Here is some more of what the media is saying about Ontario County:

  • There are days when life makes you feel as though you’ve been poured into a blender and whizzed into a froth of nervous exhaustion. As a resident of New York City, I find this happens to me with disconcerting frequency. But when it does, I have a solution: hightail it 200 miles northwest, to the Finger Lakes. A patchwork of vineyards, apple orchards, hiking trails, and small, thriving towns, this bucolic region of New York State takes its name from 11 narrow glacial lakes between the cities of Rochester and Syracuse that run north to south, like the fingers of an extremely unusual hand.” – Ray Isle, Food & Wine
  • Carolyn Steere, from Destination I Do, said, “One of the more noted wedding venues in the region is Belhurst Castle and Winery, which was voted number three in USA TODAY’S 10 Best Wine Country Hotels in 2018. Located on the shores of beautiful Seneca Lake, the large lawn is a favorite ceremony location, followed by a castle reception fit for a prince or princess. With three hotels, two restaurants, a winery, spa and salon, you can create the wedding of your dreams all in one place.”
  • Howard Blount of Backroad Planet described his taste of grape pie at Arbor Hill as “Heaven” and his lunch at New York Kitchen’s The Restaurant “Divine.”
