Pull out your tropical shirts, put on your sunglasses, go sockless in your boat shoes, wear your favorite beach hat, and join us for a weekend of relaxation in the tropics . . . just remember, life is what we make it! This weekend (March 25-27), enjoy a self-guided tour "cruising" the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, visiting over 30 unique wineries, each with their own tropical theme, over the 2-1/2 day weekend of "fun in the tropics".

Here’s your chance to break out of the winter doldrums and let your palate celebrate tropical-themed wine and food pairings. Visit the Trail, enjoy some great wine, sample the tropical dishes served at each of the participating wineries, and enjoy the many activities and themes that each winery takes special care to create. What better way to escape winter, than to cruise around the Trail sampling wines, eating unique food and having a great time with your friends and family!
