The wine center is really cool because it's one of a kind and it showcases wines from many of our finger lakes wineries. Its beautiful inside with cozy seating.

I visit the Wine Center regularly -- especially if I have out of town guests. Tasting at the Center is a great way to showcase many of the unusual wines of the Fingerlakes.
