Finger Lakes Wine Tour

Greg thank you – although it feels like summers coming to an end there is one thing that you can still do well into the fall that’s tour are many vineyards and for one last taste of summer here’s a look at a tour we took the summer experiencing the finger lakes with some special guests.. We all know Italy in California are known for their luscious red wine but Orlando is here to tell you that you don’t have to go all the way to Roma or napa to get a good glass of red. Well you do it okay first up Standing Stone Vineyards for a private vineyard tour and barrel tasting owner Marty mrs. ski showed Emma just how it’s done but maybe we should grab some glasses that’s better then it was time to move to the tasting room where we got to taste the difference between wine out of the barrel and out of the bottle paired with some local cheese then it was on to the next stop with another breathtaking tasting room owners Paul Brock with his winemaking expertise and Shannon Brock with her experience in hospitality create this relaxing environment with some world-class wines the group tried a few for themselves and came up with a delicious local pairing but before we knew it we woke from this wine tasting dream and were whisked away to the next stop Hector wine company where we go from tasting out of the barrel to tasting out of the tank the production room is full of huge tanks oak barrels and the company’s own bottling and labeling line then it was time for some more tastings and another one of laura’s creative pairings Laura’s tasty suggestion got our sweet tooth going so we decided to make one last stop for some out-of-this-world wine and chocolate pairings what better way to end a tour with a little red wine and a lot of chocolate you’re the tour features Damiani’s incredible Reds with regionally made chocolates everything from black tea dark chocolate to passion fruit designed specifically to go with the wine always leave it as kind of like the crescendo to end on a sweet ending to an incredible day you think Damiani’s wine cellar sums up the entire experience perfectly um one of the things we love is celebrating where we live the culinary bounty that we live in the great producing region is fantastic and I think hopefully you’ll agree when you try the wines that we really can produce it on very full-bodied wonderful red and world class whites
