“Seneca County: The Center of the Finger Lakes” is a short video that showcases the natural beauty and rich history of Seneca County. In the video, viewers are exposed to the agricultural world of wineries, breweries, and distilleries that flourish in the Finger Lakes region. The wineries of the area are regionally, nationally, and internationally acclaimed in their wine production, where they compete in competitions worldwide. Other features of Seneca County are the outdoor activities that happen all year round. Visitors can explore and play throughout all four seasons, from skiing to fishing.
