Wine Tasting in the Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes Wine Region is about 3 1/2 hours from the Hudson Valley. It is composed of 4 wine trails...Canandaigua Wine Trail - 10 wineries, Keuka Lake Wine Trail - 18 wineries, Seneca Lake Wine Trail - 53 wineries and Cayuga Lake Wine Trail - 24 wineries. You are probably thinking, all these wineries where do I stay.

On a visit to the Finger Lakes, my husband and I stayed at the Red Brick Inn in Dundee. We felt that this was very centrally located as well as a beautiful place to stay. In the Finger Lakes area, there are many Bed & Breakfasts to choose from along with hotels and motels.

Here are some of my favorite wineries in the Finger Lakes.
Keuka Wine Trial- Chateau Renaissance Wine Cellars, Dr Konstantin Franks's Vinifera WIne Cellars (know as Dr. Frank), Heron Hill Winery, Hunt Country Vineyards, McGregor Vineyard & Winery
Cayuga Wine Trail - Kings Ferry Winery (Treleaven), Sheldrake Point Vineyard
Seneca Wine Trail - Atwater Estate Vineyards, Chateau LaFayette Reneau, Fox Run Vineyards, Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars, Red Newt Cellars, Standing Stone Vineyards, Wagner Vineyards,
Canandaigua Wine Trail- Finger Lakes Wine Center

If you can't make it to the Finger Lakes you can attend the Hudson Valley Wine Festival Sept 8 & 9th at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. A number of Finger Lakes Wineries will be there. You can taste and purchase their wine there. It's a great event.

If you do have a chance to visit the Finger Lakes, please share your tastings with me.
