Culinary, Wine & Beer

Taste, Sip & Enjoy the Region

Our farm-to-table tradition goes back more than 2,000 years - with the great agricultural mastership of the Haudenosaunee.

We're rich with farms and blessed with pure waters, a tradition of inventive chefs, and a history of turning hops and wheat into distinctive ales, beers, and lagers. We have a way with distilled spirits, too. There are festivals for ribs, BBQ, cherries, strawberries, lavender, peppermint, cheeses, garlic, tomatoes, and (even) sauerkraut.

With 100+ wineries and five distinctive wine trails, The region is known as "The Napa Valley of the East." The signature wines of the region have gained international acclaim and awards. A great region is about diversity, access, hotels, restaurants, and where to go. You'll find it all here.
