“Cheap wine tasting, scenic drive.”

Finger Lakes Wine Country
Reviewed 29 November 2011

Worth the day trip. Its about 40 minutes by car from Rochester. Many wineries to choose from. Better to have a designated driver in the group. $2 wine tasting.

So much fun visiting all the wineries. It was our third trip to the Finger Lakes. It is so easy to find them along the lakes. Really crowed on the weekends at some in October.

What a beautiful time to visit the Finger Lakes- during peak leaf season! The drive alone is worth is, to be along the picturesque lakes with the leaves in all their glory. The wineries along the trail were fantastic, our group didn't find a single one we were disappointed in. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and knowledgeable regarding the wines. Excellent trip, and plan to be back again!

My husband and I debated for a while about whether or not to purchase a wine tour package from the B&B (Inn on Main) that we were staying at. We ended up doing it and I am so glad we did. Ron, our driver, arrived at our B&B on time and had snacks and drinks in the car waiting for us. He asked us what types of wines we preferred and had several suggestions of which wineries he thought would appeal to us most. My husband and I had a wonderful time and Ron was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area wineries and also entertained us with knowlege aobut the area while we were traveling between wineries. The hours flew by as we visited 7 wineries. Ron was the consumate gentleman and opened the car door for me each time I got out or got in and I cannot think of enough good things to say about him and also this Company. If you are thinking of whether or not to use a service like this, stop thinking and contact them. You won't regret it.

for those of us that live in the northeast the finger lakes is an easy drive to a wine region that is developing into a world class region for white wine. Even if you are not an oenophile you can enjoy the beauty of the lakes. The wineries in the finger lakes have a very different attitude than new world wine regions such as California, Australia, or Argentina. Finger Lakes wineries lack pretension that makes them welcoming to wine newbies but this lack of snootiness is no way a sign that the wineries here lack passion. If you are a wine geek, you will enjoy personal pours with vintners and one to one discussions with the owners.
