A big congratulations to Casa Larga in Perinton -- this week's Rochester Rocs winner! Casa Larga's Lilac Hill was picked as the best local bottle of wine.
It won with 60-percent of the vote – the largest margin of victory in Rochester Rocs history! We revealed the winner live this morning on News10NBC Today.
Lilac Hill is one of the most highly requested wines at Casa Larga. It's a semi-sweet wine and comes in a blue bottle.
Andrea O’Neill of Casa Larga Vineyards said, “Lilac Hill was created over 15 years ago. (It’s) a wine to honor Rochester and the Lilac Festival and the fact that we're the Lilac City. It's a great wine, it's fruity, has a nice acid balance so it goes very well with food.”
Now is a great time to visit the winery as they are just finishing up the harvest at Casa Larga.
