In the meantime this:
served nicely for a five-day trip to the Finger Lakes wine country.
My favorite wine tasting place in the Keuka Lake area is definitely Bully Hill.
They have red grapes,
and white grapes,
fields of grapes,
and shelves of wine!
That photo has my favorites--Sweet Walter in all its varieties. I like my wine sweet and whoever Sweet Walter is or was, he nailed it with these. We also stopped at a few other wineries and added another bottle here and there. My cabinet is officially restocked!
We didn't spend all our time wine tasting, however. We managed a few other things--hiking and biking. Brian did most of the biking cuz there are more hills than I felt like conquering. I'm more of a casual bicyclist. I shall post about a couple of the hikes later. There are some beautiful trails in the area.
Must leave you with a few pics of a couple of the, places we dined. First, this beautiful upscale restaurant--Esperanza Mansion. Great food and this beautiful view of the lake from the patio.
I swore I would not do it, but finally gave in. I just couldn't leave without trying Big Doug's meaner wiener. No bad, not bad at all. Sweet potato fries were pretty good, too.
