Reviewed By Trish E - Rochester, New York, United States

The place was mobbed, lots of drunks. The decor was cute but a bit of a theme park feel and the wines were too sweet for us. Two of the places have nothing but sweet fortified wines and one has "real" wine but the bartender was rude. We wanted to try certain ones but there were so many people he was just pouring at random and not even telling us what they were. He actually poured one wine on top of another in my glass and then said I was out of tastes even though I didn't get to taste it. Most of the places you had to elbow your way up to the bar. Felt like they were more into selling trinkets than making quality wines or experiences.

Went to Aurora specifically to visit this studio. I wasn't familiar with this designer so had no idea what to expect. WOW!! It was like being pulled into a fairy tale of Alice in Wonderland imagery. Highly recommend visiting all the areas. The grounds, the farmhouse, and the studio were brilliantly laid out and decorated. I would love to live here or at least decorate my whole house with these wonderfully whimsical designs.

Reviewed By 251ceh - Port Dover, Canada

We loved Muranda Cheese because they let you taste over a dozen cheeses and we all liked something different, proving that tastes are very subjective and there will always be something to somebody's liking. The woman was knowledgeable and friendly and cheeses were affordable. You can also look in the barn window and see the cows. Great stop!

Water to Wine Day Tours

Reviewed By 29why - Rochester, New York

Eight people arranged this trip, all couples. Having done wine tours before (driven, designated driver, van etc) we decided a boat tour would be idea. First let me say the day was awesome weather wise and that helps. But we could see that the boat was well protected if NOT good weather. It was simply a blast! We visited 3 wineries and had lunch at one. The captain was fun and entertaining with stories and information. The boat tour was not only fun the wineries where a blast and we loved the views, walks to/from AND sometimes van or open "Kubuka" rides(did I spell right?) trips to the wineries from the boat. Over all very highly recommended.....YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Knapp Winery & Vineyard Restaurant

A combination of winery and restaurant located on the slopes of Cayuga Lake; the location plays a vital role in creating the best micro-climate for the Knapp vineyards. Knapp produces over thirty types of wine including cordials and aperitifs. Enjoy outstanding Rieslings, Cabernet Francs, Chardonnays and much more. Wines made to suit a variety of palates. The vineyard restaurant, which is open from April through October, opens to a vineyard patio that faces west with a spectacular view of our Saperavi vines. Chef creates food using as many local products to ensure a true Finger Lakes wine country experience.

The regular lunch fare is complemented by some unusual appetizers, like the country pate (ham, pork, pickled onions, jam, olives, bread rounds). The butternut squash soup was scrumptious! And excellent vanilla bean cheesecake.
We sat outdoors on the patio and enjoyed the sunshine and cool breeze under the grape arbor.

We stopped at goose watch because they’re the only finger lakes winery with a viognier. It didn’t disappoint. We have stopped at Swedish hill every year (their sister winery) and somehow never made it here previously. We won’t make that same mistake again! Their traminette is also pretty good too!
