Went on a wine tasting tour last week. If you live anywhere near the Finger Lakes (or any cluster of wineries), I strongly suggest it. I learned alot about what I like and what I don't like.

Basically, I really like sweet wines - the more sugar, the better. I know, SHOCKING! Hunt Country was my favorite vinyard, not just for the wines (of which, the Vignoles and the Ice Wine were dee-lish), but also the tour, the friendly people, and especially, for Gus, their Bernese Mountain Dog. He looked at me with heartwarming eyes that seemed to say, "I've been waiting for you my who-o-ole life". I'm madly in love with him (in a Paris-Tinkerbell way, not a Paris-guy-with-a-pulse way).

Casa Larga (near Eastview Mall) has an incredible ice wine right now. While you can taste up to 5 wines for free, the ice wine tasting is $2, but TOTALLY worth it. Unfortunately, an actual bottle will set you back upwards of $20 (I think it was closer to $30). Now you need to make a day trip to Niagara-On-The-Lake where the ice wines are SUPERB and excellently priced. Just beware that border crossing is a biatch right now due to labor disputes.

Another day trip for you to make is the Lake Erie Wine Trail.
