A short leisurely drive from the main gates of Bachar Farms lay some of the most enjoyable and world renowned wines in the country.
It has been known for some time now that wine produced in the Finger Lakes Wine Country of New York can rival those of long established more recognized vineyards around the world. There are more than 100 vineyards in the region all centered around Seneca , Cayuga and Keuka Lakes. The micro climates created by the three lakes provide the perfectly breezy days in summer and winter days that are not as harsh, that together help produce world class grape growing conditions.
With the rising trends of lighter wines the Finger Lake Riesling has shone through as the champion of the region. It has been hailed as such by Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. Though certainly Riesling has taken center stage it is not the only wine produced in the area to tantalize your taste buds. As of late there has been much talk about the cooler climate red wines such as the Cabernet Franc. What ever your pleasure a trip to the area is a must on your wine bucket list.
Many area vineyards give tours and will take you out on the wine trails. But if a more local sampling is more to your liking stop in at the White Birch Tasting Room in the village of Skaneateles. Once inside you have a plethora of wines and vintages from all over the region at your finger tips. Only a short drive from your private Farm house retreat you can enjoy a local Riesling or the latest Pino Noir. The tasting room is open Wednesday to Saturday from Noon until 7 PM and Sundays from Noon until 5 PM.
The Finger Lake vineyards enjoy year round guests from all over the country. Summer and Autumn are certainly the busiest seasons but they can still be enjoyed during the winter months. Contact them for specialized tours and wine tastings during those months. You might even get a more private or personal experience.
So this winter come, stay with us at the Farm with your family and friends and enjoy the Finger Lake Wine Country experience up close and personal.
