Go on and check reviews for the entire list and choose maybe 6 a day be sure to have a designated driver. They are so close together that it's easy to try many flights at several in one afternoon. Most close at 5 or 6 so plan accordingly

We found the wine district of Seneca Lake truly wonderful. The wineries were lovely and the wines were exceptional. Also, the people were so friendly and took time to actually talk to us about their wines. We didn't have time for anything close to all of the options so we'll simply have to go back.

If into wines, this is a nice area to visit since many of the vineyard along this route have free wine tasting. If not a wine drinker, the drive is nice anyway. We were a little early for the Fall colorful trees, but enjoyed the area nevertheless. Researching the various vineyards before touring wild be a good idea.

Definitely stop by Lakewood winery if you visit the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Lakewood winery is probably the best among hospitality and wine quality. Enjoy the beautiful vineyard view and the very friendly dogs around you while tasting the variety of wines they offer. A must do in Seneca Lake!

If you like reds, the east side gets more sun and make s for better Cabs and Merlot. Stop at wineries or farm stands and and don't be shy about asking for the better wineries in the area.

We were surprised this summer to find so many small wineries have sprung up along the Eastern side of Seneca Lake. We had an opportunity to taste at a couple of them and, well, wine tasting is always fun!

Many small wineries to choose from. NY has developed wines beyond it's famous Reislings. Reds have come a long way and dryer wines. The views of Seneca Lake make it even better!

Who knew that New York was a wine producing state?I admit I was cynical. It is a lovely place to drive around, but wine sampling didn't happen for us as we were on a motorcycle. Tried a couple of local white wines by the glass in local restaurants and found they were a bit fruity but if you shop the... More
