The Flight concept began with David and Tasia Verno’s love of wine and extensive travels throughout Europe and the United States. The marriage of food, wine and knowledge is the cornerstone of Flight. This is Rochester’s exclusive establishment that brings the wine experience from Paris, Napa Valley, Washington DC and beyond into one inviting hot spot. The ambiance is warm with chocolate hues, organic textured woods and low lighting.
The name Flight comes from a term referring to a tasting, whether it is food or drink. Hand-selected and creatively grouped, the “flights”, or a trio of pours, are the main course of the night.
“Huge selection of wine paired with great food makes for an enjoyable evening with family & friends.”
— Chad Lapa
“Flight is THE spot for Rochester wine enthusiasts. They have an awesome selection, free tastings, and the perfect atmosphere to socialize.”
— Sara Passamonte
“Trios of hand-selected pours are the highlight at this appropriately named spot overlooking the Genesee River. Ice wines and Rieslings from New York’s Finger Lakes region make regular appearances in the bar’s extensive flights, which aren’t just limited to wines—there’s also a chocolate tasting, comprising dipped orange peels, sesame leaves, and dark chocolate truffles, perfect for sharing. If you’re in more of a savory mood, go for the cheese and charcuterie plates and tuck into succulent slices of salami and beechwood-smoked Bruder Basil. Low lighting and warm, earth-toned furniture complete the elegant atmosphere.”
