“Finger Lakes Wine Festival - Great Time”

Finger Lakes Wine Country
Reviewed 29 July 2011

The wine festival happens in July each year at Watkins Glen Racetrack. This was my 6th year attending and it is such a great time. It can get quite hot in the tents but it is certainly worth the heat. Great people working the booths for the wineries, crafters and food vendors. The Launch of the Lakes is the friday night kick off and it is a lot of fun, music, wine, food, and people dressed up in all kinds of togas.

We really enjoyed our wine tour with Quality Wine Tours the driver-guide was very informative on the wines, wineries & region. The luxury sedan we rode in was nice and overall the service was excellent. We will be back in the fall for another wine tour with this service.

I’m normally not a fan of any self-proclaimed “wine region.” If it’s not France or Chile or California, I’m skeptical. Usually, the quality of wines are mediocre and the “region” usually is a marketing hype by some pathetic tourist office. I was prepared to be completely underwhelmed by the Finger Lakes Wine Region. I was dead wrong.

We drove the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail and stopped in at the Knapp Winery (reviewed separately) for a tasting and lunch.

The Finger Lakes Wine Region is charming!

Great winery's on this specific lake. What a beautiful area! Definitely visit Belhurst Castle on your route, they have a great Sunday brunch or just go to have a drink and sit on the patio overlooking the lake.
