There are plenty of wineries in the area and it's a nice addition to a trip to the area, especially after a hike at Watkins Glen State Park.

The Seneca wine trail is a lot of fun. There are some really good quality wineries and some up and coming ones as well. Take some time and plan out your trip.

"Bacchus loves the hills." As a result, touring in wine country is always an adventure in beautiful geography. Lake Seneca is an added bonus here. The wineries have done a wonderful job in creating their website and in preparing an excellent brochure. Be sure you have a designated driver.

We had a great day on the Seneca lake wine tour. We visited Ravines wine cellars, White Springs winery, Billsboro winery, Fox run vineyards and Hermann J Vineyard. We easily could have gone to many many more. Simply ran out of time and energy. It's a beautiful area and the wines were great.

A great way to spend from one to several hours of "freebies". Don't do this unless you've a DD on board! Should not precede a track e ent........you could "melt-down"!

I was blown away by the sheer number of wineries available along Seneca lake, truly boggles the mind. I stopped in at the visitors center in Watkins Glen and asked about good quality reds which I did not find on The Cayuga wine trail. They suggested several. The best one I found was Damiani, a little way up the right... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide this detailed review! Damiani Wine Cellars is definitely a good tasting room, with fine wines. I'm also proud to say that Ventosa Vineyards won the prestigious Governor's Cup award in 2015 for their Lemberger, and we continue to be enthusiastic about the increasingly worthy red wines coming out of our region.

Come with the idea of having fun, not for serious wine connoisseurs. Knowing the region is best known for light fruity summer wines helps. Good cheeses in the region too!

Paul T, General Manager at Seneca Lake Wine Trail, responded to this review

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide this nice review! Many of our member wineries try to cater to both serious oenophiles, and folks who take a lighter approach to wines, but it can be a tough balance to strike sometimes. More serious connoisseurs might find some of the custom tasting/tour experiences, typically led by senior managers,... More

We have been going to Seneca Lake for over 40 years now. Since we moved away from new York, it's a yearly pilgrimage. We always manage to squeeze in a few wineies on our visits. Over the years, we must have been to just about every winery on Seneca Lake, as well as Keuka Lake. What a beautiful lake Seneca... More
