? Fall is such an exciting time in Finger Lakes Wine Country. Fall is the season of both outstanding beauty and bounty and the region has plenty of both. This weekend the Keuka Lake Wine Trail invites you to take part in the Harvest Tour of Food & Wine. The eight wineries on the trail will be serving delicious harvest-themed dishes made with regional foods paired with their delicious wines. Enjoy this two-day event celebrating all that we love about fall.
