We will then continue into New York with a tour stop at the Valvo’s Chocolate Factory – appropriate for this time of the year. Valvo’s is a legacy of candy making excellence which began 3 generations ago and the Valvo family has been creating exquisite confections for more than 80 years. There will be plenty of time to stock up on Christmas goodies and gifts including a wide variety of freshly roasted nuts which are roasted daily on site – smells delicious ! The Christmas room fills up the back half of the store with everything holiday and boasts some of the most unique gifts you can give.This location also carries a wide variety of quality chocolates in bulk or in specialty boxed packages. On display you will also see New York’s largest collection of antique silver candy mods dating back to the 1900’s ! Our next stop will be for a lovely afternoon wine-tasting at the Merritt Winery located in the largest grape growing region east of the Rockies and the largest Concord grape growing region in the world in Chautauqua County. The grapes and wines produced in this area rival the quality of premium vintages found throughout the world. We will then check in at our nearby hotel in New York for free time to freshen up before our evening out. A special Christmas dinner is included at a local restaurant where you will also enjoy a festive Christmas show including singing, Santa and holiday skits for all to enjoy – it will be a lovely evening.
