Once again Deck the Halls another success. If you like wine tasting, Seneca Wine Trail is a hit. Wine for every taste. Very your Deck tghe hmHalls tickets early because they sell out. Awesome event put in by the Seneca Wine Trail!

There were plenty of wineries all around the whole lake. We drove around the lake and had lunch in Geneva. We stopped to do wine tastings at two wineries. Purchased 3 bottles. The views of the lake from some of the stops was just beautiful!!!!
