Only made it to a handful so we will have to come back! Area well known for whites but we did find som good dry reds. Area limits pours to keep you honest. Recommend hiring a designated driver. Enjoy!!

Seneca Lake Wine Trail continues to get better each of the last seven years I have enjoyed. I spent three days enjoying 12 wineries and am amazed by the continuing evolvement of their dry reds. I try to visit at least one new winery each...More

Many, many different wineries are featured on both sides of Seneca Lake. Dry & sweet wines, and everything in-between for every taste. There are also a few breweries sprinkled in for those who are beer lovers. I recommend taking a wine tour, trying out samples...More

We drove around the lake and sampled wine and beer. The wineries in this region specialize in Riesling wines which is my favorite and I collected a wonderful collection of bottles to bring home and enjoy.

My way to do this trail is homework first, that is, Google the wineries and check the ratings in Wine Spectator, etc. Otherwise its hit and miss. I'm not a big fan of Riesling, however I have to admit that its great in the Finger...More

Nice views along the drive, especially when you can see the lake. Watch for the speed limit signs. Limits can change abruptly from 55 to 35, and the police are watching.

No, just show up. Small groups are fine. Van groups such as wedding or bachelorette parties I would suggest make a reservation as a courtesy so they can plan for the group.
