Canandaigua Wine Trail

heron-hill-wine-tasting-canandaigua-wine-trail.jpgThe Canandaigua Wine Trail is a small but mighty wine trail. The Canandaigua Wine Trail starts in Fairport, runs through downtown Canandaigua and along the western side of Canandaigua Lake all the way to Naples. It's 41 miles (66 kilometers) of Finger Lakes wine tasting, food tastings, and local people meeting fun. The trail is one of the more diverse with stops at large and small wineries, two wine centers and a brewery, with plenty of shops, restaurants and breathtaking scenery along the way.

What else can you do on this trail? Here's just a few quick ideas: Eat grape pie (featured on the Food network); catch a brew; take in the Canandaigua Wine Walk event, go to the Naples Grape Festival, take a sky ride at Bristol Mountain eat a brew and brat at Arbor Hill, take a selfie at the popular scenic overlook just north of Naples on County Road 12, visit a rose garden at Sonnenberg.

Wine Trail Passports offer a great way to track your progress and save money. They are available at member wineries as well as at the Finger Lakes Visitors Connection office in Canandaigua.
