Editorial Reviews

Review

“The next wave in rural chic.”—Travel and Leisure“The glacier-scarred landscape of the Finger Lakes region in northwestern New York is a great place to hike, ski, fish, and swim. The sloping terrain and complex soil are hospitable to more than 80 wineries, many of which have sprung up in the past decade....You may even find the region reminiscent of the budding Napa Valley of the late 1970s.” —Time Magazine

From the Publisher

*A food and wine guide to the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, featuring profiles, tasting notes, contact information, and recipes from the area’s wineries, dairies, organic farms, orchards, cafes, inns, ice cream makers, brewing companies, blueberry farms, honey producers, u-pick farms, taverns, maple syrup companies, tea rooms, cider producers, and more.

By Lee Brink on March 24, 2006
Format: Paperback
I live in the Central New York region just east of the Finger Lakes. I work with people who live in the region and I road trip quite a bit in the area when the weather warms up, so I have a "mile-wide and an inch deep" knowledge of the area.

I consider this book a "lite" travel guide because it doesn't cover much of what's in the area, but it covers what it does in great depth. It focuses on what the cover says, and nothing more. It doesn't cover many eateries outside of the population centers, and skips a lot of the "hole in the wall" restaurants, diners, and stands that offer great food but are a bit off the beaten path.

If you want to focus on wineries and want some in depth knowledge about thoose wineries this is the book. Beyond that you will need to look elsewhere for information.

This book was very useful to have on vacation -- his restaurant reviews were a big help in terms of types of cuisine available and the winery reviews were very specific about what types of wines they produce and what he liked when he went tasting. It was also nice to know how formal restaurants were before you went.

Format: Paperback
This is a great insider's guide to the wineries and restaurants of the Finger Lakes regions. Other books give better background on the varieties of grapes and other local attractions, but this one is the tops in terms of covering the wineries and restaurants.

The restaurant recommendations are great and give you an idea of the menu and entree offerings. The winery listings give profiles of the winery owners with entertaining "back stories" -- all very helpful when you are planning your itinerary.

Very easy to slip into your suitcase or backpack.

I give this book a five-grape rating!
