Upstate New York : Corning + Seneca Lake Wineries

Under the Oaks blog: Upstate New York : Corning + Seneca Lake Wineries #fingerlakeswinecountry

Happy Thursday! I am more happy than ever to see the weekend up ahead. It has been a long but good week back home and, even though we will spend most of our weekend cleaning and landscaping, I’m so ready for the weekend. We got in late Sunday and it has pretty much been non-stop since.

I’m really excited to share some trip photos with you! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen some of these already since I went a little instanuts on the trip. I just couldn’t help it! Upstate is so beautiful this time of year.

This post is pretty much about the first half our our week. We spent most of the days at my mom’s in Corning and a day at some of the Seneca Lake wineries.  While home, Jason and I decided we wanted to work on my mom’s basement. At the end of the week we are about halfway done with the remodel but it’s livable and 1,000x better than what it was. We cleared out a lot of junk, which was probably more difficult for me than her since most of it was my childhood things I left behind, but it was incredibly necessary.

We spent our vacation working hard…

The wineries we visited on this trip included:

Belhurst CastleCastel Grisch Winery
Fox Run Vineyards
Fruit Yard Winery
Lakewood Vineyards
Miles Wine Cellars
Torrey Ridge Winery
Villa Bellangelo Winery

The foodie picture below is from a second trip out to Castel Grisch. It was our first stop of the day and had just eaten beforehand. We took a look at the menu while doing the tasting and made it a point to come back and bring my mom with us. They had an authentic German menu and it was delicious! Pictured below was the Schweinschnitzel and Spatzle. The picture just above was our view for dinner.

  1. I could never live up north, but you’ve convinced me it’s definitely worth scheduling a visit! Beautiful landscapes. I also like your new word: “instanuts”
