Highlights: America’s second largest wine region is practically next door in the enchanting Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. We will get started with a 90 minute narrated cruise of the Erie. We’ll enjoy a delightful visit to MacKenzie-Childs, known the world over for its whimsical, hand painted ceramics and home accessories. Then we’ll sample some of the very best wines along the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, stopping first at Long Point Winery for a tour and tasting. We’ll drive through the beautiful Cornell University campus and photo stop at scenic Buttermilk Falls. Heading north on the East side of the lake, we’ll stop to view Taughannock Falls which plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs. Further up the lake is Knapp Winery, where we enjoy another tasting. On our final day we will visit the magnificent Sonnenberg Gardens and its Mansion. Next, is a visit to the New York Culinary and Wine Kitchen where we will be treated to a cooking demonstration with a luncheon and wine pairing.
