Another Day in the Finger Lakes

July 9, 2019

.

Mummy and Daddy are really enjoying the wineries in the Finger Lakes… now we know why we came here!!! We have focused our stops around Keuka Lake and I have to admit that it sure is beautiful up here. There are lots of summer homes bordering the beautiful lake and Daddy said he would love to have a house up here but Mummy said it’s just too far from home so we are just admiring them for now. We visited two more PET FRIENDLY wineries today and met the nicest people while we were there. One couple we met has a rescue doggie with his own INSTAGRAM page. He was rescued only HOURS before he was due to be “put down” at a kill shelter and is now living a GREAT LIFE with his wonderful parents. If you are on INSTAGRAM, how about popping over and following him? His name is: “Harlietherescuepup” and I’m sure he would love to have lots of new doggie friends! Just tell him that MILLIE sent you!!!  Now, let me tell you about the nifty dog-loving wineries we went to… make sure to stop by if you are in the area and help support them!

.

1. Heron Hill Winery – they have been in winemaking and practicing sustainable viticulture in the Finger Lakes area since 1977. Here you can sample wine in one of the most spectacular tasting rooms in the world, named by Travel + Leisure. They have a special wine called “Friends of the Equicenter” and part of every bottle sold goes to help horses and also doggies who assist with people in the military who suffer with PTSD. Of COURSE Mummy ordered some of THAT! They also have a cafe where you can enjoy a nice lunch but sadly it was not open today so we missed out on that! DRATS!

.

2. Hunt Country Vineyards – this family has been farming in the Keuka Lake area for seven generations!!! WOW!!! They started making wine in 1981 and have committed themselves to responsible farming. They installed award-winning solar and geothermal systems, improved soil health through large-scale composting and they increase the habitat for bees, birds and other wildlife around their vineyards. Hunt Country Vineyards is the oldest continuous producer of genuine ICE WINE in the United States. They also have a small cafe but it was closed today.

.

Soooo… there you have it! We had a pretty busy day just touring around, looking at the countryside and enjoying the nice weather. We are back at the AIRSTREAM now and have eaten our dinner and are taking a little snooze on the sofa. The windows are open and a nice breeze is blowing in and I have to say that all in all, things are pretty good right now. Mummy just asked Daddy if he wants to open up a bottle of their new wine and find a movie to watch on TV. YES… a movie sounds nice. ??

What a wonderful day you have had! The weather here in PA has cooled a bit – upper 80s during the day, storms have passed til Thursday. I’m so glad you have found many pet-friendly places in New York. May the rest of your journey North continue to have pet-friendly locals. Enjoy, stay safe, and most of all HAVE FUN, FUN, FUN.

Love, Betsy & Mia Rose

Thanks for the information on the Hunt Country Vineyards Ice Wine. We haven’t had Ice Wine since we were in the Canadian Rockies quite a few years back. Can they ship in the Country….(we’re in Florida). Definitely going to check them out. Loving traveling with your Family.

Sounds like you are having tons of fun! The Finger Lakes area is so pretty and lots to do. Not too far from us either. We could even do a day trip, as long as we had a DD for the wineries. Lol ?.

Hi Ladies! Lucy, Maggie and I are having a lot of fun following your adventures! Ice Wine sounds VERY intriguing and I’ll be waiting for your review! It’s nice to see so many dog-friendly wineries and ones that donate to such special causes. All of your posts are so interesting!

GLAD TO LEARN THERE IS A WINERY THAT DONATES PART OF THEIR SALES TO SAVE ANIMALS. IF WE TURTLES ARE ABANDONED, WE CAN TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES UNLIKE MOST DOMESTICATED ANIMALS. WE HAVE SURVIVED FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS WITHOUT HAVING TO CHANGE…WE EVEN HAVE SURVIVED ATOMIC BOMB TESTINGS. LOVE YOUR POSTINGS.

I’m Pennsylvania Dutch myself. You’re in my neck of the woods. I love it there but can’t take their winter’s. Maybe one day we’ll make a trip North but during the summer. I’m a Florida girl all the way. ? All of wineries are worth going to. Have fun y’all. Hugs and chi kisses. ??❤️

I’ve been to Heron Hill Winery and just loved it. The food at the cafe is very nice and doggies love to sit outside and chill with their pawrents. I find ice wine very sweet. It was interesting to try though. Your mummy might love it. There is a lady who makes grape pies in her home somewhere around Keuka Lake. It was so so yummy! She might just make them in the Fall though, since I was there last it was in the Fall. I know doggies can’t eat grapes, sweet Millie but your mummy might love those pies.… Read more »

Yes, the Ice Wine is very sweet and they said it is a sipping dessert wine or you use it to drizzle over ice cream or dessert pastries so that is how we will try it when we get back home and have friends over for dinner. Darn… we didn’t see any grape pie!!! I bet that was good!!!
