There are way too many wineries to choose from. We went to Glendora, Hazlitt and Earle Estates. Enjoyable experience and some great wines.

Such a lovely part of the United States, and such nice people. We met some of the most friendly people at the vineyards, and all along the way.

Dozens of wineries of all sizes. I like the way they do periodic promotions to get folks out to travel from one to the other.

we went for 4 days and it still wasn't enough time. Each winery had it's own charm and it's own offerings,. Some were better than others, some staff were nicer than others, but overall I can't wait to go back!!

So many wineries, so little time. And beer, and spirits and gorgeous views and some of the nicest people in the Northeast. Talk to your neighbor, take to the owners. Their love for the industry is infectious.

Sorry to be late, April was very wet here keeping us busy and offline. The tour is the safest and you should get a nice cross section. Some will ask where you would like to visit. For the tasting rooms that charge I suggest... More

That is a great question, and there is no universally accurate answer: time of year, day of the week you're visiting, and a host of other factors play into this. Probably 30-45 minutes per winery is a good estimate. Visit... More
