The Best Wine Tours in Geneva
Are you looking for something to do with a few friends? Maybe it’s a special occasion like a bachelorette weekend, or maybe it is even your honeymoon weekend. There are a lot of group activities out there. There are epic and scenic hikes through the mountains of upstate New York, there are pub crawls and wild nights awaiting you in any major city, and there is more fine dining in the area than any refined person could handle.
But what about an activity that has a little of everything, with elegance and refinement to spare?
Finger Lakes Winery Tours has been providing wine tours through the Geneva area since 2001. This experience has allowed us to become more than familiar with the famous vineyards that surround the marvelous Seneca Lake. With a wine tour, you get the rolling vistas of grape-vines, sparkling lakes, and beautiful vineyards. It has the freshness and fulfillment of any outdoor adventure, but with that little something extra. It is also an activity that all your friends can enjoy together. Our diverse fleet of luxury cars, SUVs and limousines can accommodate groups of any size.
What other activity could blend the social ease of a group out on the town, the great outdoors, and life’s finer things?
Wine Tours All Along Seneca Lake With Finger Lakes Winery Tours
Our wine tours typically get started right at the top of the great Seneca Lake, which spans the 34-mile distance down to the beautiful village of Watkins Glen. Around Seneca Lake, there are over 35 wineries and vineyards, so there is no shortage of beautiful sights, relaxing stops, and delicious wines.
The wine is a huge appeal of a wine tour, but there is also the scenery to behold. Wine you can taste, purchase, and take home with you. The scenery, though? That stays in Geneva.
You want to be able to give those vistas the thoughtfulness and time they deserve. Would you be able to enjoy your tour if you were driving? Likely not. You’d be focused on the foreign roads ahead of you. You’d be pausing for directions instead of pausing for a gorgeous view.
If you book a wine tour with Finger Lakes Winery Tours, you don’t have to be the odd one out. Yourself and all the other guests can enjoy the experience equally.
Benefits of Booking a Wine Tour
Tasting the wine is one of the major appeals of a wine tour. Unfortunately, you can’t do that when you’re the designated driver. You’re burdened with the responsibility and perpetually preoccupied with everyone’s safety. If you book a guided wine tour with Finger Lakes Winery Tours however, you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Not only that, but we’re also intimately knowledgeable about the wineries throughout the Geneva area. We’re not just chauffeurs, we’re also your knowledgeable tour guides with a passion for wine and the Geneva countryside. Who better to lead you through the fields of Geneva than a team like us?
Preparing for Your Wine Tour
At Finger Lakes Winery Tours, we aim to provide our clients with a relaxing, easy, enjoyable experience that seems so lacking in many vacation packages. Following intense itineraries and travel schedules can make vacations nearly as stressful as day-by-day life.
Finger Lakes Winery Tours eliminates these stresses, so you can focus on the important things: taking in the magnificent landscape, sampling delicious wines, and enjoying the experience with loved ones.
We have compiled this list of things to be mindful of as you plan your exciting escape with Finger Lakes Wine Tours.
When is the Best Time to Take a Wine Tour?
The simple answer is anytime! The Finger Lakes region is spectacularly scenic in all seasons.
Peak travel season is generally summer and fall, but off-season (winter and spring) is actually likely to be an even more personal experience. As the wineries are not quite so busy, you’ll have a better chance to have one-on-ones with the growers and learn more about the processes and secrets of fine wine making.
Consider also the activities, besides of course wine sampling, that you might like to do in the region. Perhaps you’re a winter warrior who loves skiing and snowshoeing, or have a penchant for all things autumn.
Any time of year, Finger Lakes Winery Tours would be honored to welcome you.
How Should I Decide Which Wineries to Tour?
That depends entirely on your party’s tastes and preferences.
While the Finger Lakes region is home to a great number of exceptional wineries, it generally isn’t advised to visit more than three or four in a day. Trying to frequent more will not only feel rushed and defeat the purpose of a relaxing vacation, but ‘palate fatigue’ will make it more difficult to discern wine flavors.
A little research will help you find the wineries best suited to you. For instance, are you a red or white drinker? Sweet or dry? Fruit wine or ice wine?
Determining your party’s preferences will make it easier to find a winery specializing in your favorites.
As always, Finger Lakes Winery Tours is happy to advise.
