Heron Hill..... Another of the prestigious wineries along the Finger Lakes touring route.
This place I found to be more "commercial" than let's say, the Bully Hill winery. They seemed to cater to more structured events and prescheduled groups. We tend to be more in-the-moment tourists who do not generally take the group tours.

The day we were there, there was a large group (20-30 people) already engaged in a tour, so we just skimmed along behind them and listened to what their tour guide was saying. The establishment has a fairly large gift shop offering more than just wines and wine products; there were hand-crafted momentos, logoed- teeshirts, and the ubiquitous bottle openers and glass-mats. A small restaurant offered luncheon food (soups and sandwiches) which was good for soaking up some of the wine we had tasted during the tour.

The tour was good but we preferred the atmosphere at the Bully Hill place.

Like all the places along the Finger Lakes wine tours, the scenery is great. Be sure to have a camera. Sunsets are especially fine.

Address: 9301 route 76
Directions: I-86 (route 17) to Bath Exit, north on route 54 in Bath, north to route 54A thru HammondsPort, north to the Y in the road where you connect to route 76.
drive north on route 76 until you think you have gone too far then drive just a little farther.....
