Do you need to color in the label on the wine bottle of those "other" wineries?

All that are going: Look at the top of this thread.
 
I updated the schedule with specific times and places.
I am figuring on 9-10 for Friday dinner and 13 for Saturday.
 
Give me a shout if you need to make any changes.

Before you leave Watkins Glen, you gotta walk the gorge. You can take the bus ride to the top and walk down but you gotta do it. It's breathtaking. And be sure to bring your camera.

Actually, I think we will have two options for Sunday after the cruise on Seneca Lake. Walk the gorge or go see the Skip Barber Driving School participants at the TRACK.
 
DaveM- Between checking on her mother, watching two grandkids and getting ready for our sons wedding, she felt too stressed to spend a weekend relaxing.

Bully Hill Winery
Bully Hill is actually owned by a Taylor of Taylor wine.
When the father died and left it to his sons they sold it. They both sat on the board. Greyton Taylor was not happy as they watered down the wine so he quit and purchased the land where Bully Hill now sits.
He produced his own wine and got sued by the new owners of Taylor.
He went to court and lost. He had to give all the family wine recipies to Taylor. He was ordered to take anything with Taylor name to town to the plant. He loaded everything up in a manure wagon and paraded it to town.
He also took his white goat with the name "Taylor" painted on it. They called and told him to come get his goat. He said you wanted everything Taylor...well his name is Taylor. He ended up going and getting the goat.
So the saying "they took my heritage, my family name, but they did not get my goat"
So the goat you see on the label of goat white and goat red is his goat Taylor.
Greyton draws all his labels and is a great artist. The Taylor goat label has the tongue of the goat (which sticks out of it's mouth) changed each bottleing and so if you take a stack of mixed labels and fan them like a deck of cards the tongue wags at you.
Now he also had hundreds of bottled wine to sell and again went to court and lost the right to use his name Taylor on the label. So he sent out flyers to the local college that there was a free party at his place all the wine you can drink all you had to do was bring a black marker.
The students sat and crossed out anything that said Taylor on the bottels and he was allowed to sell his wine.
The only Taylor you will see on his bottle that is allowed is the address. Greyton Taylor Drive.
This story was told to me by a student that came to help and never left, he used to do the wine tasting years ago in the old building.
So Dave you were very close and so you get the glass of wine.
See you all Sat.

Alan,
I knew when they sold the winery they couldn't use the name Taylor anymore, but I never heard the story about the goat and blacking out the name on the labels.
Should be an interesting lunch and tour.
See you tonight.

Man, what a great time!
 Dave did an awesome job setting up this event! Thanks again! Clap
It was a pleasure seeing everyone there, and meeting some new folks. The cars looked great! I felt kinda outta place there without my vette.
 
 Going around the Watkins Glen Raceway was way cool. Nothing like heading into the corner at 115 mph and then having downshift and do my best rendition of "drifting" though the curve with the GTO. Cool
 
 The boat ride was classic. At least we didn't end up like "Gilligans Island" Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing
 
 Definitely a memorable adventure in C3VR. Thumbs%20Up

It was great to meet more C3VR friends.
Great people, great cars, great weather, great scenery, great food, great wine, a few rough roads and dust (sorry about that DaveM, some towns are really cheap on asphalt) and fun at the track.
 
It couldn't have turned out better if I planned it.
 
Thanks to all. I hope you didn't mind the "quaint" motel.

We took an extra day so we just got home. What a great weekend. Lots of fun and great people, old friends and new ones! The boat ride and drift was a pisser. Then up to the track for 3 hot laps on the full 2.5 miles, what a blast that was. We can off the track and every single one of us had a grin from ear to ear!
Great job Dave, we have to make this one an annual thing!
Dave
