It's a big day in Geneva. On Thursday, area officials will break ground on the new Finger Lakes Viticulture Center.

The center is being built in the Cornell Food and Agriculture Technology Park off Pre Emption Road.

The state-of-the-art research building will be cutting edge, equipped with a wine making lab, classrooms even a grape crushing pad.

The groundbreaking is at 1 p.m. on Technology Farm Drive.
