Belhurst among ‘world’s best wine hotels’

Another publication, another honor for the Finger Lakes wine region.

This time it’s the most recent edition of Wine Enthusiast magazine, where — in an articled titled “The World’s Best Wine Hotels” — Belhurst Castle and Winery has made the list.

“To receive recognition as one of the world’s best wine hotels and the only one in the U.S. by Wine Enthusiast is a great honor,” said Belhurst owner Duane Reeder. “This recognition of Belhurst brings even more recognition to the Finger Lakes region.”

In the article, written by Lynn Freehill-Maye, the Belhurst joins hotels such as The Vines Resort & Spa in Mendoza, Argentina, Hotel Marques de Riscal in Rioja, Spain, and The Yeatman in Porto, Portugal.

“Even the East Coast of the United States can offer top-quality wine travel, like New York’s Finger Lakes region. The area’s rolling, pastoral countryside, cleaved by nearly a dozen long glacial lakes, has long been known for Riesling, but lately has received acclaim in other varieties,” Freehill-Maye wrote, adding of the Belhurst, “The estate is located in an emerging farm-to-table foodie destination, the town of Geneva. The castle’s fun perks include monthly pairing dinners and a ‘wine spigot’ in the hallways — a communal, free-flowing tap where guests can pour themselves complimentary red wine during their stay.”
