As you approach it, Castel Grisch Winery & Restaurant looks like nothing so much as a quaint farm. Get closer, though, and you'll start to notice hints of the winery within. There's the pyramid of dark wood wine barrels out front, for instance, or the wine-colored carpet in the dining room. That same room has the biggest clue of all: the menu, featuring wines from the Chancellor, a fruity red, to a Riesling fermented in stainless steel.

Castel Grisch's wine doesn't just come in bottles and the glasses—it crops up on the food menu, too, flavoring one of the cheese fondues. And when the chefs aren't melting cheese, they're whipping up hearty sandwiches stuffed with roast beef, Cajun-spiced turkey, or a bratwurst simmered in brown beer. Guests eat these hearty meals in a dining room brightened by white tablecloths or, when the weather's warm and the grapes are warbling, on a back patio overlooking the fields.

With a plethora of beer varieties populating its three locations, Beers of the World equips brew-loving beerheads with a bevy of bottles. In addition to marketing microbrews in cases (starting at $19.99), 12 packs (starting at $10.99), and six packs (starting at $6.95), Beers of the World encourages imbibers to purchase bottles individually (starting at $1.35), and thereby groove on a greater variety of fermented fizzies. Evaluate imported brews, such as the Hofbrauhaus Wolters German Pilsener ($19.99/case), against Mendocino Black Hawk Stout ($24.79/case), Genesee Cream Ale ($14.49/30-pack), and other American standouts in an awkward thumb-war. As brew buffs for more than two decades, Beers of the World grants expert advice to more-amateur enthusiasts, and information about beer can be found online.

On warm days, Brando's Pizza & Ice Cream Stand attracts visitors with ice cream, soft serve, and other frosty treats. Visitors can sit outdoors to savor the sweets or walk to nearby Como Lake Park. Although the spot is popular in the summertime, patrons visit Brando's year-round for pasta dishes, subs, and Buffalo-style pizzas with toppings such as sirloin tip steak or chicken tenders.

Amaretto Bistro produces a menu of Italian-centric dishes that feature rich and simple ingredients. Housemade venison link sausage and mussels seasoned with white wine and butter serve as preludes to Amaretto's entrees, which include fresh pastas, seafood, and steak such as the bone-in rib eye with radish-chive compound butter. For lighter fare, the kitchen churns out goat-cheese salad tossed with green-apple and raspberry-chianti vinaigrette.

At The Winery at Marjim Manor, proprietor Margo Sue Bittner and her family craft quality wines from the bountiful harvests of western New York's Fruit Belt. Grape gurus can choose from a liquid litany of reds, such as the stately, dry Lord of the Manor ($10.95/750 mL, $6.49/375 mL), a choice selection of whites, such as a crisp and clear Lady in the Window ($14.95), or from an assortment of blushy hybrids of whites and reds. The Winery's dulcet fruit wines, including the apricot Heart of Gold ($23.95/750mL) or Cranberry Crescendo ($13.95/750 mL, $7.49/375 mL), satisfy sweet teeth with complex flavors in a package more exotic than grape wine and more mature than Capri Sun.
