A typical weekend tour-

The following is an example of a typical weekend tour. A group drives to the Finger Lakes region on a Friday afternoon. They stay the night in a local hotel or bed and breakfast or cottege. On Saturday morning our Chauffeur picks up the group and heads for the wine trail. The wineries are open from 10am to 5pm and most groups like to start around 11am. We tour till 5pm. Touring and tasting at as many wineries as possible. On average, between tasting, buying wine, and driving to the next winery, groups under 20 persons spend 50 minutes per winery. At 5:00 pm the Chauffeur would generally take the group to a fine local restaurant where reservations are already made. After dinner the wine trail guide would take the group back to there place of accommodation. Sunday morning the group returns to their home(s).
