In 1986 the Seneca Lake Wine Trail was formed in the heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes region to attract more visitors to experience its rich history, beauty, and production of world-class wines. Today, Seneca Lake Wine Trail is the largest and most active wine trail in New York State with a community of over 30 wineries, a distillery, three brewerie, cider producer and a meadery.
Established in 1985, the Keuka Lake Wine Trail is the perfect place for your wine holiday, offering the most diverse group of wineries of any destination in the Finger Lakes. Whether your taste is dry or sweet, fruity or austere, our vintages of Vinifera, Hybrid and Native wines are sure to please every palate. These cool-climate wines are particularly enjoyable with food. Food and wine pairings are highlighted during the Keuka Lake Wine Trail’s signature events throughout the year, as well as in select winery shops that sell locally made food items.
We are actively seeking and directing both entrepreneurs and mentors to the New York Business Mentor Program. It is, to put it simply, Linked In meets Match.com, and works to partner entrepreneurs with experienced business leaders to help answer questions, mentor and help businesses grow and flourish in New York State.
