Bully Hill Vineyards brings the fun to Keuka Lake with their storied history. More than a winery, visit the Greyton H. Taylor Wine Museum, their on-site restaurant, and stop into the gift shop and wine shop to pick up your favorites. Don't leave without a tasting of their signature wine 'Love My Goat Red', and 'Sweet Walter Red'.

Wine making wouldn't be done the way it is today in the Finger Lakes if it wasn't for Dr. Konstantin Frank and the 'Vinifera Revolution'. Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars boasts one of the most amazing views over the vineyards of the crisp red and oranges that surround the lake during the Fall season. Sample their famous Rieslings that make them New York's Most Award-winning Winery since 1962. For a more elevated experience book the October Barrel Experience in the 1886 Reserve Tasting Room.

On the East side of Keuka Lake, you'll find Ravines Wine Cellars. Combining Old World winemaking traditions with New World innovation and techniques Ravines creates award winning Rieslings. The view of Keuka through the rich colored trees is picture perfect.

Bringing France to the Finger Lakes, Domaine LeSeurre creates wines that can pair with anything. Their philosophy is "when people ask us what a good wine is, we love to say that it is the one you enjoy." Try their Rosés, Rieslings, and Chardonnays for a little touch of France in the Finger Lakes.
