If one is driving this trail for the view and experience, then it is lovely. If one is driving it to visit different wineries, then it is a disappointment. On the east side of the lake, there are very few wineries to visit. The west side is more abundant so if wineries are your thing, the west side is the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Unfortunately, the east side doesn't offer many different options for wineries, but they certainly aren't disappointing on their own. More

All 16 wineries on the tour were dog friendly! Most wineries had a very good selection of white and red wines with some unique varieties developed by Cornell. There are places to eat at either end of the trail even during the off season, and a nice creamery in the middle. A very pleasant day in the Finger Lakes area!

This was amazing. My friends and family rented a house on Cayuga Lake to go on the wine trail. You buy a ticket for $45 and you get a grapevine wreath, a wine glass and you visit 16 wineries. Each winery gives you and ornament for your wreath and you get 4-5 tastings at each winery. It was so much... More

Event is well organized. Good value for the ticket price. I wouldn't go on a Saturday again - far too many people and not as enjoyable as a Sunday.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, and it's always great to hear about an event! You're right, Sunday's are certainly the calmer of the 2 days and lends itself to be a more enjoyable day. More

Found great wineries with spectacular views! Wish there was more opportunities for places to eat in the off season. Found many other visitors trying to find a cafe or bistro open for lunch as well. Published materials and maps were helpful.

This was our first time at Cayuga lake. We've been to a couple of events at Seneca lake, though, and overall I can say I prefer Seneca to Cayuga, though we did enjoy ourselves on this holiday trail event.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review! The couple's ticket is only 1 ticket for 2 people, so perhaps a blank one got stuck to the stamped ticket when it was mailed out.
