“Wine and Herb Festival 2014”

Cayuga Lake Wine Trail
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This is always a must go to event every year for us, a sure sign of spring, the weather this year notwithstanding! There are now 17 wineries to visit which are members of the Cayuga wine trail, each one gives you an herb or vegetable plant with a food pairing to try made out of that herb or vegetable along with a wine paring and extra tastings as well if you want. With 17 wineries and a lot of tastings, you have to know when to say when though.

But it is just a great way to spend a day and you would be hard pressed not to find something you liked at each winery. Many of the other lake wine trails do events and they do them well but the Cayuga wine trail folks have organization down to a science and things always run smoothly for the participating wineries as they have done these events for awhile. Special kudos to the chef at Knapp Winery who always has the best food for most of these events.

While some of the wineries on the east side are often neglected as they are not on the main drag of wineries on the west side of the lake, you miss a lot if you don't stop. Long Point, Treleaven and Six Mile Creek all make some very good to excellent wines and are very hospitable and knowledgeable folks.

This lake has some nice wineries. I like Americana Winery, Lucas, Goose Watch, Swedish Hill, just to name a few. We have traveled over and over to this lake and others. Visit more and more wineries every time, the Fingerlakes WE LOVE YOU!

We went Valentines Day weekend and went on tasting Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here is a rundown: Varick(Formerly Cobblestone): We loved it. SO many oil, sauces dips and food to taste. They do food pairings with the wine tasting. Not to be missed! Americana Wineries: We had V-day dinner here and regular dinner here too. Loved lamb burger. Great wine and tastings. Thirsty Owl: Beautiful vista , great wines, lovely lady leading the tasting and nice merchandise. Six Mile Creek: Amber was great, nice wines, nice vista and limoncello as well. Lakeshore: seated tastings by the fire place with food pairings. Great!! I thaca Brewing Company is a great microbrewery to visit, fun people and some light to hefty brews. Good pizza! Great soup! Buttonwood: Nice views while tasting, good wines, nice merchandise. Goose Watch: very nice grounds, wines and prices.

We have drove this trail many , many times . There are some great wineries as you go alone the lake . And a must stop is the wine center . You can taste wines for from many of the NY lake wineries plus they also have a great place to eat and see how the food the food is made .

We recently stopped at 2 wineries along the trail. We found them both very unique and delightful. We had wood fired pizza at Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery and it was very good - overlooking the lake and the vineyards. Cobblestone Winery was great too because they offered sauces, dips and tasting oils with their wine samples. A truly wonderful area to visit and explore.
