Buttonwood Grove Winery

Finger Lakes

As well as a decent range of whites and a smattering of reds, this winery, 15 miles south of Seneca Falls, also makes blackberry wines and hard ciders.

On the estate you can also stay in one of four comfortably furnished log cabins ($153 to $199), all with lake views. Slightly rustic and remote – you can see the stars at night.
