My family rented a house on Lake Seneca over the 4th of July 2014. I have been to Napa and Italy, but drink wine occasionally. I liked the laid back feel of the area. A couple of things I noted: 1) The wineries are typically open from 11am to 5pm. Some stay open a little later, but the intent is... More

This wine trail is great! Most places were a great experience but the only complaint we have is that they ALL close so early! It's a beautiful July night, the sun is out til 9pm and it was the weekend of the wine festival. Nothing at these places were going on.. some acted like they didn't know about the wine... More

We just returned from the Finger Lakes this past weekend and I'm already starting to think about our return trip! I just need to put a shout out to the owner of the Anchor Inn and Tiki bar along Seneca Lake. We stopped in to have a few drinks and when we went to leave our friends car wouldn't start.... More

Catherine of the Valley is a favorite of ours. We enjoyed their wine so much when we did the Seneca Lake Wine Trail three years ago that we went out of our way [on a recent trip to Keuka and Canandaigua lake areas in 6/14] to visit Catherine of the Valley again. In our opinion, their wines and hard cider... More

This was our third time visiting the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. In October 2012 we stayed in Watkins Glen, and the last day we were there someone hit my van and took off, either at Watkins Glen State Park or Hazlett Winery ($2600.00 damage). Did not notice the damage until we stopped for lunch. Today we visited Hazlett again, and... More

We had a wonderful time at the Wine & Pasta Weekend event. We started on Friday and continued our wine and pasta pairings on Saturday. All of the participating wineries were very welcoming and we happily supported the local economy by purchasing LOTS of wine to enjoy later this year.

For two weekends before Christmas the wine trail hosts "Deck the Halls" Starting Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon participating wineries prepare a food pairing with samples of wine. Thirty wineries participated in December 2013 and we managed to get to 29 of them. The one we missed was because I drove past it and didn't want to turn around. We... More

The lake drive was beautiful as it was autumn and the leaves were changing... the weather was tremendous and the wineries were awesome... starting with Glenora. what a view.. did the wine tasting there and bought some nice wines. It was a nice drive on a Saturday afternoon in October.

We had a great time touring the wineries around Seneca Lake. This is our 2nd trip to the area to tour the wineries - last trip was about 4 years ago. There were some new wineries, some no longer in business. Our favorites on Seneca Lake this trip were Miles Wine Cellars - really neat old mansion on the lake... More
