I am planning a weekend trip this summer to upstate New York and would like to include some vineyard touring if there are any good ones in the area. Do you have any vineyards you would recommend within 1 or 2 hours of Saratoga Springs? We could potentially get to the Finger Lakes area, too.
Saratoga is pretty far away from the finger lakes, and there isn’t that much around you. There are some local breweries. You are close to Vermont, and Long Trail Brewery is not far away (Limbo IPA and Double Bag are great beers). Nearby, there is Druthers Brewing, which is a fun joint.
Philip’s gave you a good list of wineries, if you end up travelling to the Finger lakes. That is about 3 hours away, though.
