Experience! The Finger Lakes®, based out of Ithaca NY, in the heart of the Finger Lakes region, today announced that it has been recognized as the 4th Best Wine Tour in the United States.
Nominees for the USA TODAY 10Best award for Best Wine Tour were chosen by a panel of wine and travel experts consisting of journalists, industry professionals, and broadcast personalities. Twenty nominees from around the country were presented to the public in July. Online public voting took place over 4 weeks, and winners were announced publicly on August 13st on https://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-wine-tour/.
Experience! The Finger Lakes, owned by husband-and-wife team Alan Falk and Laura Winter Falk, has been offering premium-touring experiences throughout the Finger Lakes region since 2007.
“Experience! The Finger Lakes® is humbled to be recognized by USA Today’s 10Best award for the second year in a row.” said Laura Winter Falk, President at Experience! The Finger Lakes. “The combination of being selected by industry and media experts as a nominee, and then getting chosen by the voting public as the 4th best wine tour in the country makes this particularly special for us. Since our beginning, our mission has always been to vet the best that our region has to offer and develop unique and premium-quality experiences that help our guests get to know the people behind the products. It is very meaningful to us that both industry professionals and our customers feel we are delivering on that goal.“
“Improving on our top 10 ranking from last year makes it even more significant”, Winter Falk adds. “Our fan-base and community have been so supportive! This past year was of course, particularly challenging, but we continued to be committed to offering a premium-level experience with safety always being our first priority. Our guests have been very vocal of their appreciation of these efforts. As a result, more and more people are discovering us, our stunning region, and quality wines we are producing. We look forward to this award bringing even more visitors to Ithaca and upstate New York and experiencing all our wonderful area has to offer.”
