Seneca Lake

Build Your Own Itinerary

Our highly experiential tours have been the gold-standard in the Finger Lakes wine region for 13 years.  Demand for them often exceeds the supply of our premium, sommelier-crafted, fully-inclusive tours. Therefore, in partnership with the best wineries and craft beverage producers in the Finger Lakes region, we have created the option for you to build your own itinerary from a selection of premium tasting experiences designed for guests looking for the level of quality and immersion they have come to expect from our tours. You build your itinerary by selecting a morning, afternoon and lunch experience on the lake of your choosing.  How you get to your appointments is up to you.  These itineraries are designed to provide you the highest quality experience at each location. They are longer and more in-depth than a regular tasting, so we recommend selecting two wine tasting experiences and lunch.  This is the best way to truly get the most out of your personally-curated day on Seneca Lake.
