As Billy Joel sings, “Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighborhood” and I am suggesting for your next wine get away, you consider New York Finger Lakes region.

Information about wine trails, tours, events, tastings, and much more can be found at, or Google any of the above-mentioned wineries. You will not be disappointed!

John, now retired, will continue to write about wine and craft beer. He now has more time to enjoy both beverages and plans to visit more places that grow grapes and produce wine with an occasional brewery along the way.
