Located in central New York, the Finger Lakes is a stunning region that is home to over 100 wineries along 11 lakes. The area is known for producing some of the finest vintages of Rieslings and other varieties due to the unique microclimate found along the fertile land located beside the water banks. However this region can be quite expansive to drive though; it takes an hour to drive from the north end of Geneva to the founding father of Finger Lakes wine Dr. Konstantin Frank Wine Cellars. So, to keep the driving to a minimum and the wine tasting at a maximum, stick to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, where the wineries are close together and accessible via scenic bike ride. Each one offers guests a relaxed atmosphere, affordable tastings and picturesque views of their vineyards overlooking the largest of the Finger Lakes, Seneca Lake.
Note: Not all of these are on the official Seneca Lake Wine Trail but close enough that they should be.
