Vizcarra Vineyards at Becker Farms

Reviewed By GJM83 - Buffalo, New York

Avoid it if it is on weekend during September or October if you don't want to deal with masses of crowds, parking in bumpy pasture, difficult to find tasting room and not enough staff to handle the crowds for good limited wines.

Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride

Reviewed By SnowyShasta - Portland, Oregon

We stopped in Lockport to get a better sense of the Erie Canal and its history. While there, we heard about this cave and boat ride, so gave them a try as well. The Lockport Cave is a manmade tunnel, roughly paralleling the canal, that was used to divert water to power manufacturing and mill equipment. It is no longer used and instead is a tourist attraction. We first walked down past the original Lockport locks on the canal, with our guide giving us historical information. Then we entered the cave itself. We walked through most of it (it's very large and lighted, even my nervous about the dark child was fine with it), and at the end there is a boat ride. The boat ride was a bit of an anti-climax for my teens since the ride is slow and dark. You go about 10 minutes down into the cave and then return to your starting point. Overall we found the tour interesting, but somewhat expensive for what it was. It lasted a bit over an hour.

Medina Railroad Museum

Reviewed By Viaggio133 - Marilla, New York

Incredible would be the word that I would use to describe this museum. There are an abundance of railroad memorabilia from watches, signs scales, punches, conductor hats, photographs and of course a variety of electric train sets.

The main exhibit is a huge train layout in the center of the exhibit room which is the envy of any man or boy that ever owned a train set.

All in all, a walk through of this museum is an educational tour during a period when railroads ruled the transportation and economic center of America.

Royalton Ravine Park

Reviewed By Larry W - Rochester, New York

I visited this park quite by accident this week, as I was in the area for a meeting and got there 30 minutes early. This park is all about the outdoors, and features a lot of wide-open grassy areas, which compliment ball fields and a few outdoor pavilions which can be rented for large picnics and other events. The pond that sits back from the road is fairly small, but does contain fish and is used by the local folks for recreation purposes.

There are better parks across the region, but this is a local place that does deserve mention for its proximity to the town's residents. It is pretty and easy to access...a nice place to visit.

810 Meadworks

Don't let other dissapointing meads determine your opinion of all meads come in and try out unique and flavorful creations.

Reviewed By kwnike13 - Grand Island, New York

I believe this is the only meadery in WNY, or one of a very few and it is part of the Niagara Wine Trail. This is a good place to visit when you are in Medina or if you are just looking to taste some mead if you have never had it before. All of the samples I had were good, but not spectacular. If you like bloody mary's, then this is the place for you! The have an amazing bloody mary made with ghost peppers so it is very hot. Be warned that it really is hot but soo delicious! They also have other cocktails on their menu if you want to try something different.

The Erie Canal Discovery Center

Reviewed By 38Y - Lockport, New York

The Discovery Center is a wonderful place to learn about the history of Lockport and the Erie Canal. But you must also see the live demo of the restored historic locks which are operated by volunteers in the manner of locks operators in the 1860s. Demonstrations run every Saturday Memorial Day through the end of September.
After you watch a demonstration, you can visit the Flight of Five winery or Lake Effect Ice Cream for more local flavor!

Don't let the trail map fool you...only 7 miles from Becker farms. Some of the best wines on the Niagara wine trail. Curtious and fun servers behind the bar. Very experienced wine maker too! They are open until 6 p.m. every day...don't believe the 4 o'clock closing.

Upside Down Railroad Bridge

Reviewed By Prawet J - Washington DC, District of Columbia

The Upside Down Railroad Bridge is located near the Erie Canal locks. It was built for trains to go over the Erie Canal. For layman not architecture, it is a nice interesting design. The tale tell information also adds to trivia knowledge for visitors. If you visit the Erie Canal Museum, it is right there with a few minute walk you will be under it.

Flight of Five Winery

Reviewed By Larry W - Rochester, New York

I had never been at this winery when it was open, but had the good fortune of stumbling upon it (not literally!) this past weekend. It is a charming little place inside, with a wonderful sampling bar and very historic room. The ceiling is one of those old-style pressed-tin surfaces, and lots of historic artifacts surround the room.

The wines produced by this place are superb, and span the gamut from Chardonnays to Pinot Noir. I didn't sample much, but did find a nice fruity white that I decided to take away with me. The staff was very knowledgeable about their products, and was just nice in general. I highly recommend this place to anyone.

Arrowhead Spring Vineyards is a "Wine Lover's Winery". Our winery focuses on traditionally made, dry wines that are barrel aged 1-2 years. We grow Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. We also offer Icewine, Riesling and Pinot Noir from area vineyards.

Bus and Limousine Groups Please Note: We require all bus and limousine groups to make a reservation by calling the winery a week in advance. We will not accept any group that is drinking on their bus or limousine. Please respect this policy - there are plenty of wineries that specialize in accommodating party groups -- we are just not one of them.

Quaint tasting room with a slightly subdued atmosphere. This was by far the most cerebral experience of the day along the wine trail. Nice Syrah.
