Make your Finger Lakes vacation truly memorable by visiting Cayuga County’s ten wineries. Meet the winemakers, tour the vineyards, take part in special events and taste award-winning wines. Most of Cayuga County’s wineries are relatively small giving you a chance to get up close and personal with the people that grow the grapes, make the wines, and serve visitors.
Finger Lakes wineries are open year-round so there is no one time to visit. Consider what other activities you want to take in during your visit to the Finger Lakes. If it’s boating and swimming you are looking for then you’ll want to come during the summer months. More interested in leaf peeping and harvest festivals? You will find October is ideal. But, if you really want to have an intimate, relaxed wine tasting experience, the winter and early spring months are a great time to visit and you will find lodging prices are very attractive as well. With ten wineries in Cayuga County and more than 200 in the Finger Lakes Region, you will probably want to spend a few days tasting and exploring the region, so be sure to check out our wine packages.
As long as you have a designated driver you can do a self-guided driving tour of the wineries, but if you want to leave the driving to someone else, there are several tour companies that offer winery tours, including one that will take you wine tasting by boat!
