Wine Vault Room at the Finger Lakes Boating Museum

As we looked around the huge multi-floor Finger Lakes Boating Museum in Hammondsport, New York on Keuka Lake, we came across another great holdover room. The building used for the museum used to be the Taylor Wine factory and specifically the wine tasting rooms and storage barrels for wine.  We went through a small door and down a stairs and found these huge wooden coopered barrels that were formerly used by the winery. They were beautiful and I am not sure if they were full or empty, but they had a distinctive wine smell. The stone ceilings of these rooms too were vaulted and curved with a matching door. Each keg held 1900 gallons.
