The next stop on your gourmet food tour is the Finger Lakes, a region defined by wine making almost as much as by the elegant bodies of water which give it its name. Each year, a growing number of visitors flock to the region to sample the award winning local produce, which includes ice wines – made from grapes harvested in the winter, making the best of New York’s harsh cold season. You’ll stay at Geneva on the Lake, a converted mansion rich in old world charm and ideally positioned for local cheese and wine trails or sailing on Seneca Lake. Nearby Seneca Harbor is renowned for its incredible fresh seafood, while you can get a feel for the history of Finger Lakes with a tour of the 19th century Rose Hill Mansion.

You’ll spend 3 nights at the Mirror Lake Inn, a luxurious resort and spa ideally placed for exploring the nearby farmers’ markets or fly fishing and kayaking on the lake.
