Attraction details
Owner description: Celebrating over 25 years of history, diversity and hospitality. Discover the most rewarding Wine Trail in the Finger Lakes. It was here in 1860 that the first bonded winery was established. It was also here that the first vinifera vines were planted, sparking a renaissance in winemaking. Keuka offers the most diverse group of wineries of any destination in the Finger Lakes. Whether your taste is dry or sweet, fruity or austere, our vintages are sure to please.

I know it has been mentioned before, but if you intend to do Keuka Lake wineries this is a must. For $12 you get free wine tastings at 7 wineries. Most wine tastings cost $3 to $5 so this is a good savings. There are also coupons for wine and purchases at the wineries as well as local restaurants (Switzerland Inn and Keuka Restaurant) and bed and breakfasts (Steamboat Castle and Los Gatos) to name a few. You can buy it online or at any of the participating wineries although it is recommended that you call ahead to make sure they have them in stock. It is good any day of the week through the end of the year. Some wineries are not included in the passport such as Bully Hill (great restaurant and museum) and Dr. Frank (award winning Riesling). These are worth a visit also.

Spent a delightful weekend in Penn Yan and visited several wineries along the Keuka Wine Trail. Friendly people and good wine were plentiful. Not such a busy time of the year so we met some owners and winemakers during our visits. Certainly check out Keuka Spring and Dr. Frank's.

It may be winter but it is still a good time to visit the Keuka Lake area and the wine trail. Too many choices for a weekend but I would suggest Dr. Frank, Heron Hill, and Keuka Spring to start. Penn Yan makes a good base to visit from with nice B&B choices. Avoid the chain hotels but check out the local restaurants

We stayed at Trimmer House B&B in Penn Yan which proved to be a perfect location for our wine trail weekend. The wineries were in full holiday swing with lots of good selections. Dr. Frank's is one of our favorites but Rooster Hill and Keuka Spring are also top notch. Too many wineries for one weekend so we will visit again soon!
