Luckily, I married a guy from the Finger Lakes in New York so trips to visit the in-laws include winery hopping!
We visited Seneca Lake on Saturday afternoon. Seneca is scattered with small and large wineries producing high-quality or those fruity wines. There's something for everyone and you cannot beat the views.
We visited Ventosa Vineyards. It was like stepping into a Tuscan winery with an elaborate building, superb views of the vines and lake and a cafe cooking up Italian fare. A perfect place to enjoy a glass (or bottle) of wine, grab a bite to eat and take in the views.
Guests select up to 5 wines to sample for $3! I chose to try the Tocai Fruilano, Vino Bianco (Tocai, Chardonnay, Riesling & Pinot Gris), Rosato (Lemberger), Pinot Noir and Cabernet.
I was really impressed with the Rosato, a rosé of Lemberger. Bright pink in color, crisp with a little residual sugar of 1.2%. I left with a bottle of this and can't wait to enjoy it during this Spring season.
I truly enjoyed the experience and wines at Ventosa, highly recommend.
