  • The Lake Ontario Wine Trail is new and developing with six wineries: Casa Larga, Ashley Lynn, Mayers Lake Ontario, J.D.Winer Cellars, Young Summer and Thorpe. Some very nice wines being produced from them and a fun day of tasting.

  • You must rent a limo and tour Seneca lake. Go through a company that knows the wineries well. There are too many to stop at all and there are some real gems in the mix. Rieslings are the traditional highlight, but other types competes for attention, too! The Gewurztraminer is excellent.
