The Finger Lakes Region, located in upstate New York, is one of the fastest-growing and most popular wine tasting regions in the country. In addition to being home to a number of highly-rated Finger Lakes Wineries, the area is also home to some wonderful breweries, distilleries, and restaurants.
During normal times, which we hope to return to soon, the area is also home to several food-and-wine-centric events. Needless to say, the Finger Lakes is a fantastic destination for food, wine, and craft beverage lovers of all varieties, not to mention an exquisite place to relax, unwind, and soak up the pretty natural surroundings.
Though the Finger Lakes wineries are one of the star attractions of this area, it's certainly not the only reason to visit this charmingly romantic getaway destination. The area is also a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts!

The Finger Lakes region is absolutely beautiful, and perhaps best known as a great getaway destination in upstate New York. That is especially true for wine-lovers! Finger Lakes wineries have worked hard over the past several decades to cultivate their reputations and produce some of the country's top wines. It's actually the 3rd largest wine-producing region in the country.
Today, there are more than 100 Finger Lakes wineries calling this area home, mostly scattered around Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga Lakes - but with a few up near Canandaigua Lake and beyond as well. The Finger Lakes Region is particularly well-known for its production of aromatic white varietals like Riesling and Gewurztraminer but it's also gaining popularity with cool-climate reds like Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir. In short, Finger Lakes wineries really do offer something for everyone.
Most Finger Lakes Wineries are open year-round, and tasting appointments are generally not needed during normal times. We've included some of the top-rated Finger Lakes Wineries here, broken down by the lake it's on/near, to help you plan your adventures through New York's scenic wine country.
While these 15 Finger Lakes Wineries should certainly be on your short list of things to do in the Finger Lakes Area, much more doesn't involve sipping and swirling! In fact, the Finger Lakes area is home to an incredible diversity of things to do, as well as some truly beautiful destinations.
