We only went to one winery - it was nice. The wine was surprisingly expensive so we were not keen to visit more. The wine itself was only ok.More

Thank you for taking the time to visit one of our wineries, though we're sorry to hear that you weren't keen on the wine itself, nor the price. Hopefully you might consider visiting us again some other time, as we have so very many wineries,...More

Seneca Lake has close to 50 wineries; thus, one would need to take several days to stop at all of them! That said, the Seneca Lake area is gorgeous. We stopped at several wineries and had a wonderful time at all! There is a small...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
