Tour the Finger Lakes with Donal Smith

Many of you may remember Donal Smith, the former Corti Brothers wine merchant who was also so affable when recommending the best bottle to go with dinner or purchase as a gift. Smith retired from Corti Brothers last year, and now works as a wine consultant and hosts food and wine trips. Such is the case with an upcoming tour of New York's Finger Lakes wine region, which is the nation's second largest wine growing wine region.The cool climate helps produce some exceptional rieslings and the area is becoming an increasingly popular destination for wine tourists looking for a taste of something new.

Smith's tour of the Finger Lakes runs from Sept. 18 - 25, and includes a whole lot of tasting and eating. The itinerary features an excursion to the New York Wine & Culinary Center in Canandaigua, a jaunt to Niagra Falls and a tour of Seneca Falls.
