There are views that rival anything, anywhere. Great wines and wineries, quaint little towns and small cities. Rent a house on one of these beautiful lakes and know the meaning of contentment!

We have gone on several of these tours. There are about 7 or 8 a year with different themes (BBQ,, Tapas, wine&cheese lovers, etc,). Each winery has a different specific tasting and theme recipe. The tour circles the lake and you can make it a one or two day event and return or spend a night at local B&B's or... More

Many wineries of varying sizes. Exciting day traveling in between these wineries and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Various small villages and towns add a wonderful flare to your day. Shops and many restaurants to visit and enjoy.

When it comes to a combination of breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery and a multitude of wineries and breweries, there's no place like the Finger Lakes. It's a great place to vacation and tour, not only all of the finger lakes; but, also, if you're a wine or beer drinker, the A-plus wineries and breweries. If you're only coming... More

We're from upstate New York, and when we travel the world, people assume we're from New York City and ask why we don't talk funny. Well, there's a whole other side to New York and the Finger Lakes area is a real gem. Beautiful scenery, clear lakes, wineries galore and some great places to dine. There are so many wineries...

We traveled down to Naples and Canandaigua one weekend and had great weather, wine tasting, and views. We went to Hemlock Lake and Lakeville another weekend and were treated to great wine tasting and views.

We enjoyed touring and seeing the wineries and craft breweries in the Finger Lakes District. There are nice restaurants. There are also scenic views of the lakes.

We've been visiting the Finger Lakes Wine Country for many years. Comparing it to Somona CA or any other major wine region we've visited - I would say it rates quite high. It's nice to have so many wineries close together, not a long drive between them. The owners all seem to take great pride in their products and hire... More

We tried many wineries and a good time was had for all. You do need a DD for a fun day of winery tours, as it creeps up on you and not a good thing to drink and drive.
