Gasoline Surcharges on some tours

With the rising cost of gasoline, we need to make some changes to our pricing structure.

If you are staying on the lake you plan to tour, the cost is as quoted.

If you are visiting wineries and breweries on one lake while being picked up on another, there will be a gasoline surcharge added to your tour cost.

The best thing to do is book your lodging reservations near the lake you wish to visit.

Thank you for understanding.

Two Goats Brewing

Opening in 2010, Two Goats Brewing is one of the many breweries along the East shore of Seneca Lake, but it isn’t one that you will want to miss. The view is breathtaking and it is even better accompanied with their beer and Beef on Weck sandwich! They currently offer New England Style IPA, Kolsch, Cream Ale, Red Ale, Hefeweizen and everything in between, though it does rotate seasonally.

On the weekends during the months of April to October, stop by Two Goats for an extra surprise of live bands and entertainment underneath their covered entertainment stage! As with all breweries, they are very dog friendly and the staff are all as friendly as can be. All you need to do is ask your driver to add Two Goats Brewing to your tour and check it out yourself, see you soon!

Hermann J. Wiemer

Hermann J. Wiemer is becoming a staple winery among the dry wine drinkers that visit the Finger Lakes wine region. Founded in 1979, they pride themselves in hand picking and hand sorting all 80 acres of their grapes! Though they specialize in Rieslings, they also offer some red, rose, bubbly and white wine selections. While Hermann J. Wiemer is on the west side of Seneca Lake, their sister winery, Standing Stone, is on the east side of Seneca Lake. Both wineries offer a nice variety of dry red wine selections as well. If you are a dry wine drinker, make sure to schedule an appointment so that your driver can bring you to visit either winery, we would be happy to take you there!

Sheldrake Point

Sheldrake Point is a little off the main road, but definitely worth the extra few minutes! Or if you prefer, you can dock your boat at one of their eight slips on Cayuga Lake and walk along their beach to the tasting room across the street. Sheldrake Point offers dry red and white wines, as well as a nice selection of ice and dessert wines. This winery is a scenic stop among Cayuga Lake wineries so you can ask your driver if they could bring you there.

Buttonwood Grove Winery on Cayuga Lake

Like your bubbles? Located on the West side of Cayuga Lake is Buttonwood Grove Winery, and they have five different varietals to choose from! During the warmer months, their outdoor deck is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and often music. Check their website. Besides bubbly, they also offer dry varietals of red and white wine. Whether you visit for the wine, the view, or to stay in one of their cabins, Buttonwood is a winery that you should have on your Finger Lakes bucket list. We would love to take you there for a tasting!

A Visit to Belhurst Castle and Winery

Belhurst is a uniquely beautiful lodging and winery destination on Seneca Lake in Geneva, New York, the heart of the Finger Lakes. You may try the classic wine tasting, which offers a variety of wines to suit every palate. They also offer beer and cider tastings.

A favorite with our guests is the Wine and Cheese pairing. Here you are offered five wines and five cheeses, all local. If you are looking for a more lavish experience, they offer a Food and Wine pairing dinner. This is a six course meal with locally sourced ingredients to create unique, seasonally inspired dishes paired with Belhurst Castle wines.

Your Grapevine Country Tours driver will be more than happy to make Belhurst Castle a stop on your customized wine tour.
