We started the wine trail at 10 AM, stopped in Watkins Glen for lunch, stopped at a dozen wineries and finished this scenic tour by 6:00PM The views of the lake are amazing!

We just spent three days on the Seneca Wine Trail and still needed more time to get to see additional wineries, breweries, distilleries and cafe's. The wine trail has many good wineries to visit not to mention many additional wineries not on the wine trail...More

We are glad you had such an enjoyable visit, and hope you can return someday soon to visit the many wineries and other craft beverage producers you weren't able to visit this past visit!

We were very surprised how many wineries were around the lake. The views of the lake were stunning and the landscape around was also beautiful. Many of the wineries had an abundance of dry wines - which were our favorite.

Having come up from South Africa, and hearing much of Californian wines, when we decided to visit Watkins Glen and found out there was an amazing wine route too, we were pleasantly surprised. We managed to visit 8 farms, but there are so many more,...More

Sorry to be late, April was very wet here keeping us busy and offline. The tour is the safest and you should get a nice cross section. Some will ask where you would like to visit. For the tasting rooms that charge I suggest... More

That is a great question, and there is no universally accurate answer: time of year, day of the week you're visiting, and a host of other factors play into this. Probably 30-45 minutes per winery is a good estimate. Visit... More
