The Finger Lakes region, approximately 250 miles from New York City, has some of the most spectacular gorges and glens in America and, of course, the 11 lakes designated as "Finger Lakes.”
The region is also home to America’s second largest wine industry. Over 100 wineries and vineyards are centered around Seneca, Cayuga, Canandaigua, and Keuka Lake.
The main grape varieties grown are: Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Vidal Blanc, and Seyval Blanc.
Two of the states largest and most interesting cities, Rochester and Syracuse, offer numerous cultural and historical places of interest. Add a few quaint canal side villages and you’ve got a vacationer’s delight.
