Wine Tasting in the Finger Lakes of New York When to Visit the Finger Lakes The Finger Lakes Wine Festival in July is one of the largest wine festivals in the East, featuring over 70 wineries, great food, and exciting entertainment. There are many other annual events including the Seaplane Splash-In, Wine on Ice, Tapas and Wine Weekend, GlassFest, Wineglass Marathon weekend, and more. Plan your Trip There are many lakeside vacation rentals available for families and groups. We stayed at the Gulfstream House in Hammondsport, which was just a half a block from the Keuka lakefront or the town square. For the comfort of a hotel, we stayed at the Staybridge Suites in Staybridge Suites Corning, which was walking distance to the Corning Museum Of Glass Welcome Centeror downtown Corning. Getting there — Corning is a four-hour drive from New York City. If you are staying in town you can walk or take a water taxi from OnKeuka water taxi to dinner and wineries or you can rent a car. There are plenty of other activities to do in the area including: Stand up paddling boarding, kayaking and biking with Keuka Watersports at Keuka Lake Hiking in Stony Brook State Park Taking a glider ride at the National Soaring Museum in Elmira Blowing glass at the gorgeous Corning Museum Of Glass Welcome Center The Rockwell Museum – A Smithsonian Affiliate — Upstate New York’s only Smithsonian Affiliate Museum with a world class collection of traditional western and contemporary Native American art Glenn H Curtiss Museum — Glenn H. Curtiss held the title of ‘Fastest Man on Earth’ for four years of his life. The Glenn H. Curtiss Museum revolves around teaching the world about his accomplishments and ranks among the top aviation museums. If you are looking for where to eat, I’d recommend: The Waterfront on Keuka Lake (take the water taxi for great views and leave room for the caramel apple pie!) Keuka Bakery Company on the Village Square in Hammondsport with delicious baked goods, sandwiches, and coffee in a fun and funky atmosphere The Village Tavern Restaurant & Inn in Hammondsport with great salads and classics like kielbasa Jenkins Farm Market & Deli in Arkport Have you been to Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes? Do you have any favorite wineries to recommend? Note: Our trip was hosted by Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes Tourism. All opinions are my own.
