This is a lovely scenic drive with wineries along the way for tastings. Most chafe $2-3 for tastings of wines, often refundable with purchase. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.

We enjoyed traveling around the lake to so many different wineries and picking up where we left off the next day.

We had a wonderful experience on the Senaca Lake Wine Trail. We did the western side as it was recommended by the hotel & we only had 1 day. We stopped at 3 wineries for the tastings. Lakewood had the best staff! When we stopped at the Glenora Winery, we dined at the Veraisons restaurant there & had a great... More

The wineries of Seneca Lake are numerous and have gone way beyond expectations in their winemaking! Besides the area's well known Rieslings, the red wines are emerging as more full-bodied and great on the nose and palate! A must-do if you are in the area!

As the title suggests, go and give yourself at least 2 days to fit them all in... you know, unless you can either pick a really fast driver or can handle that much alcohol. Great weekend trip and lots of great wineries on this trail! We do it every year and it's a must in our travel budget!

Visited the Seneca Lake Wine trail again......so many wineries and just not enough time. This time, spent the entire long Labor Day weekend in Seneca Lake and we were able to cover both sides of Seneca Lake. Such a fun time and great that they now have breweries! The best winery to visit this time was Three Brothers. 3 seperate... More

We have been visiting Seneca Lake for years and we still manage to find wineries we haven't visited. The views of the lake a picture perfect. The staff at all of the wineries are friendly. We enjoy sweeter wines and are always able to find a wine suitable for our tastes. We noticed, most recently, more of the wineries are... More

Follow the trail and you will find a variety of wines and themes to suit every taste & pallette. Need more than a weekend to cover it all.

The Seneca Lakes wine trail offers a large group of vineyards and breweries/distilleries for tasting. The trail is easy to follow and the materials provided are well organized. While I had heard Reisiling and Pinto Noir were the mainstays you will be plesantly surprised a the variety of other wines grown here.

The drive around Seneca Lake is about 65 miles with vineyards (and a few breweries) spread out along the way.The climb out of Watkins Glen on both sides of the lake opens up to some spectacular views, especially on a bright, sunny day. The challenge is to find time to taste the wines while enjoying the scenery. It will take... More
