www.atwatervineyards.com/
Tasting Fee: $5 per person ($7 per person for groups)

One of my favorite wineries on Seneca Lake, this vineyard has consistently had wines that both my boyfriend and I loved.

Silver Springs/Don Giovanni Wines
4408 Rte 414 Burdett, NY 14818

Fun winery run by a family, with Giovanni himself as the head wine maker and family patriarch. They specialize in mixed wines, combining grapes from different varietals and harvests to create their own unique taste.

Hazlitt

Great casual and low-key winery that’s inside a barn and serves delicious (and free!) salty popcorn while you taste. They’re known for their “Red Cat” wine, which is popular among college students for its easy drinkability as a solid table wine (but I like it too!)

This is the winery for you if you like sweet wine. I’m not a sweet wine drinker so I found that even their semi-sweet tasting flight just wasn’t good for me. That being said, my friend who enjoys sweet wine found a few wines she liked.

Shalestone Vineyards
9681 NY-414, Hector, NY 14841

Shalestone Vineyards ONLY produces small-batch red wine, so this is a perfect place for red wine lovers. The property is small, but the beautiful hand-built tasting room is definitely a favorite of mineon the lake.

About Kailee Crawford

I'm an Oregon-born travel addict living in New York making the most of my vacation days. I started this travel blog to keep track of my bucket list and it's morphed into a journal of my adventures and recommendations for things to see, do, eat and drink. My hope is that I can help other travelers find their way. I want to try everything once and to live a life without regrets or missed opportunities. I call my philosophy on life the "the death bed philosophy" - I want to be laying in my death bed reflecting on all of the things I've done and seen in this world, not the things I wished I had done. It's not meant to be morbid, just a reminder to take risks, go out of your comfort zone and live life to the fullest. ♫♫♫♫♫ "You were only waiting for this moment to be free" --- "Blackbird" by The Beatles This quote is undoubtedly my favorite quote because it's a reminder of the infinite opportunities available to us. That in each moment there is an opportunity to find true happiness, and a sense of freedom when you're doing what you love. Freedom to explore, to create, to improve oneself, and to find fulfillment even during the 9 to 5 grind. ♫♫♫♫♫ I'm an incredibly pensive person with a wide variety of interests. In addition to traveling, my guilty pleasures include wine, food, music, art, languages and history. I grew up a nerd, watching The History Channel and reading The Lord of the Rings with my Dad. I'm driven by my pursuit of knowledge and growth and most passionate when I'm able to be creative. ♫♫♫♫♫
