Oct 27th, 2016

TripAdvisor, the travel planning and booking site, has more than 350 million unique monthly visitors, and over 385 million reviews and opinions covering more than 6.6 million accommodations, restaurants and attractions.

                     TripAdvisor recently unveiled the top rated wine tours in the U.S. and throughout the world, according to the millions of reviews and opinions from travelers. 

                     Experience! The Finger Lakes, based out of Ithaca, New York, has been recognized as one of the Top 10 Wine Tours in the United States.  Experience! The Finger offers immersive wine experiences that get you up-close-and-personal with some of the best wineries in the region.  On either its half-day or full-day tours, guests receive opportunities like vineyard and cellar tours with winery owners and barrel sampling.  All tours also feature select food-wine pairings that show off locally sourced artisanal cheeses, chocolates and charcuteries.  Full day tours feature lunches focused on the bounty of the Finger Lakes.

Experience! The Finger Lakes, owned by Alan and Laura Winter Falk celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2017.  Laura who designs all the tours, is a certified sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers.  In addition to its wine tours, the company does culinary events such as Sommelier-led wine dinners with regional chefs and wine pairing presentations and receptions.  They also work with corporate, conference and charter groups to develop custom itineraries for experiencing the region.  Reservations on wine tours are also often limited so booking in advance is advised to make sure you don’t miss out.
