The Best Wine Tour in the Finger Lakes with Experience! the Finger Lakes

Video Description

On this Airstream Life vLog, we get to take another awesome tour with Experience! The Finger Lakes. This time we are joining their Fine Wines of Southwest Seneca Wine tour. On this tour, we get transported to 3 different vineyards for tastings plus get an awesome lunch at a local food joint.

First stop is the Lakewood Winery. This is a larger winery in the area and has been growing for a very long time. We get an immersive stop here which means we have someone from the winery take us through the entire winemaking process. We get to see the barrel room, the vineyards, the grape presses and more all while sipping delicious wine. We also get a full tasting ending with their delicious port and locally made chocolate. Yum! We end up buying a couple of bottles since all the wineries gave us discounts for being part of the tour.
The next stop was lunch the FLX Wienery. This food joint specializes in local weiners, burgers and more. We enjoyed family style sides such as french fries, gluten-free onion strings, and kettle chips before digging into our burgers. We got to taste some delicious wine and beer here too to pair with our food. Yum! Don’t forget the table side honey roasted marshmallows to end the meal!

Our third stop was Barnstormer Winery where we had an elegant sit-down tasting with the tasting manager. Wow! We learned about the history or the vineyard, how the weather over the last couple of years has drastically affected the wine, and what makes them different being such a small boutique winery. Lovely!

Our last stop was at Bellangelo Winery where we once again got an immersive experience, this time with the owner and winemaker Chris. Chris showed us how to disgorge sparkling wine and explained the whole process. We even got to taste the freshly disgorged sparkling rose. Amazing! Once again we got to have a sit-down tasting, this time in their tasting room overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake. What an amazing way to end the tour.

What made this different from us going touring on our own was the amount of knowledge we were shared on this tour. We got to feel the passion from the winemakers themselves and try things we otherwise would never have known to try. It made us feel like we were insiders in the finger lakes wine community. We highly recommend taking one of Experience! the FInger Lakes’s tours if you are ever in the area in the future. You will not regret it.
