We take a drive out this way a few times a year, sometimes with out of towners from Buffalo,NY to show them, what we have. the wine connoisseurs are always amazed , and go home with a few bottles of wine.
well heres a little History about one of our favorite spots to go for lunch
Hammondsport; New York is the wine “Wine Capital.” Home to several popular wineries (including Bully Hill and Pleasant Valley), the village still manages to stay small and quiet. A quaint town square features shops and cafes that attract passers by, and a small park at the southern tip of the lake is a worth stop for its excellent view. Hammondsport is also known as the “cradle of aviation.” Village native Glenn Curtiss, who manufactured high-performance motorcycles, became the first person to fly an aircraft over 1 km. Curtiss did this in Hammondsport in a craft he designed called “June Bug.” Curtiss went on to design, build and fly the first sea planes, many of which were tested on Keuka Lake at Hammondsport
