In 1986 the Seneca Lake Wine Trail was formed in the heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes region to attract more visitors to experience its rich history, beauty, and production of world-class wines. In 2016 the Seneca Lake Wine Trail celebrates its 30th Anniversary, and is the largest and most active wine trail in New York State with a community of over 35 wineries, a distillery, seven breweries and a meadery.
Working with more than 90 local businesses, four area Chambers of Commerce, and several tourism and regional organizations, the Seneca Lake Wine Trail has become a nationally and internationally recognized organization rivaling those in regions of California and Europe. The Trail implements innovative programs such as the Polar Passport and Wine Weekdays Passport, offering visitors a fun and affordable way to explore member wineries. Trail-wide events staged throughout the year, such as Pasta & Wine Weekend, Chocolate & Wine Weekend, Cruisin’ the Tropics Weekend, Spring Wine and Cheese Weekend, Smokin’ Summer Kickoff and the annual Deck the Halls weekends allow visitors to learn first-hand from winemakers and local chefs how to pair food and wine. Two new events will debut in 2016: Red Red Wine, which embraces the many terrific red wines the Finger Lakes region is rapidly becoming better known for, while Veggies & Varietals focuses on the increasing popularity of vegetarian dishes.
