Finger Lakes Distilling
Finger Lakes Distilling is an NYS Farm Distillery, which means that they’re a small operation making a handcrafted product. It also means they’re able to devote all their attention to everything they make; they don’t take any shortcuts. There flavored vodkas and liqueurs are made in the traditional manner, by soaking real fruits in the spirit. They don’t add extracts or synthetic flavoring to speed up the process. There, whiskeys rest in oak barrels for as long as they need to, until they mature into the rich aged spirit they offer with pride.
Wagner Brewing Co.
Welcome to Wagner Valley Brewing Company, established in 1997. They are a small craft-brewing operation located in the Finger Lakes region of western New York. The brew system at Wagner’s is an imported 20-BBL German-style, steam fired, four-vessel brew house, specifically designed for decoction mashing. Wagner Valley Brewing Company is unique by adhering to the Reinheitsgebot of 1516, a German Purity Law that states: “Only the finest Malt, Hops, Yeast and Water can be used in the production of beer “. As you enjoy these Craft Brews you will be snacking on a bountiful cheese board made from local cheese shops from the Finger Lakes.
You will taste a variety of flavors found in Ventosa’s wines as you marvel at the view of the vineyards and Seneca Lake. The wine tasting experience at Ventosa Vineyards is second to none. Afterward enjoy a glass of wine and have an enjoyable Lunch hosted by the Cecere Family, at the Toscana Café, while overlooking the 23-acre property on the northeastern shore of Lake Seneca.
