“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

Sonnenberg is tucked away in the middle of this mid-state small city, which is unique in itself. In finding Sonnenberg you get a wonderful tour of lovely turn of the century homes; Victorians, Georgians, Italinates, you name it they've got beautiful examples all over this city. Sonnenberg is the castle in the middle surrounded by lovely gardens all tended by volunteers. Be sure to find the Rock Gardens. They're incredible! The house is beautiful and sedate. Very interesting history here. There is also a wine cellar and tasting room on the grounds with lots of great Finger Lakes wines to choose from.
