Bath National Cemetery

Reviewed By Terry B - Bath, New York

This final resting site for veterans from many of our nation's wars is a sobering experience. The beautiful view of acre after acre of headstones honoring so many of the dead is awe-inspiring. Particularly noteworthy are the graves of soldiers who lost their lives in the war of 1812, returned here within just the past few years from Canada.

St. Thomas Episcopal Church

Reviewed By JBradBenson - Bath, New York

A small but friendly congregation. Great music, especially the choir. Good sermon and friendly worship. They warmly welcome visitors. This little church does impressive outreach for the community. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and sure lives up to that designation. Amazing interior; has beautiful chapel and 16th century Italian paintings in the altar area (who knew?!).

Drove to Dr. Frank's because of their exceptional wines, but our hostess was so knowledgeable my wife wants to take courses. Dr. F was the man who gave the local wineries their firm foundation. The selection was fantastic

Bully Hill Vineyards Winery

Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine country, this family-owned winery is popular for its humorous tours, spectacular scenery and artsy wine labels.

Reviewed By BFalls-JT - Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania

My wife and I recently visited this winery. It is a fairly large complex with something for everyone: nice view of Keuka Lake; free parking; tasting room; sweet wines; dry wines; tours; wine museum; restaurant; and a nice gift shop. We did a tasting which costs $1 per sample. They have a fairly extensive selection of dry and sweet wines (of both vinifera and labrusca varieties). Found the tasting to be a bit rushed and lacked a bit of the personal attention experienced in some tasting rooms. We did find and purchase two dry wines that we liked. We also visited the gift store and purchased a gift with a discount received in the tasting room. Believe most visitors will find something to like about this winery.

Heron Hill Winery

Heron Hill Winery, rated as one of the most spectacular tasting rooms in the world by Travel + Leisure, is nestled into a hillside overlooking scenic Keuka Lake in New York's Finger Lakes region. For over 40 years, our family-owned winery has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of cool climate winemaking. Establishing our heritage among some of the first vinifera wineries in the Finger Lakes, John and Josephine Ingle founded Heron Hill Winery in 1977. Through perseverance and long-term dedication to excellence in winemaking, Heron Hill Winery has become a world-class destination for wine as well as a wedding event venue. For the Ingles, practicing sustainability is a way of life. Respect for the land in how we farm our estate vineyards, and respect for the consumer by offering wines with an authentic sense of place and by providing visitors with a friendly and informative experience.

Reviewed By Jaime P

Heron Hill was, by far, our favorite of all the wineries we visited during our stay at Keuka Lake. The building itself is beautiful, the atomosphere is nice without being too party-ish or too stuffy. The wineslinger knew her stuff as well. And the wine? SUPER easy to drink (and I'm definitely not a wine connoisseur!). We will be returning to this place during our next trip up.

I had no idea there were so many boat builders in the Finger Lakes in years past. Amazing to see the many styles and types of craft that were made in small shops and even in local people's garages. A group of volunteers were working to restore a tourist boat in their shop and were most anxious to share what they were doing with us. Very interesting!

Pleasant Valley Wine Company

Reviewed By Julie B - Sherwood, Oregon

While there's a small museum and of course wine/sherry/champagne tasting, the tour really makes the visit to Pleasant Valley shine. They have numerous buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and have the dubious honor of being US Bonded No. 1 (first winery to be taxed in the US). After climbing into a van, tour-takers are driven back up the hill and across the street to wander through some of the original stone and wood buildings. See massive Redwood tanks (yes Redwood!), learn of the winery's history and its unique Solaire and fractional blending method for making sherry, and marvel at the architecture, wine barrels, and furnishings. Before planning your outing, be sure to call the winery. They are often short-staffed and tours may only run on weekends, generally on the hour from 11am-3pm.

Keuka Lake Vineyards

Reviewed By Wende L - Loudonville, Ohio

We almost passed right by this winery, which is in a small farmhouse and easily overlooked. But we were so glad we stopped. These were the best dry whites we had anywhere, and the several Rieslings we tried were all top notch. After praising them effusively, we got a little sample of their $40 variety thrown in. It was indeed delicious. My husband tried several dry reds and said they were all excellent too. There's no restaurant or patio here, and not a lot of space, but it's a must if you're a serious wine drinker who likes it dry. One of our favorites.
