Wellsboro Shopping- For a small, quaint village, Wellsboro has a surprising array of nice shops, restaurants and places to meet and greet the locals. There are also two very nice markets for food shopping, and excellent hospital should the need arise. There are very few "chain" eateries, and most of the gastronomic offerings are from "mom and pop" eateries that have been in Wellsboro for decades.
Finger Lakes Wineries- Finger Lakes Wine Country, New York is home to more than 100 wineries, breweries and distilleries centered around Keuka, Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. In addition, many of the beverage producers are also members of their repesctive wine and beer trails which host year-round wine and food weekend events. The Finger Lakes is a wrold-class wine producing region that specializes in aromatic white varieties like Riesling and Gewurtzraminer. The region is also finding exciting success with cool-climate reds like Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir. The terroir of the Finger Lakes is special because of the microclimate created by the lakes- extreme cold weather in the winter is avoided and warm, breezy days during the summer help ripen the grapes.
