Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion is a beautiful site. What makes this site unique is the fact that it is manned by mostly volunteers. There are approximately 12 paid workers. The gardents are beautifully maintained. There is a Japanese Garden, a Rock Garden, and a beautiful rose garden. The volunteers drive trams and they have many interesting stories related to the...

Good value. Very interesting. Very friendly staff at the wine tasting. Super deal for 5 dollars 5 wines to sample. The only issue was the little restaurant on site, only two servers and not very clean. Food okay but nothing special.

I highly recommend the Sonnenberg Gardens but the Wine Center isn't really what I would consider a standard 'tasting room' in a winery. Although they had a variety of wines to choose from I'm not so sure the staff knew a lot about the wine. 1 of 3 individuals working seemed to have a grasp on the kinds of wine.... More

Visited the wine and gift shop and the volunteers were most helpful and knowledgeable of the history of Sonnenberg as well as the wines in the shop.

My boyfriend and I visited the Finger Lakes Wine Center to sample their wines. The tasting room is different from most wineries that we have visited in the past - it's in a basement. There is a beautiful stained glass window in the room though, it makes the room feel more like a tasting room. The variety of wines to... More
