Fall 2022 Cider, Wine, and Lunch on Cayuga

Quick Details

Your Cayuga Cider, Wine, and Lunch Tour Itinerary

Taste the best that Cayuga has to offer with this tour, which includes visits to two wineries and a cider house, a gourmet lunch, and gorgeous lake views.

The first stop is Finger Lakes Cider House, located on Good Life Farm, a 69-acre ecological farm owned and run Garrett Miller. Their knowledgeable staff shares the mission of their farm as you tour and learn about cider making. Enjoy a 100% locally sourced lunch featuring over 10 Finger Lakes food makers, following their tour and tasting.

The second stop of the day is Sheldrake Point Winery. Enjoy the sights from their beautiful lakefront tasting room while sampling their wines, ranging from exquisitely crafted Rieslings to their proprietary red blends. Each wine is paired with a local cheese, and the tasting ends with their traditionally made, internationally recognized, wonderfully sweet ice wine.

Our last winery is the boutique winery of Nancy Tisch and Kit Kalfs: Bet The Farm. Bet the Farm is a wonderful final stop with great views, amazing hospitality and fabulous wines. Owner and wine maker Nancy Tisch and her partner, husband and General Manager Kit Kalfs will greet you and wow you with their curated pairings.

This tour culminates with a trip to the beautiful Taughannock Falls overlook. Standing at 215 feet high, it is the tallest waterfall in the Eastern US and is sure to take your breath away.
