The fi rst winery in the Finger Lakes, The Hammondsport and Pleasant Valley Wine Company, was founded.

The region became famous for its sparkling wines, with the Pleasant Valley Wine Company winning European awards

For the fi rst time the Northeast-ern United States could produce European varieties of wines, thanks to Dr. Konstantin Frank, a European immigrant who believed that the lack of proper rootstock, not the cold climate, was the reason for the failure of Vitis Vinifera vines in the Finger Lakes region

For over 20 years, Goose Watch has produced distinctive premium wines with a concentration on off the beaten

path varietals and styles not found at most other Finger Lakes wineries. Hard to find European varietals such as Viognier and Lemberger can be sampled along with more traditional wines like Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Or try wines from historic local varieties such as Diamond and Isabella, or some of the newer Cornell developed varietals (Traminette, Melody,

Aromella and Noiret). Sparkling wines, premium hard ciders, White Port, Sherry and Ice Wine are also offered. Our winemakers were honored with the “Winemakers of the Year” at the 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition, the largest wine competition held in California. The setting is as memorable as the wines, with some of the best views on the lake, which can be enjoyed from our tasting room or large deck. Feel free to visit us by car, bus, or boat!

So you and your friends or family have decided to go on a wine tour. Here’s a quick little guide to help you through the next steps!

for a group of 10 or more

Determine your pick-up and drop-off spot where

everyone can leave their cars and can relax and

have a snack afterwards before venturing home.

There’s no bad time to go wine tasting, but fair

warning, Saturdays in September and October are

the busiest days of the year. You will get a more

personalized experience if you go on a weekday or during colder


Transportation cost will vary depending on your group

size and the duration of the reservation (in hours).

Tasting fees vary from $4–$10, depending on group size.

Be sure to set some cash aside for wine and souvenir purchases!

For groups of 10+, reservations must be made by

contacting each individual winery. Plan an hour or

so in between each stop to allow time to taste, shop,

take pics, potty breaks and travel time. Visit winery

websites and Facebook pages to pick which you’d like to visit.

Refer to page 21 for reservation information.

Once you have an idea of how many people you’re

traveling with, contact transportation companies

(page 15) for rates. The sooner you call, the more

likely you are to fi nd the right size vehicle on your preferred

date for a good price. Picking a transportation company located

nearest your pick-up location may save on cost.

Nobody wants to travel with HANGRY friends. Many

of the wineries do carry snack items, but there are

restaurants along the Trail. Americana Vineyards,

Toro Run Winery, Knapp Winery, Thirsty Owl Wine Co and Cayuga

Ridge Estate Winery all have restaurants on site. To expedite your

time, make a reservation for your lunch, as well. Check the Mobile

App for seasonal hours!
