It seems one winery is not like another, but all can deliver a worthwhile experience in a throwback community that smacks of the 60s/70s. This is a fun local activity with more where this came from in neighboring towns.

Enjoy gorgeous lake views and rolling hills along with an abundance of wineries to choose from. This area specializes in sweet, white palate pleasers but most wineries also offer choices for those who prefer a dry wine. There are also breweries along the route. I...More

Seneca boasts all types of wines, but we find that it excels in producing fine dry whites and reds. Love the beautiful lake views many of the wineries boast.

No, just show up. Small groups are fine. Van groups such as wedding or bachelorette parties I would suggest make a reservation as a courtesy so they can plan for the group.
