Pack your bags, because it’s time to plan your visit to the ultimate wine lovers' destination. This East Coast haven boasts luxurious bed and breakfasts, elegant farm-to-table restaurants, and over 130 wineries to tour and sample. There’s really no better place to indulge your wine-loving side than the Finger Lakes. The region is comprised of 11 lakes scattered along 9,000 square miles and across 14 counties in upstate New York.
The fall in particular brings a brilliant grape harvest, and visitors flock to the wine trails canopied by the colorful autumn leaves. Christina Roberts, director of marketing and public relations for Finger Lakes Wine Country, says fall is also a spectacular time for foodies to tap into the impressive locally-grown foods. But what really makes this majestic region travel-worthy is the distinctive, European style wine.
