|What's Happening at Sonnenberg Gardens
Whether it's attending one of Sonnenberg's special events, like the Annual Saturday Mothers' Tea or planning a private event of your own to host on the grounds, there's a multitude of things to do! Host a wine-and-cheese party after-hours in our Finger Lakes Wine Center Tasting Room or come to one of our wine-themed seasonal events, such as Roses & Rosés. Make reservations for May or August teas at our Mansion, book a training seminar or class in our Carriage House, or celebrate career achievements with members of your company at a business reception. In addition, we are now offering private rental options in the off-season at select site locations, and there are seasonal special events that enable you to enjoy Sonnenberg year-round. Take a closer look at everything Sonnenberg has to offer!
