Budget Travel highlights the Finger Lakes as one of the Six Great American Wine Regions.
WATKINS GLEN, NY – “Budget Travel” acknowledged New York’s Finger Lakes region as one of the Six Great American Wine Regions in an article published online at www.BudgetTravel.com last Friday. Add that accolade to the list of reasons why you should purchase your Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese (July 12-14) tickets now. The June 24 advance sale deadline is a few short weeks away and the opportunity to save is running out.
The Finger Lakes Region is among the “…lesser-known areas where Americans are producing world-class red and whites,” according to Budget Travel. The article exclaims, “New York’s Finger Lakes region is finally snagging some acclaim. With good reason: The country’s largest wine producer east of California, it’s also a prime travel destination, with green forests, glistening waters, and a smattering of charming small towns.”
The Finger Lakes Wine Festival features the largest collection of Empire State-produced wines. Nearly 90 wineries are scheduled to take part in the Finger Lakes Wine Festival including notable Finger Lake icons, Hazlitt, Glenora and Great Western Champagne.
Any time is great to visit The Glen, but the best time to visit and experience the varietals of the Finger Lakes is July 12-14 for the Finger Lakes Wine Festival.
Grab a One-Day Taster’s Pass for $30 to take in all the Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese has to offer on either Saturday or Sunday. Or, for just $40, spread the fun over the weekend and purchase a Two-Day Taster’s Pass, allowing you to enjoy the hundreds of wine varietals, outdoor cooking demonstrations, culinary classes and wine seminars.
