Finger Lakes Wineries

Finger Lakes: Winery Weekend

This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated our Anniversary with a trip to the Finger Lakes in New York. It’s a beautiful area, with over 100 wineries in and around the lakes, of which there are 11 total. We stayed at a beautiful Inn on Seneca Lake, called the Inn at Glenora Wine Cellars.

On our way down to the Inn at Glenora, we stopped at several of the wineries along the way. Each of the wineries have wine tastings. It’s nice to get a sample of many of their wines. I usually find a favorite and purchase one (or two) after the tasting. A few of the Wineries we visited were Fox Run Vineyards, Anthony Road Wine Company and Miles Wine Cellars.

In addition to having fabulous wines, they are beautiful locations to visit. The views are spectacular and the atmosphere is very inviting. Many of the wineries have cafes, restaurants and host weddings or parties. It’s not uncommon to see tour busses full of bachelorettes celebrating a bridal shower.

The accommodations at the Inn at Glenora were wonderful. It was quiet, private and had amazing views. We were given a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy upon our arrival as well as a free wine tasting. They also have a restaurant on premises called Veraisons. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had a more casual dinner in town (Dundee) and enjoyed breakfast at the Veraisons Restaurant. The food was wonderful, as was the view! I could have stayed there all day. We were so fortunate with the weather we had all weekend, there was barely a cloud in the sky.

This was such a nice way to celebrate our Anniversary. I can’t wait to go back, I mean, just look at the sunrise!
