The Seneca Lake Wine Trail has been named a Trip Advisor 2020 Travelers’ Choice Winner.
The recognition comes from consistently positive user reviews, according to Trip Advisor.
According to a release, the awards take into account the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings specific to each award category.
Seneca Lake Wine Trail Executive Director Brittany Gibson told WENY that despite the pandemic, the trail has worked hard to stay ready for customers.
“This award was given to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, but it truly belongs to our 30 member wineries,” Gibson said. “The wineries have responded exceptionally to each and every challenge placed in their path by the COVID-19 pandemic. To meet reopening requirements, wineries have invested substantially in tents, patio furniture, umbrellas, additional staff, training (and retraining) staff to meet guidelines and deploy required sanitation efforts. Despite the major changes brought on by the pandemic, visitors have discovered that this new way of doing things is, in many ways, better than ever. The high marks wineries continue to earn from visitors since reopening is proof positive of these efforts.”
