Experience West Cayuga Lake on a Wine Tour with Lunch

This full-day wine tour features the best that the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail has to offer – from stunning views to exquisite wines. Visit three iconic wineries, explore the vineyards, learn about the region, while enjoying delicious wines, featured pairings, and local-sourced food.

We begin at Buttonwood Grove Winery  which has been owned by Dave and Melissa Pittard since 2014. They host us beautifully any time of year with a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the vineyard and/or winemaking process. After your tour, you will experience a private tasting, featuring a curated wine list with a local cheese pairing.

Enjoy a freshly prepared lunch at Buttonwood Grove.

Next up 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 local charcuterie, and the tasting ends with their traditionally made, internationally recognized, wonderfully sweet ice wine.

Our last stop is Bet the Farm Winery. A boutique winery of owner and winemaker Nancy Tisch and owner and general manager Kit Kalfs. It is a wonderful stop with great views, amazing hospitality and fabulous wines. Being hosted by an owner is amplified by their stories and masterfully curated pairings. Savor some of their first vintages of estate wines as well as their award winning blends.

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