Bully Hill Vineyard is a Must See

I usually enjoy spending my birthday just relaxing at home with my family and eating my favorite meal.  This year my sister-in-law surprised me by inviting me along on a girls only road trip to Bully Hill Vineyard. Her mother and I share a birthday so it was a perfect gift for us both.  I have never been to a vineyard but have always wanted to go.  The road trip there and back was filled with laughter, pics, and lots of singing to the radio. We decided to eat lunch first and then walk around and experience what Bully Hill had to offer.  The restaurant is overlooking Keuka Lake and the view was breathtaking.

The food was the very best part.  We all tried to order something different but my sister-in-law and I couldn't decide what to order so we each got something different and shared. Then of course we ordered wine!  

They let us sample the kind of wine we wanted before deciding. Clearly we liked Red and White both. I can't remember what the white wine was but the red was Sweet Walter Rose and if you love a sweet wine then this is for you.
This is the Soft Shell Crab Sandwich. It is fantastic as long as you can get past the legs dangling from the bun. The fries are covered in garlic, parmesan, salt, and pepper.
This is the Portabella Crab Cake. This is by far the tastiest hing I have eaten in forever. It was topped with scallops. So yummy!

Needless to say, after the wine and food, we did not actually go on the  minute walking tour. We opted to go through the gift shop where I purchased my very own Bully Hill wineglass and coaster.  We did tour the Walter S. Taylor Art Gallery.  This is filled with stories from the early beginnings of the vineyard to the original paintings by the founder himself. Our last stop was in the tasting room where we all purchased several bottles to take home.  I had the best day and left feeling relaxed and stuffed. I will be returning in the very near future and may just tour some of the other vineyards through out the finger lakes region.
