its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Finger Lakes Wineries & Breweries (Part II)

“Take your pleasure seriously." —Charles Eames

Three Brothers Wineries has 3 wineries (Stony Lonesome Wine Cellars, Passion Feet Wine Barn & Bagg Dare Wine Co.) and a microbrewery (War Horse Brewing Co.) all on site. Each with a uniquely themed tasting room. They have an expansive selection of hand-crafted wine, microbrews, hard cider and sodas…so there's something for everyone who visits.
War Horse Brewing Company brews hard cider, custom ales, lagers, seasonal beers and house-made sodas. The decor of this tasting room honors those who've served and fought for our freedom. We felt like we were on the set of MASH.
Goose Watch Winery began production in 1997. It sits on a hill overlooking Cayuga Lake, with a tasting room in a beautifully restored century old barn surrounded by vineyards, nut trees, gardens and breathtaking views. We enjoyed the winery, but unfortunately the view wasn’t as pretty as it could have been…since the weather was a little dreary the day we were there.  
We bought a bottle of 2016 Rosé of Pinot Noir, we enjoyed a glass at the winery and took the rest home. The wine is described as having notes of strawberry, cherry, honeysuckle & vanilla aromas. With flavors that expand on the palate to tangerine and lime, balanced nicely by a vein of minerality and a bright acidity...who writes this stuff? The wine was very good, but I had a hard time making out all those flavors.
Treleaven Wines - The winery began in 1984 when the family grain farm was converted into a vineyard. They promote themselves as your backyard. It's the perfect place to enjoy the summer sun, a bottle of your favorite wine and a picnic while listening to live music and taking in the beautiful grounds of the vineyard. They offer live music 2-3 nights a week. We enjoyed the vineyards Silver Lining Chardonnay, it was crisp and refreshing with notes of melon and citrus. 
I saw this sign at one of the wineries we visited...thought it was pretty cute.
