I love this trail. The best time to go though is for one of their big events. For example Chocolate and Wine, or Cheese and Wine. There will be about 30 participating wineries, and you definitely need 2 days to take it all in, and that's if you start by about 11AM. Although, we have become quite good at it,... More

This wine trail is spectacular. But to really enjoy it, spend a weekend. No, not enough time, take a weeks vacation. There are so many wines to taste and restaurants to satisfy your hunger beautifully located around Seneca Lake. The wineries are accommodated by friendly hosts who open up their homes and/or businesses for tasting. Be the first to taste... More

Our family members had a very relaxing week checking out many of the wineries and even beer making establishments. We also visited a place that specialized in whiskey. Many places also had great restaurants and beautiful views of the river. We also visited some funky old antique places. Great vacation and wonderful people. We brought home a number of our... More

We have been coming to the glen for years- from racing to camping it's fantastic- the wine tour/variety is fantastic. What impresses us the most is always the friendly staff at each and Every winery, and their willingness to suggest neighboring wineries for varieties and activities. Many places to stay (we love the harbor hotel) and eat (glenora is a... More

3 Brothers, Penguin Bay, Hazlitt, JR Dill...there are never enough hours in the day or days in our vacation to visit all the vineyards we love. Its different every time and I never get tired of talking about it. I could run the visitors center!

Just got back from a Deck the Halls weekend on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. I can honestly say this excursion was not what I expected. I have toured the wineries on Keuka Lake before during a normal weekend and it was a very slow (almost stuffy), but yet educational tour. If that's your aim do not come for Deck... More

I lived in NY for most of my life and never did a wine trail until I moved to the Texas Hill Country. I traveled back to spend a weekend with my sisters in Watkins Glen and do some wine tasting. To my suprise, NY has some good red wines. We hired a driver for the day and hit about... More

Perfect time of year to do the wine trails. Crowds weren't there, weather comfortable. Many restaurants. Antique shops.

This wine trail is so much fun. We hit up 15 wineries on Friday of this event weekend and plan on doing the rest Saturday. We like sweet wine and have had no problem finding wine to our liking. There are also many dry and semi-dry for other people. I was expecting crowds of people but thus far it has... More

I took a bus trip from PA for a 2-day tour of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. The Wineries are located off the main road & have easy access even in the Coach! Glenora gave an excellent presentation of wines pared with a cheese. I purchased a case of wine from Lakewood Vineyards even tho I later had to determine... More
