Slanted Slopes

Keuka: The literal indigenous meaning is “Lake with an elbow”. It is the most unusually shaped of all the Finger Lakes and one of the shallowest. Because of its shallow depths, Keuka has one of the warmest water temperatures ideal for moderating the environment to grow premium grapes. We will begin with breathtaking views of the Lake, and visits to THREE of the wineries surrounding Keuka Lake. We will choose based on availability what wineries we visit. We will take your recommendations of which wineries to visit but cannot guarantee them.  Door-to-door service from area accommodations or departure from the Finger Lakes Casino and Racetrack is at 10:00 a.m.  ** Pickup times may change depending on your pickup location. Please refer to email communication from Crush Beer and Wine Tours for specific pickup information.**
