grows 30% of the grapes used to make their award-winning wines, including Vidal, Noret, Corot Noir, Frontenac varieties and more.

Starting in 2015, the Kuyons expanded upon their winemaking business by hosting the Thursday Night Summer Concert Series. Every Thursday night starting in June, guests can attend (for free!) and enjoy live music while sipping on a delicious wine slushy (or two) and feasting from a variety of food vendors. All that is needed is a chair! What started out as a fun, free night out with a few hundred attendees, has grown to be an event looked forward to every Thursday night by up to 1,000 attendees! Each Thursday hosts a different musician that will appeal to everybody’s musical ear; delicious food from vendors such as 3 Legged Pig BBQ, Cheesed & Confused, Sticky Lips & more; and sweet desserts from Finger Lakes Cookie Co. and Twister’s Ice Cream. And, not only will we be sponsoring the series, we will also be selling bottles of refreshing Culligan water for you to quench your thirst after you’ve had all the food and wine you could consume! Come visit us at our tent east of the stage. If you haven’t made it yet, make sure to check out at least one of these fun and entertaining concert series.

Throughout the year the winery hosts a variety of events including weddings, dinners, festivals and more. With the help of his wife, Joan, son, Scott, and Scott’s wife, Marie; George and family have created quite a wonderful & busy business for themselves. While Conesus Lake has definitely established itself with many fun, exciting and yummy things to check out, Deer Run Winery is a must stop when you’re in town!
