  • Visiting the wineries surrounding Seneca Lake is always special. The drive is beautiful. The wineries are all unique in their own way, and some offer absolutely spectacular views. Along the trial you'll find breweries (beer, cider, meades, gin, vodka, etc.) and some delicious places to eat. The Seneca Lake Wine Trail Events are always a fun and affordable way to experience a wide array of wineries at an affordable price. As always, make sure you have a designated driver because there are a lot of wines to taste!
  • Very scenic drives. Most wines are fruity stuff. I did not get a lot of dry wine options here.
