Wish you were here!


Over the last few months, the Finger Lakes Wine Country community has been working hard to lessen the spread of COVID-19, and we will continue to do so. On June 26, all five counties in Finger Lakes Wine Country met the requirements to safely begin Phases 4 of 4 of the New York State reopening guidelines. For more information on the phased reopening, visit https://forward.ny.gov/.

Finger Lakes Wine Country is poised to welcome visitors as each phase of reopening occurs, but this will take time, and your patience is appreciated. It is important for guests to communicate with accommodations, dining establishments, wineries, and any other businesses they plan to visit during their trip for a clear understanding of what to expect so they can enjoy their time in the region. In New York State, everyone is required to wear a mask in public and maintain at least six feet distance from others to meet social distancing guidelines. While we continue to navigate the safe reopening of Finger Lakes Wine Country, we will keep you in the loop. We encourage you to review the additional resources linked below

Our Finger Lakes Wine Country community can’t wait to welcome you back. Our smiles may be hidden behind a mask, but you’ll feel our warmth and excitement because we’ve missed you! We mean it when we say we wish you were here because it’s just not the same without you.
