Canandaigua Wine Trail -The Canandaigua Wine Trail (CWT) is comprised of a diverse group of wineries (large and small), breweries, restaurants, wine tasting centers and unique shops, providing visitors with a full Finger Lakes experience. The wine trail has been around since the mid 1990’s and is one of the smaller and most scenic of the Finger Lakes, making the CWT “just right” for a 1-day trip; it’s only 41 miles to travel the trail…from Fairport to Canandaigua to Naples.

glass300The Canandaigua Wine Trail is a wine trail set in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York. With world class wineries, up-and-coming breweries, restaurants, hotels, B & B’s attractions, shopping, and golf, it is the quintessential Finger Lakes experience!

Looking for an afternoon of great wine tasting? Try the Canandaigua Wine Trail Passport – $15.00 each and 100% of the proceeds go back to the Canandaigua Wine Trail, a non-profit organization. You can purchase the passports at any of the wineries.

The Passport provides complimentary tastings at each winery and also additional price discounts for the purchase of wine with the use of the passport. One passport is valid for one person, not valid for groups of more than eight.

Craft Wine Association – Arbor Hill is a Certified Craft Wine!! What is Craft Wine? In part, a Certified Craft Wine is a small-production wine made in runs of less than 5,000 cases. Wines made in production lots larger than 5,000 cases, even if a single bottling or labeling from that lot is less than 5,000 cases, do not meet the standards of Certified Craft Wine.

Case number alone does not qualify a wine as a Certified Craft Wine. The Craft Wine Association came into being to celebrate the art of the winemaker. For a wine to achieve the designation of Certified Craft Wine, the winemaker must lead production from the process of grape selection through fermentation. Small lot productions of wine under 5,000 cases that rely solely on pre-prescribed protocols of a third party do not qualify for the Certified Craft Wine designation. A custom-crush or Alternating Proprietorship facility may be leveraged in the production of Certified Craft Wines.

For a wine to achieve the designation of Certified Craft Wine, it must also be produced using grapes from an identifiable vineyard or identifiable vineyards.

Lastly, the wine must be commercially available.

Wineries who exhibit the above standards and whose entire annual production is under 5,000 cases per year also qualify for the designation of Certified Craft Winery at no additional cost. This designation is also available at no additional cost to wineries whose annual production is over 5,000 cases, but every wine they produce, without exception, is under 5,000 cases.
