I went for a wine tasting with a few friends. After visiting five or six vineyards it makes a lot more sense to hire a driver or at least have a designated non drinking driver. Some of the visits were very entertaining. Top of the llist was Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinfera Wine Celler. Not only informative about the wines grown... More

Greatly enjoyed the beauty of the Finger Lakes region. While I know there are exceptions, I found the white wines to be highly desireable, while the reds were somewhat weak and unfulfilling. Great views from everywhere though. Makes for a very enjoyable day.

Finger Lakes wines served, from local wineries, but at $8.50 for a tiny glass. Had the tuna tataki and got 2 little slivers of tuna for $12.00. You are paying for the view of the lake, which is very nice. Burgers were OK as were the wraps but over priced. Waitress was nice and service was good.

wine tasking up and down the lakes (seneca in particular) is delightful . a very nice experience . lots of smaller wineries (Dr. Frank's is a favorite) and not even close to costs associated with NAPA valley tastings !

I recommend to go to Seneca Lake. There are so many from little ones to large wineries. The drive around Seneca lake will be and all day ride so have a designated driver or take a limo with a group of friends. On a hot summer day it's wonderful but for spectacular views there is nothing like the fall. Try... More

Certainly one of the most beautiful sections of the Country,never mind the State, the Finger Lakes Region of New York State offers stunning scenery, world- renowned wines, especially the Rieslings and Chardonnays and undoubtedly the finest ice wines in the country.

We took a day trip from Rochester to Seneca Lake. Upon arriving there at lunchtime, we were told we could bring food on the local one tour lake tour boat. We ordered carry out from a restaurant right by the dock. Food was tasty and since the boat was not very crowded we had room to spread out and eat.... More

Visit the Finger Lakes. It is such a beautiful area. Beautiful lakes and countryside. I especially like all the boutique wineries you can visit. Make sure you stop at Hammondsport. The best small town in the U.S.
