The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Tour Our Backyard Wine Country


4. Insider’s Tip

Hike through the vineyard and then right into tasting room at Red Newt Cellars.  

In spring, the still-silent trails (16,212 acres worth) in the Finger Lakes National Forest could not seem more remote from the dense population of wineries that rim the lake. But they lead niftily downhill—past Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, Red Newt Cellars, Tickle Hill Winery, and Leidenfrost Vineyards. Wineries welcome hikers emerging from these trails into their vineyards, and to their tasting-room doors.
