The Best of New York State Wines
The Finger Lakes Wine Festival pairs over 80 wineries with breweries, music, culinary classes, and regional artisans to bring you one of the summer's hottest events. Discover, taste and enjoy the best wines New York State has to offer, including many varieties from local Finger Lakes Wineries.
Cabernets, Chardonnays, Moscatos – oh my!
Pour, sip, eat and repeat. With more than 600 wines available for tasting and purchase, the Finger Lakes Wine Festival is your one stop shop for New York wines. Unlike a traditional wine tour where you have to organize transportation from one winery to the next, the world-renowned Watkins Glen International racetrack houses everything you want and need in one beautiful location.
Between tastings, fill up on gourmet food, enjoy live music, and browse the wares of a variety of arts and craft vendors. If you're looking for a real thrill, take a pace car ride around the track! For those who prefer grains to grapes, the onsite beer garden will quench your thirst. With so much to do (and drink,) it might be best to stay the night. On-site camping is available, or enjoy a relaxing evening at one of the excellent Corning hotels. Don't miss out on this fun and fantastic opportunity!
