Now wineries in the Finger Lakes Region have gotten together to do something about it. More than half of the 95 wineries in New York state's Finger Lakes region are participating in a program to issue "yellow-card warnings" to out-of-control tour groups. For repeated bad behavior the Safe Wine Tours Group will issue red cards and get booted off the region's three wine tour "trails." The program is designed to encourage tour operators to police their customers and hopefully curb some of the fraternity party atmosphere that can invade a winery when a bunch of unruly tourists pull up. Now when will Napa get a system like this?
