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

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!
