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

Having been to Chile, Argentina, Washington State (and living in the Niagara Canada area), the Seneca Lake wines literally pale in comparison if you like heavy, fuller-bodied reds. My favourite winery is the somewhat obscure Serenity Vineyards. A no-frills place with a tasting area set up in their warehouse. Friendly staff with classic rock streaming off YouTube. Total lack of... More

Glad to know you enjoyed the wines at Serenity and the hospitality at Glenora, and appreciate you visiting our member wineries during your recent trip. Seeing your passion for red wine, if you do opt to visit our region again, it might be helpful to focus on those wineries that have won Gold or Double Gold medals for red wines... More

Seneca Wine Trail will spoil you for all other wine trails. They are easily located, convenient), close together and very friendly to travelers. The trail follows the lake so the views are breath taking!!! Local wine, local cheeses, local crafts & SO MUCH FUN!

We visited three wineries...there are so many to choose from. Each charged a small fee to participate in 5-6 one ounce wine tastings, if you purchase a bottle at the end, the fee is deducted from the price. Most wineries produce vinifera wines (which is rare, given how cold upstate NY gets in the winter). The reds tend to be... More

We spent two days around Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Friday was a much better day, as it was not busy and we had great service at the different wineries that we went to. Sat was a totally different story, as the wineries were crowded and we left several wineries due to the crowd and not being able to be served.... More

Look for this mobile kitchen if you are touring the Seneca Lake Wine trail! I had read about it in a review posted on this forum and made it a point to find them. We were not disappointed. I got the spinach and feta puff pastry pinwheels and my husband got the roast beef sandwich- both were delicious and a... More
