Stayed in Geneva which is a great location for enjoying the finger lakes. Wineries on the East side are fabulous. I did not like the wineries in Keuka Lake.....too sweet!

We visited for a September wedding and although it was cool, the leaves were just beginning to change and the rain and fog over Seneca Lake were gorgeous. A great escape from the heat of the summer and loved the wineries and breweries nearby. A fun area for sure!

Besides being beautiful countryside, there are antique shops, wineries, distilleries, breweries & cheese shops. We wanted to primarily visit the wineries. We quickly discovered that... More

Our 6 person 2014 Wine tasting tour of the 3 Finger Lakes region actually started in Canada with 3 wineries Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada in an afternoon after seeing Niagara Falls in the morning.

It's a beautiful region in upstate NY. Very peaceful and quiet with a lot of things to do. For example go to the Watkins Glen State Park or stop at one of the many vineyards.
