New York Wine

Though the first successful North American wine production is often credited to California, New York is where the industry was first pioneered in the United States.

  • 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.
