California wines are great, but people overlook the great places we have here on the East Coast to do tasting. Finger Lakes is just the beginning (and my personal fav because it's close to home).

Can we get the other East Coasters to chime in and let everyone know that you don't have to go out west to find good wine!?

An East Coast "great find" is the Johnson Estate Winery. It is the oldest of New York wineries. I don't know of anyone who has walked away with less than a 5 Star experience!

I've hear of that, but I've actually never been. Thanks Sierra -- I need to check it out!

Oeno, Let me know, should you get the opportunity to visit the Johnson Estate. I know the area like the back of my hand, and could give you some added "what to see" tips to make your holiday extra special.

We're excited! Tomorrow's destination is Disney World/ the Epcot Center. The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is being held through November 9th. I've heard some really great things about it. Fellow Corktraders, have any of you participated in this event? I'd appreciate some added input. Thanks!

Bob, I have attended the Epcot event as a fluke. It was a good time for less than $100 dollars. If you are still there be sure to check out the concert series lineups. I remember them pulling some entertaining Grammy entertainers. The Epcot admission covered just about everything. Look for the beer and wine seminars for some free tastings. Good luck, have Fun!

Does anyone know of some awesome things to do on the east coast during Christmas and New Years? I have a couple of days to sight see while traveling from one relative's in Florida to another in the Carolinas. I'd appreciate any suggestions!

Trent - how did you holiday go on the east coast? Any good opportunities for tasting wine, etc., that you would like to share?
