IMO the best dry reds in the Finger Lakes come from the warmest microclimate, or the so-called "banana belt", on the SouthEast side of Seneca Lake. Shalestone is a small winery that does nothing but dry reds and they are among the best in the region. Damiani and Lamoreaux Landing are in the same general area and also do a very good job on dry reds. But be prepared to pay a premium price for the really good ones from these and other wineries.

Shalestone is great- but they aren't open daily- call ahead to check. Worth the trip.

We also like Atwater, which is in the Banana Belt too.
