New York State

New York Wines

The New York Wines site is a good starting point for detailed information on its five wine regions ? Long Island; Finger Lakes; Hudson River; Niagara Escarpment; and Lake Erie

Keuka LakeFor Torontonians, the Finger Lakes region is a great weekend excursion from Toronto and the Finger Lakes Tourism site is another useful resource. The Finger Lakes region is divided into four sub regions. See the Canandaigua Lake; Cayuga Lake; Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake wine trail sites for full details including the wineries around the lake; trail events, restaurants, accommodation etc. I particularly recommend Keuka Lake. Hammondsport, at the south end of the lake, is a great place to stay and/or dine out.


Quality Wine ToursIf you don’t want to drive, Quality Winery Tours provides standard winery tours seven days a week to Finger Lakes wineries. Or you can customize your own tour. You can choose from a Luxury Sedan, Limousine, Van or Mini Bus.


Finger Lakes Wine FestivalIf you are in the Watkins Glen area in July, check out the Finger Lakes Wine Festival. It offers the largest showcase of New York State wines with over 80 wineries, wine seminars, regional artisans, culinary classes and live bands.
