Have been to Finger Lakes 3 times now. and every time has gone around winter time. Its beautiful at that time and also not as crowded. They have great wineries with various types of wine and great atmosphere. When visiting there, I would recommend staying at B&B, its fun to meet the locals and also great accomodations
