The Napa of the East Coast

sheldrake1Other areas that would like to be known as the “Napa of” do not have the acreage or the number of wineries that you’ll find in Napa. However there are enough wineries to spend a few days to a week or longer.  On the east coast of the United States a large concentration of wineries is along New York’s Finger Lakes.

There are more than 100 wineries along Cayuga (pictured), Seneca, Keuka and Canandaigua Lakes in New York. Some will take awhile to drive to while others are just minutes apart. Many of these wineries offer beautiful scenery with the vineyards sloping down toward the lake.

Just as in Napa, there is a range of winery tasting room experiences. Some tasting rooms are large while others are quaint. The area isn’t as crowded as Napa, however if a wine trail is sponsoring an event there will be large crowds in the tasting rooms.

There is ample lodging in Ithaca, Watkins Glen, and Geneva with vineyards just minutes away from these towns. Several bed and breakfasts are scattered along the lakes. Check out the Halsey House. Glenora Wine Cellars also has an Inn.
