Standing Stone Vineyards, big yellow hard to miss barn

Standing Stone Vineyards is hard to miss along the Eastern side of Seneca Lake.  The big yellow barn with adjoining tasting room is like a beacon in a sea of green grape leaves and vineyard posts.  The vines that belong to Standing Stone are some of the oldest Vinifera (European) vines and rootstock in the area.  The quality is easy to taste.

Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars - Hello Dry

French names on American wineries often sounds a bit like putting on airs. In some cases they may be, but in the case of Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars it has more to do with a nearby small hamlet on Seneca Lake that bears the same name, than any French lineage. Lamoreaux Landing, the wine cellar, is located on the Eastern side of Seneca Lake and is the first winery to the North on the very winery dense section of the wine trail known as the Banana Belt.

Small Wineries, Big Wine in the Finger Lakes

With all the rush to be bigger, better, faster, stronger, and supersized, sometimes it is nice to slow down and enjoy the smaller side of life. While many of the larger wineries on Seneca Lake will offer you the experience of being caught up in a crowd of busses and limos full of people having a good time, there are others that will gladly turn away a bus so that you can enjoy what they have to offer. The smaller wineries have a lot to offer.
