Here's a map and some recommended wineries from around Seneca Lake.
A Taste of
Lacey Magruder Winery
This winery is like stopping at a relative's house for a glass of wine. It's a small husband and wife operation, but their wines bigger than the refurbished barn they turned into a tasting room.
A modest looking refurbished barn. Don't be fooled, though! This place has more ribbons, trophies and awards than you can shake a cork at.
Fox Run Vineyards
A personal favorite of Big D, the grounds of Fox Run are lush and extravagant. It sports a lovely cafe and a quaint gift shop.
Hermann J. Weimer
The professional demeanor of the Germans is prominent at Weimer, and their hospitality is unmatched. Large glass windows show off their wine-making process.
Home to the oldest vineyard in Yates County, the Villa is also home to one of the best views of Seneca Lake. Don't be surprised if your guide wanders off to enjoy the view while you look around Villa Belangelo.
This winery's personality matches the wine they serve: Playful, outgoing, and just enough avant-garde to keep things interesting.
One of the crown jewels of Seneca Lake, Belhurst Castle has beautiful grounds, charming staff members and a colorful history.
We've taken the liberty of listing a few wineries available for our tours. There are so many more fantastic wineries to visit, so we would be more than happy to work with you to create the perfect tour that has a splash of all your favorite varietals.

A Taste of
Like a little sliver of Tuscany, Ventosa brings to the mind the distinct architecture and wine styles of the Italian countryside. Big D highly recommends their mousse.
This gorgeous, modern winery boasts lovely wooden architecture, an on-site vineyard, and cold-climate grapes that speak for themselves. Their hillside view is second to none.
Wagner is the largest vineyard in the region, coming in at a whopping 238 acres. This massive winery is also home to some award-winning Rieslings, and their on-site brewery makes nothing but masterpieces.
Three Brothers Winery
There's a lot going on at Three Brothers! Between their trifecta of wineries, a brewery, and a cafe, there's a little something for everybody here.
Lafayette has a little something for everyone, from rieslings to whites, reds to sweets, and everything in between. Their unique location gives their grapes plenty of extra sunlight.
A beautiful selection of dry red wines, almost reminiscent of Italian Wines. But don't just drink the reds; Damiani has plenty more wines to choose from!
Standing Stone Vineyards
Standing Stone offers a unique taste to classic wines, as well as a few you may have never heard of!
A modest winery that always puts quality first, Boundary Breaks is sure to entice the palate with their regality and attention to detail.
