We encountered temperatures in the high 90ies during our last stay at to the Finger Lakes, and were looking for ways to escape. Visits to several wineries and shops did the trick, but not our stop at the Pleasant Valley Wine Company. We had heard before that this one was actually the "Granddaddy" of all the wineries, but - if so - the "Granddaddy" must have spent a lot of time snoozing lately. The introductory slide show turned out to be pictures in random order without any kind of narration. Some antique looking wine equipment was scattered around willy nilly. Actually the small area devoted to the history of local wineries in the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport did a much better job showing the highlights of one of the region's most important industries. My husband and I were the only visitors there, and by the time we reached the Tasting Area we were just not interested any more. We left without regrets.
I think the people in charge there would greatly benefit from a visit from the "Bully Hill Winery" or one of the other exciting new wineries to get some novel ideas!
