Are you a big fan of wine? Do you enjoy sampling a variety of blends and doing it in a fantastic manner? You might want to consider visiting the Seneca Lake Wine Trail in western New York. Seneca Lake is one of the many Finger Lakes carved out by the glaciers that came through New York many many years ago.
It has grown into an amazing wine trail namely because there are vineyards scattered all across the western and eastern size of the lake. The fertile soil and weather conditions are perfect for harvesting an amazing crop of grapes I can be turned into fantastic wine.
The Seneca Lake Wine Trail was founded in 1986 as a nonprofit organization. The wineries in the region are industrious and sustain a beautiful and highly prosperous western York region.
The wineries that are members of the wine trail or actually open all year round. The challenge with the winter months might have you steering away until spring. Either way you will have a great time with friends and create significant memories and experiences. A friend who owns a Paramus physical therapy clinic in New Jersey has been visiting the region every few years and says the wine is among the best in New York. A tall order to live up to but worthy enough to consider checking out…
There are 35 member wineries steeped in rich history and beauty producing truly world-class wines. They offer delicate varieties of Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay. There are many choices based on your palettes.
There are opportunities to plan an excursion around the lake and many people rent limousines so they don’t have to drive. This way, you can visit a dozen wineries in the afternoon & not worry about driving.
If you have interest in state parks, the Watkins Glen State Park sits on the south side of the lake and offers spectacular rock formation views & an amazing trail system.
