I’ve enjoyed visiting wineries in New York State’s Finger Lakes region for over twenty years.  Sometimes I plan a full day of wine touring, visiting selected wineries on one of the several wine trails in the region.  Other times I may simply be passing through on my way to visit family and friends or on a camping trip and will drop in to a winery or two that I just happen to pass along the way.  The attraction is simple: fine wine, interesting people, and breathtaking views.

This blog is my way of sharing the Finger Lakes experience with you using wine as the vehicle to bring you into the region.  You will see many aspects of the Finger Lakes along the way, with wine being the common thread that holds them all together.  I hope you enjoy the journey.
